Newcastle’s Premier League season continued with another festive defeat, this time a one-nil loss to West Brom at the Hawthorns, on Monday.

Defeat means Newcastle will end the year in the bottom three but Paul Dummett had been denied the chance to give NUFC the lead when his header come off the woodwork with West Brom also denied when Victor Anichebe struck the frame of the goal.

The West Brom winner came when Darren Fletcher headed home late on but Newcastle ‘keeper Karl Darlow will be disappointed with the nature of the goal to beat him on his Premier League debut having come in for the ill Rob Elliot.

These were the other results.

Monday 28th December 2015
Crystal Palace 0-0 Swansea
Everton 3-4 Stoke
Norwich 2-0 Aston Villa
Watford 1-2 Tottenham
West Brom 1-0 Newcastle
Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth
Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea
West Ham 2-1 Southampton

These games are to be played.

Wednesday 30th December 2015
Sunderland v Liverpool 19:45

What a cracker at Goodison Park, a seven-goal thriller saw Stoke continue a good season with a four-three win with Arsenal also securing a win to recover from the Boxing Day mauling against Southampton (who then went and lost two-one at West Ham) with a win over Bournemouth at the Emirates to put them top.

The goalless draw at Old Trafford didn’t really do much to improve the season for either Man United or Chelsea with Spurs helping their own top four (given their not too far off the top, you have to say title) chances any harm with a two-one win at Watford.
