The Baggies have won only one home league game all season, a 4-0 victory over Burnley in late September, though their away form is currently keeping them out of the relegation zone.

In contrast, Sam Allardyce’s side arrive in excellent form following only one defeat in their last seven Premier League matches and they can close the gap on the top four with victory at The Hawthorns.
