look ahead to Saturday’s Premier League fixture at the Hawthorns

West Brom are without a win in their last four games since an emphatic 4-2 victory at Sunderland last month.
Norwich meanwhile have been in sensational form since defeating Arsenal in October, the only blot on their copybook being a 4-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup.
