    Premier League: West Brom v Norwich Preview

    victor-anichebe-west-brom_3009688

    West Brom host Norwich on Saturday afternoon with both sides in the midst of an unconvincing start to the season.

    The Baggies are winless in their last four outings, conceding nine goals that have seen them sink to 13th place in the table.

    Norwich, on the other hand, have endured a stop-start beginning to the campaign and
    were on the wrong end of a Luis Suarez-inspired mauling at Anfield during the week.

    However, both may view the encounter as a chance to reverse their fortunes, with West Brom hardly firing on all cylinders at the Hawthornes (two wins this season) and Norwich woeful on the road (four losses on the bounce).

    The home side have a number of absentees, with Billy Jones facing a late fitness test after picking up a knock midweek and Jonas Olsson sidelined through suspension. Nicolas Anelka (groin), Scott Sinclair (hamstring) and Ben Foster (foot) all miss out too.

    Chris Hughton’s side will be without Robert Snodgrass (knee) and Anthony Pilkington (hamstring), while Ricky van Wolfswinkel (toe) is not expected to be back until next week.

    Gary Hooper could be recalled for the visitors, while Steve Clarke may toy with the idea of starting Victor Anichebe, after the forward struck against Manchester City last time out after coming off the bench.

    West Bromwich Albion have won only one of their last eight Barclays Premier League games (D3 L4).

    Robert Snodgrass opened the scoring in both Barclays Premier League games between Norwich and West Brom last season.

    Norwich City have lost five and won just two of the last seven league meetings with the Baggies.

    In their midweek game vs Man City, West Brom did not manage a shot on target until the 94th minute (Anichebe’s goal).

    Victor Anichebe has managed only two shots on target in nine Premier League appearances for the Baggies.

    West Brom have scored exactly two goals in each of their last three games at the Hawthorns but have won only one of those games (D1 L1).

    Norwich have conceded a total of 18 goals in their last four Premier league away games.

    Norwich are the only Premier League team for whom a substitute hasn’t scored this season.

    Jonas Olsson (153) has made 13 more clearances than any other Premier League player this season.

    John Ruddy has conceded more goals (28) than any other Premier League goalkeeper this season.
