Albion travel to St James’ Park tomorrow to take on Newcastle (2pm, Sky Sports).

However, just where will the key battles take place that could help to decide the match.

Well below are the five battles which could prove decisive:

Solly March vs Allan Saint Maximin:

The man who usually causes a lot of problems for the Magpies is Saint-Maximin with his pace and ability to produce something spectacular.

If Albion head-coach Graham Potter was to stick with March at left wing-back he could well have a tough afternoon.

March will have to keep his eye on Saint-Maximin as if he does not then he could have a big impact on the game.

Ryan Fraser v Tariq Lamptey:

The battle on the other wing should be interesting between Fraser and Lamptey.

With the two of them only being 5 foot 4 they may not be having many aerial duels, but it will be an intriguing battle on the deck.

Lamptey caused a lot of problems for the Chelsea defence on Monday after keeping Kai Havertz largely quiet.

However, if he does not keep Fraser quiet at St James’ Park his opportunities to get forward may be limited.

Jonjo Shelvey v Yves Bissouma:

This clash in the middle of the park would certainly be entertaining to watch.

Shelvey and Bissouma are both willing to get stuck in and like a shot from distance, so they could be very evenly matched.

Bissouma tries to get heavily involved for Albion in building the attacks and trying to get his side on the front foot.

Shelvey is a vital for Newcastle with his range of passing meaning he can run the show from midfield, if he is given the time and the space, which is something Albion will not want to allow him.

Leandro Trossard v Javier Manquillo:

Trossard was another player who caused Chelsea problems.

He will be looking to get at Manquillo, who is known to make a mistake.

If Trossard can get the better of Manquillo he could have a big say in the game.

Neal Maupay v Fabian Schar:

The Albion striker had a rather quiet evening against Chelsea.

However, he will be looking forward to the challenge of going up a big no-nonsense defender in Schar.

The Swiss international is known to make rash challenges and if Maupay can wind him up, he may well lose his temper.
