WEST BROMWICH, England (AP)

Saido Berahino converted an 87th-minute penalty to earn West Bromwich Albion a 1-0 victory over 10-man Newcastle on Wednesday, overshadowing the return of Nicolas Anelka to English Premier League action after his controversial goal celebration.

NEW YEAR FIREWORKS

Relive the best action images from the Barclays Premier League.

Newcastle looked like holding on for a draw despite the 62nd-minute sending-off of defender Mathieu Debuchy for a two-footed tackle on Claudio Yacob, only for goalkeeper Tim Krul to trip Matej Vydra in the area.

Berahino, a halftime substitute, slotted the penalty into the corner for the win.

Anelka started despite being the subject of a league investigation for celebrating a goal against West Ham on Saturday with a gesture that has anti-Semitic connotations and has caused a stir in his native France.
