Can Swansea deal another blow to West Brom’s floundering promotion hopes or will the hosts earn a first win for new boss Steve Bruce?
Read on to find out why we think the hosts will narrowly see this one out and stay on the right course for promotion.
📈 West Brom vs Swansea City
Russell Martin's team has a history of starting slowly and conceding the opening goal, which has occurred in five of their past six matches, making life extremely difficult for themselves. Any temptation to support the hosts to lead at half-time and until the final whistle must be dampened by the reality that Albion have failed to score in their past eight home league matches.
Despite their recent failures, certain parts of West Brom's play were reminiscent of a club capable of contending for the top two. They can switch seamlessly from defense to attack, with enough pace out wide and upfront to put the majority of opponents on the back foot. Andy Carroll, who joined in January, has been putting in some excellent shifts as well, and it's just a matter of time before he scores.
