After West Brom’s initial superb start under the Steve Clarke, results have been hard to come by in recent weeks for the Baggies.

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.

Nine points separated the two clubs after the Canaries’ last league defeat, a 4-1 loss to Chelsea; now the gap is just two points.
