Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has been warming to Newcastle this year after we have done very well and surged to safety.
However, our four-game winning streak was halted by an ordinary looking Everton side on Monday night at Goodison Park, and that was our fifth successive league defeat against Everton.
So it is vital that we win tomorrow against the bottom of the table West Brom who will be relegated tomorrow if they don’t win this game.
Paul Merson – predicts Newcastle win
Paul has said this about the game:
“Newcastle will want to finish the season well for season ticket renewals.”
“Rafa Benitez’s squad have done well staying up.”
“I know the shackles are off West Brom, and they won at Old Trafford, but this will be a tough assignment.”
Paul predicts 2-0.
This game could prove to be difficult, but it’s the easiest game left on paper – so we have to go all out to ensure we get all 3 points.
Anything else will be a huge disappointment.
If we can win, we will have 44 points with just three games to play with the next game being at Watford.
