West Bromwich Albion look hopeless and destined for relegation at the moment. Under the guidance of caretaker manager Darren Moore, they will face Swansea City at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
Earlier in the week, the Baggies parted ways with Alan Pardew following a spell of 18 games which resulted in only one win. The sacking came following West Brom’s 1-2 home defeat to Burnley.
The Baggies have lost their last eight league games and find themselves rock-bottom with 20 points. With six games left to play this season, they find themselves ten points adrift of the safety.
Moore is the third manager in charge of the club this season, and he will have a tricky job of motivating his players for the remaining games.
However, a home tie against the Swans represents a decent opportunity for the Baggies to end their losing streak. The Welsh side lost 2-0 at Manchester United last weekend, and their away form doesn’t inspire much confidence.
The Swans have picked up some remarkable results under Carlos Carvalhal, but they have managed only one win in their last 14 away games.
Swansea are in the 15th spot and only three points clear of the drop zone. They will also see the trip to the bottom-side as a decent opportunity to add some more points to their total.
Earlier in the season, Swansea registered a 1-0 win over their opponents in the reverse fixture at the Liberty Stadium.
