West Brom result has impact for Newcastle United

Newcastle Fans 4

Tottenham may now have nothing to play for when they face Newcastle on the final day of the season.

Without playing on Monday night, Newcastle United's chances of avoiding relegation may have taken a small boost.

West Bromwich Albion secured a 1-1 draw away to Tottenham Hotspur, which has a big impact on the title race.

If Leicester City can now win one of their next two league games, then they will win the league.

This would mean Tottenham will have nothing to play for when they visit Newcastle United on the final day of the season, and could rest and rotate their players.

Even their rivals Arsenal continue to drop points, meaning Mauricio Pochettino's side could have secured bragging points over the Gunners with a game to spare, even if they cannot win the league.

Newcastle need every bit of help they can get, and this will certainly make their task of survival easier, which looks set to stretch into the final day of the season.

Relegation rivals Sunderland and Norwich City would have preferred to see Tottenham heading to Newcastle needing a win for their title chances, but this is now unlikely, and they could be without Dele Alli, if he is suspended retrospectively by the FA for an off the ball punch.
