West Brom are dropping quickly down the league table as they get ready to host Watford at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
The Baggies started the season with two wins, but since then, they have picked just two points in four league games, and have bowed out of Carabao Cup. In their last fixture, they lost 2-0 at Arsenal, and prior to that, they had managed a goalless draw against West Ham at home in the league.
After six game weeks in the season, the Baggies find themselves in the 12th spot with eight points and a goal difference of -2. Tony Pulis’ side have struggled to score goals this season, but they have been characteristically solid on the defensive front.
Meanwhile, the Hornets have made a solid start to the new season under new manager Marco Silva. They find themselves in the impressive sixth position with 11 points. The London side have lost just one game this season, and that came against Manchester City almost a fortnight ago.
The Hornets have picked up some impressive results this season, and they would back themselves to get something out of this game.
Last season, each side won at home against the other, and the Baggies claim a 3-1 win in the corresponding fixture.
