    • West Bromwich Albion
    • Newcastle United
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+5' There's the final whistle, and it is a richly deserved win for West Brom, who go provisionally seventh in the table!
    • 90+4' Tchoyi dribbles purposefully, albeit to the corner flag...
    • 90+2' GOAL!! Lovenkrands shovels in a consolation goal from close range after a Carroll shot is saved (following a really blatant handball by the striker).
    • 90+1' Four minutes of stoppage time that Newcastle really do not want to play.
    • 90' Somewhere along the line Alan Smith has been booked, although I confess I have no idea when, where or how. Sorry.
    • 89' Newcastle's woeful away form continues - that was galactically terrible defending for the third goal.
    • 88' GOAL!!! Awful defending from Newcastle! Odemwingie beats the offside trap and strides through unchallenged, rounds Krul and scores! So, so easy!
    • 86' A frustrated Jonas Gutierrez kicks a microphone over, and the Sky commentator threatens to send him a bill.
    • 85' West Brom change: Steven Reid replaces James Morrison.
    • 84' Sol Campbell booked for blocking off Barnes. Not the best afternoon for the old man.
    • 83' Depressing viewing for Newcastle fans, this. They are offering almost nothing and look extremely unlikely to salvage anything from the game.
    • 82' Barnes has space down the right and waits for support... he pulls it back for Morrison who hits a defender with his shot.
    • 81' BRUNT!! Fires goalwards from a tight angle on the left and Krul flails to palm it to safety!
    • 80' Carroll flicks on for Lovenkrands sprinting into the box but the Dane completely miscues his shot!
    • 79' A rare misplaced pass gives Newcastke possession but they soon give it away and Steven Taylor shakes his head ruefully.
    • 78' A change for West Brom, as Giles Barnes comes on for Jerome Thomas. A great ovation for Thomas as he leaves the pitch.
    • 77' Morrison tries an extravagaant backheel to find Thomas on the left side of the box, and the shot is blocked...
    • 76' West Brom have STILL got it...
    • 75' Cries of 'Ole!' ring around the Hawthorns. This is more like the West Brom we saw earlier in the season.
    • 74' Newcastle are chasing shadows at the moment. West Brom are keeping the ball extremely well and look set to end their run of poor form.
    • 73' Alan Smith and Nile Ranger replace Guthrie and Wayne Routledge. Newcastle need an attacking threat and fast...
    • 72' Guthrie has stayed down after slipping over in the centre-circle for the goal. The Newcastle physio calls for a stretcher.
    • 71' GOAL!!! PETER ODEMWINGIE!! Guthrie's slip lets the Nigerian in, he has Morrison and Brunt either side but chooses to go himself, twists away from Campbell and Taylor and fires into the bottom-right corner!
    • 70' Morrison yet again! Drags his shot just wide of the right post this time, although Krul probably had it covered.
    • 69' Morrison has another chance, this time dragging a right-foot shot wide.
    • 68' Chance for Campbell!! He attacks a swirling free-kick eight yards out but heads tamely wide!
    • 67' James Morrison has a shot from the edge of the area, but it lacks pace and Krul makes a relatively simple save.
    • 65' Newcastle threaten again, but Guthrie spoils it by smacking a pass to Gutierrez all the way out of play.
    • 64' Newcastle are starting to exert a bit of pressure here, and Carson fails to deal with a Jonas cross from the left. Both keepers have done their share of flapping - Carson just got a faint punch on it and that was enough...
    • 63' Carson is closed down and hacks away before Lovenkrands can get to him.
    • 61' Late challenge by Danny Guthrie, who is booked for flying in close to halfway.
    • 60' Thomas wriggles his way down the left and is eventually crowded out by two defenders.
    • 59' Carroll races inside from the left and forces the ball goalwards from the left, it nearly squirms in but there is a defender on hand to hack the ball to safety.
    • 57' Not the best cross - straight into Krul's arms.
    • 56' Jose Enrique booked for bundling over Tchoyi. And a chance for Brunt to deliver from the West Brom right.
    • 55' Carroll takes it down the left channel and has Lovenkrands in the middle... poor cross from the striker, a good couple of yards in front of his intended target!
    • 54' Jara marauds down the right but just overruns the ball and knocks it out for a goal kick.
    • 52' Brunt places the ball very deliberately on the ground and crosses... Krul flaps and misses it completely and Scharner volleys over the open goal!!
    • 52' Tchoyi crosses from the right and forces another corner out of Campbell.
    • 51' DECENT SAVE CARSON!! Routledge's cross from the right finds Taylor, who brings a sharp stop from the West Ham keeper!
    • 50' Carroll heads this corner out, and Newcastle try to break... Dorrans impedes Guthrie.
    • 49' Brunt delivers a superb corner that somehow evades everybody on its way through and Campbell nicks it out for a corner on the other side.
    • 49' Thomas crosses from the left and Taylor gets a head on it, sending the ball looping up and over the bar - it lands on top of the net. Corner.
    • 48' Sol Campbell has taken the captain's armband on the day of his 500th Premier League appearance, incidentally.
    • 47' Guthrie delivers a corner from the left, which is headed clear at the near post.
    • 46' Second half under way, and Newcastle have made a change - Peter Lovenkrands on for Ameobi.
    • 45+2' That's half-time. West Brom deserve their lead, even if it hasn't been the most thrilling fare. Back in 10 minutes or so.
    • 45+1' Routledge dribbles past Cech, and is very unlucky to be penalised for supposedly pulling the defender back.
    • 45' Guthrie delivers a free-kick into the West Brom box. No, actually he doesn't. He clouts it directly out for a West Brom goal kick. Very, very, VERY wasteful.
    • 44' A rare cross into the West Brom box, and oddly Steven Taylor is the furthest player forward. It doesn't matter, as Carson makes a routine catch.
    • 42' Morrison tries a shot from the edge of the box... it is not very powerful and Krul makes a slightly untidy save.
    • 41' The final pass is not quite coming off for the Baggies. This time Brunt misplaces a pass.
    • 40' West Brom work the ball expertly down the left and Cech crosses for Odemwingie who glances his header well wide.
    • 39' Free-kick West Brom on the left, and another chance for Brunt to deliver... Campbell gets a glancing header on it and the ball goes away for a Baggies throw.
    • 38' Odemwingie flicks the corner on and it whistles past Morrison at the back post.
    • 37' Tchoyi rifles a shot from an impossible angle on the right, and Krul beats it out for a corner!
    • 36' Peter Odemwingie was standing in an offside position when Tchoyi scored, and it has to be said he was obscuring Krul's view. No matter, it seems those kind of goals are scored every week these days...
    • 34' Tchoyi knocks the ball past Jose Enrique and falls over. Referee Mike Dean rightly says it is a goal kick.
    • 33' Well, now he've had a shot on target, and it was a really smart finish by Tchoyi, who has had a great start to life in English football.
    • 32' GOAL!!! SOMEN TCHOYI GIVES WEST BROM A DESERVED LEAD!! Brunt finds him on the edge of the box, he shifts on to his left foot and curls it past several defenders into the left corner of the net!
    • 31' Carroll flicks on and Cech shepherds it back to Carson under pressure from Routledge, and the pair have a set-to for some reason...
    • 30' Caroll challenges Cech in the air but cannot beet Jonas's cross at the right-hand post. He responds by aiming swear words at thin air.
    • 29' Not much goalmouth action so far, it has to be said. No shots on target from either side, as far as I can recall.
    • 28' Caroll flicks on through the middle but the ball bounces through to Carson.
    • 27' Thomas crosses from the left, but there are no forwards there and Jose Enrique chests it back to Krul.
    • 26' Ameobi leaps to meet the cross and heads it over. The snood brothers, Tiote and Routledge, had positioned themselves at the edge of the box.
    • 25' The corner comes to nothing, but Newcastle come forward and win another.
    • 24' Jonas hits a deep cross from the left that goes all the way to Routledge, who wins a corner.
    • 23' Jara is finding lots of space to cross. This time he finds Dorrans via Odemwingie, and the Scot shoots over from the edge of the box.
    • 22' A poor Campbell clearance ricochets to Odemwingie who races through and drills a shot just wide. Good closing down by Taylor and Jose Enrique who bailed Campbell out.
    • 21' Jerome Thomas is fouled by Simpson... and gets reprimanded for diving! Looked a foul to me...
    • 20' Yellow card Jonas Gutierrez for tugging his man back.
    • 19' Newcastle are just inching their way into the game. By which I mean they have crossed halfway with the ball.
    • 17' Now it's Scharner's turn to come off worse from an aerial clash with Carroll. A real physical confrontation, that one...
    • 16' Jara finds Tchoyi at the edge of the box who attempts a rubbish flick then commits a foul. Not his best moment.
    • 15' West Brom have enjoyed 73 per cent possession in the opening quarter of an hour.
    • 14' A long shot from Dorrans hits his own man Odemwingie, before Brunt shoots high and wide from 25 yards. He then very obviously mouths an obscenity..
    • 13' Cech overlaps down the left, slides off the pitch and whacks into the advertising hoardings. He's fine, though.
    • 12' Morrison flicks it on to the back post where Scharner volleys high over from a tight angle.
    • 11' Krul slides to collect the ball but takes it out for a corner which Brunt will take..
    • 10' Jara attempts to spread the ball right to Tchoyi, but overhits his pass and the ball rolls out for a Newcastle throw.
    • 9' Taylor heads clear from a Thomas cross, but the ball is soon back with the home side who are well on top here.
    • 8' Dorrans tries to thread a tricky ball to the onrushing Brunt, but cannot get it quite right.
    • 7' Brunt's corner is short, and the first man hooks it away from danger.
    • 6' Campbell hurries a clearance and slices it out for a throw, from which the Baggies win a corner.
    • 4' Scharner has been assigned to Andy Carroll, and the Austrian is already exerting his considerable aerial prowess.
    • 3' Tchoyi plays a diagonal ball into the area, but it is easy for Campbell to clear.
    • 2' Andy Carroll goes down clutching his head after a challenge in midfield, but the Newcastle striker is not badly hurt.
    • 1' Game on! West Brom kick off, playing from left to right in their white and navy stripes. Newcastle in a royal blue change strip.
    • 13:25 Here's how the Premier League table stands after Saturday's games. Premier League table
    • 13:20 Here's a handy recap of this morning's papers, with Liverpool ready to swoop for a load of Frenchmen. Sunday paper round
    • 13:15 Sol Campbell is set to make his 500th Premier League appearance. He will become only the fourth player in Premier League history to reach this milestone after David James (572), Ryan Giggs (555) and Gary Speed (535), and the first ever defender to achieve this feat.
    • 13:10 West Brom conceded in each of their last 14 Premier League matches - the same as Tottenham. Only Wolves (15) have gone longer without a PL clean sheet in the division this season. Their only clean sheet this season came in their 1-0 home victory against Sunderland on August 21.
    • 13:05 West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United have met 108 times in the league. West Brom have won 38, Newcastle 40 and there have been 30 draws. Newcastle are unbeaten in their last 17 league matches against West Brom, since a 2-1 away defeat in old Division One on Boxing Day 1984. These sides draw in both meetings in the Championship last season.
    • 13:00 I have just happened across this on YouTube. It's not intended as a taunt, more as a historical artefact. Michael Owen signs for Newcastle
    • 12:55 Newcastle also have suspension worries, with centre-backs Mike Williamson and Fabricio Coloccini both banned. Steven Taylor and Sol Campbell deputise. Kevin Nolan is still out with an ankle problem.
    • 12:50 West Brom's key men Chris Brunt, Peter Odemwingie and Paul Scharner have all come through late fitness tests - a major boost for the Baggies. Nicky Shorey is on the bench after illness. The popular Graham Dorrans gets a start with Youssuf Mulumbu suspended.
