It was the classic game of two halves and the home side were lucky to still be in with a shout after the break.

For Clarke, though, it was another game to chalk off in an impressive first season at the club.

He said: "Newcastle were better and sharper than us in the first half.

"They looked like a side who wanted to secure their place in the Premier League next season.

"All credit to them at the start of the game. They created a number of chances and we were very lucky to hang in there."

Clarke had defender Billy Jones to thank for rescuing his side a point. The result leaves West Brom in eighth place and five points behind Liverpool.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
