This comes as little surprise considering Albion have been relegated in four of the 12 seasons they have played in the Premier League, finishing 19th twice and 20th twice.
That was the second time in three years that the Cottagers escaped the Championship but memories of their dismal top-flight outing in 2018-19, which saw the club go through three managers and pick up just seven wins, will loom large.
Dean Smith’s side looked destined for the drop following a run of 10 games without victory but avoided an immediate return to the second tier thanks to Jack Grealish’s 84th-minute goal on the final day of the season, which gave them a crucial point at West Ham.
It was the seventh season in a row that the Eagles ended with a points total in the 40s, although their tally of just 31 goals scored was the lowest in the club’s 114-year history.
Newcastle have made significant strides in the transfer market and are 9/4 (3.25) to be relegated back to the Championship.

West Ham United can be backed at 9/2 (5.50) to be relegated after nine years in the Premier League, although their run nearly ended last term until the Hammers took eight points from their final four games.
