Five Key Matches
v Middlesbrough (H) on August 28
If West Brom wants to avoid relegation, this is a key encounter early in the campaign.
v Tottenham Hotspur (H) on October 16
Following the visit of Spurs, the Baggies head to Liverpool and host Manchester City. Anything out of this clash would be handy.
v Hull City (A) on November 27
West Brom visit the KC Stadium, having hosted Burnley a week prior. These are the games they must take something home from if they’re to survive.
v Swansea City (H) on December 14
Facing another team who could battle, the Baggies have a chance to claim three points heading into the festive season.
v Burnley (A) on May 7
Late in the season against a team expected to be battling relegation, this could be decisive.
SBS Host Lucy Zelic's Prediction: 15th
After two almost identical mid-table campaigns, West Brom have a stable yet unremarkable playing group that has added versatile attacker Matt Phillips. However, goals from Venezuela hitman Salomon Rondon will be required to lift Tony Pulis’s side into the top half.
