West Brom vs Man Utd – Premier League preview and team news

Manchester United will be aiming to continue their renewed assault on the top four of the Premier League by registering their fifth consecutive win in all competitions when they play West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. The home side are good form themselves and have shown some attacking vigour while taking four points which have seemingly put them well out of the reach of the bottom three. There was plenty of creativity and flair on display in their last home match against Crystal Palace as the front three wreaked havoc, and…

Leicester vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

After their late heroics at the weekend, Leicester City will hope to remain ahead of the rest by claiming victory at home to West Bromwich Albion, who are now well clear of danger. The match against Norwich City on Saturday was a new test for the leaders, who have been used to seeing opposition teams come on to them, which has given them the opportunity to counter-attack in such devastating fashion. That has been the blueprint of their success this term, but Norwich decided to come to the King Power…

West Brom vs Crystal Palace – Premier League preview and team news

Crystal Palace will be desperately looking to end their awful run of results in the Premier League by winning away to fellow mid-table side West Bromwich Albion in Saturday’s late kick-off. The home side were in need of a victory themselves last time out in the top-flight when they travelled to Everton, and in a fashion typical of a Tony Pulis team, they delivered the goods right when it mattered. They had to withstand almost constant pressure throughout the 90 minutes, but a performance characterised by rock-solid defensive organisation and a…

Everton vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Everton will be looking for their third Premier League win in a row when they play host to a West Bromwich Albion side that needs points to avoid being dragged into a battle to avoid relegation. A dominant display against Newcastle United that saw two late penalties give their winning margin a comprehensive look, may just have been the catalyst for a strong final few months of the season for Everton, who have hit back brilliantly after being harshly denied a place in the final of the Capital One Cup.…

Price per goal revealed for every Premier League team

The Premier League and its ticket prices, it’s been a hot topic recently, with Liverpool fans protesting a 30 per cent rise and eventually getting the Reds’ management to reverse the decision. Now, Eurosport has revealed the ticket price per goal for all 20 Premier League clubs. Like in the standings, Leicester City lead the way, with fans of the Foxes having effectively paid only £7.76 for every goal they have witnessed. There have been 34 goals scored at the King Power Stadium in a dozen matches so far, 21 by Leicester. West…

Newcastle vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Currently two points adrift of safety, Newcastle United will be hoping to boost their Premier League survival hopes with a win over West Bromwich Albion, whose fears will increase should they lose on Tyneside. There have been some positive signs coming from Newcastle in recent weeks both in terms of their efforts on the pitch and their dealings during the January transfer window, but they took something of a step back in midweek as they suffered an eventually heavy defeat away to Everton. While it was only two late penalties…

What would happen to the Premier League table if only goals from English players counted?

It’s a hypothetical question that will never become a reality, but still it’s fun to know. What would happen to the Premier League table if only goals from English players counted? For starters, Tottenham would jump to the lead, collecting an impressive 52 points, seven more than they have now, sitting in third place. The Spurs would also have conceded just two goals in 24 matches, not losing once. Leicester City would drop from first to second place, as they would lose three points (50 tot 47). Still, the Foxes…

West Brom vs Swansea – Premier League preview and team news

Swansea City will be looking for their third consecutive Premier League victory when they head to the Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion, who are just three points above them in the current standings. Head Coach Tony Pulis blamed a busy schedule for West Brom’s indifferent performance at home to lowly Aston Villa in their last match, which came just a week after they were well beaten 3-0 at Southampton, so he will be hoping that any fatigue will have subsided as they take on one of their direct rivals…

West Brom vs Aston Villa – Premier League preview and team news

Aston Villa will be aiming to make it seven points from nine when they make the short trip to face Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion, who are after their third straight home win in the league. The last Premier League outing for West Brom was a highly uncharacteristic 3-0 defeat at Southampton, where they struggled to get going from the first whistle and never looked likely to get back into the match after conceding the penalty kick that led to them going two goals down inside 35 minutes. Head Coach…

Premier League dominates highest earning club rankings but fails to take top spot

It’s the time of the year for the 2016 Deloitte Football Money League and again Real Madrid lead the way, despite the Premier League clubs dominating the top 30, as reported by Goal. The Football Money League details the 2014/15 season and measures a club’s earnings from matchday revenue, broadcast rights and commercial sources, ranking them on that basis. Spanish giants Real Madrid retained their first place for the 11th year in a row, having generated £439 million last season (up from £418m). They are followed by La Liga rivals FC…

Southampton vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

West Bromwich Albion will be attempting to win for the third time in four Premier League matches as they come up against a Southampton side that lies above them in table through goal difference alone. Wednesday evening saw Southampton record a welcome victory over a below-par Watford and deliver some respite after a mightily challenging few weeks which had seen a downturn in results, indiscipline among the squad, and some of the club’s key players being linked with a move away during the January transfer window. The performance was much more…

Chelsea considering four strikers to strengthen squad

Chelsea have settled on a reported four-man shortlist of strikers they could look to sign in January, as reported by different news outlets, among them The Times. Manager Guus Hiddink recently conceded that The Blues are short of depth up front. At the moment, the Dutchman’s only fit options are Diego Costa and Loic Remy, which is a deep concern. Accoring to The Times’ Matt Hughes, the defending Premier League champions are “considering making bids” for Atletico Madrid’s Jackson Martinez, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and West Bromwich Albion’s Saido Berahino. Chelsea are also looking at…

Chelsea vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Chelsea will be hoping to make it eight points from a possible 12 under interim boss Guss Hiddink as they take on West Bromwich Albion, who are three points above their opponents after two straight wins. After going away to Manchester United and getting the clean sheet they wanted, Chelsea looked much more like their old selves in sweeping aside the challenge of London rivals Crystal Palace. They spent the majority of the first half hour of match forced back into their own half, but once Diego Costa unselfishly set…

West Brom vs Stoke – Premier League preview and team news

Stoke City will be aiming to collect a third consecutive Premier League victory when they make the short trip to West Bromwich Albion, but in order to do so will have to overcome their hoodoo against former boss Tony Pulis. Since leaving the Potters in the summer of 2013, Pulis has won on each of the three occasions in which he has faced them, all by the goal to nil. A triumph by the same scoreline against struggling Newcastle United on Monday was a crucial one for his current side,…

West Brom vs Newcastle – Premier League preview and team news

Newcastle United will be hoping to bounce back from the bitter disappointment of their Boxing Day loss by collecting all three points away to West Bromwich Albion, who will be intent on avoiding a third straight defeat. This has turned into a very important game for the Baggies, who are now only three points above the drop zone with their opponents lying in the final relegation spot as things stand, so there will be some concern around if they were to lose this one. They came away very frustrated on…

Swansea vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Swansea City will be hoping to escape the bottom three, but will have to work extremely hard to get the better of a West Bromwich Albion team which has proved stubborn on their travels this term. There were a number of positive signs for the Welsh club to draw on from their goalless draw at home to West Ham United last weekend as they returned to their principle of taking the game to the opposition and playing neat passing, attacking football. The only thing which let them down was a…

West Brom vs Bournemouth – Premier League preview and team news

Bournemouth will be aiming to win for the third successive Premier League game when they make the trip to the Hawthorns to face the stern test that West Bromwich Albion invariably provide. Only a cruel deflection in the fifth minute of stoppage time at the end of the game prevented West Brom from coming away with all three points at Liverpool last weekend, where the danger they pose from set-pieces was very evident. Defenders Craig Dawson and Jonas Olsson were the ones to profit from dead-ball situations, with the latter…

Liverpool vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Liverpool will be aiming to return to winning ways on Sunday as they take on a West Bromwich Albion side who will undoubtedly be intent on making it difficult for them. After playing Chelsea and Manchester City off the park and then scoring six at Southampton in the Capital One Cup, there was quite a furore around Jurgen Klopp’s team amid talk of a potential title bid. But the game away to Newcastle United last weekend was a reminder that such talk is somewhat fanciful as they turned in an abysmal performance…

West Brom vs Tottenham – Premier League preview and team news

Tottenham will be aiming to continue their phonemenal form with success against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, a venue at which they have not tasted defeat for nearly seven years. The home side will be pleased with their haul of four points from two challenging games since the international break, following a terrific win over title hopefuls Arsenal with a satisfactory draw away to West Ham United. The latter saw a good response after half-time from the Baggies, who were fortunate not to have been just the one goal behind at…

West Ham vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

West Ham United will be aiming to pick up their first win in four Premier League matches when host a West Bromwich Albion side which will still be buzzing after their win over title hopefuls Arsenal last time out. Manager Slaven Bilic will have been reasonably happy with the first 20 minutes of West Ham’s last game at London rivals Tottenham, but from the moment they fell behind his tactics began to unravel. Playing as the lone striker, Andy Carroll struggled and did not look fully match-fit, while the talents…

West Brom vs Arsenal – Premier League preview and team news

Arsenal will be looking to take their unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven games by claiming a fourth successive win over West Bromwich Albion, who are keen to improve their home record. The West Midlands club have won just one of their six matches on their own turf, conceding three in each of their four defeats. Their defensive record on the road is decidedly better, but that counted for little in their last match at Manchester United as a determined rearguard action was unable to hold out for any…

Man Utd vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Manchester United will be hoping to build on their confidence boosting Champions League in the week by return to form domestically as they entertain West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. The Old Trafford faithful clearly made their feelings known against CSKA Moscow, crying for their team to attack with greater purpose and then an almost universal chorus of boos when Anthony Martial was substituted by manager Louis van Gaal. The decision was eventually vindicated to the extent that United were able to find a winner in the end through recently maligned…

West Brom vs Leicester – Premier League preview and team news

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to continue their rise up the Premier League table by gaining a third straight victory, but opponents Leicester City have lost fewer matches than anyone in the top-flight so far this season. It was a rearguard action early on for Albion last time out at Norwich City, but once the pressure had subsided they took control of the game and created a number of very presentable goalscoring opportunities. It took until early in the second half to make one of them pay, with the technically…

Norwich vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Norwich City will be determined to bounce back from their thrashing at lowly Newcastle United by seeing off a West Bromwich Albion side that they have already knocked out of the Capital One Cup. For the remainder of this season, the Premier League is unlikely to see many worse defensive displays than the one Norwich produced on Tyneside, shipping six goals through a lack of intensity and organisation as well as carelessness in possession. Too many players were committed forward in attacking positions, leaving holding midfielder Alexander Tettey badly exposed…

West Brom vs Sunderland – Premier League preview and team news

Sam Allardyce begins his attempts to turn around Sunderland’s fortunes as he takes his new side to West Bromwich Albion, who have picked up just one point from a possible 12 at home so far this season. The hosts might come into this game feeling more wary than they perhaps would have done a couple of weeks ago, with Sunderland surely set to raise their game a little here under a new manager. The Baggies are under a little pressure to return to form having lost their last two games,…
