Premier League: West Brom v Norwich match preview
look ahead to Saturday’s Premier League fixture at the Hawthorns

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.
