West Bromwich Albion (acting head coach Gary Megson)
The bosses of the club continue to search for new head coach. After the refusal of Samuel Allardyce, Slaven Bilić from West Ham has also refused to take this position. His refusal Croatian specialist explained by elementary desire to relax a little bit and to “recharge the batteries”.
As a result, for today the main challenger for a vacant position is the former coach of Newcastle and Crystal Palace Alan Pardew.
Newcastle United (the head coach Rafael Benítez)
For a long time the Spanish coach of the Magpies had to make excuses after ridiculous defeat of his team during the Saturday home meeting against Watford (0:3). It is obvious that in explanation of this failure Rafael Benítez has named different traditional reasons – injuries and disqualifications of several players.
But all the same, the fact remains. 4 defeats in a row had significantly separated Newcastle from UEFA zone and brought closer to relegation zone.
It is obvious that after such terrible defeat, especially at the overcrowded with fans St James' Park the team of Rafael Benítez wants to bounce back.
The hosts of the Hawthorns after their fantastic draw at Wembley don’t want to rest on laurels. Here the most actual is the bet made possible victory of WBA with handicap (0).
