    West Brom boss desperate to break duck against Swansea

    Probable Lineups:

    swansea west bromSwansea City (4-2-3-1): Vorm, Rangel, Williams, Chico, Davies, De Guzmán, Britton, Dyer, Hernandez, Routledge, Bony

    The Swans were not able to see out a 1-0 home lead over Crystal Palace in their last fixture and now could very easily be dragged into the relegation zone.  There are also lacking a creative attacking midfielder, with Hernandez most likely to return – Shelvey and Michu being the other two. Bony is a doubt due to illness but is expected to be fit enough to lead the line for the Welsh side.

    West Bromwich Albion (4-2-3-1): Foster, Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Mulumbu, Morrison, Thievy, Gera, Berahino Anichebe

    Pepe Mel was hit with the news that Chris Brunt will miss up to six weeks with a knee injury sustained in their 3-0 home loss to Manchester United.  Tied on points with Cardiff who lie in 18th, the Baggies do have a favorable run of fixtures on the horizon but a win at the Liberty would ease the pressure for the run in.  Saido Berahino will fill in on the left for Brunt, with Zoltan Gera playing behind Victor Anichebe ‘in the hole’.

    If he can stay fit for the match, then Wilfried Bony will be a major factor if the Swans are to get the three points against West Brom.  Three goals in four games highlights his recent attacking form.

    Swansea City vs. West Bromwich Albion: An Alternative Preview

    Swansea City have won just four of their last 19 Barclays Premier League home matches (W4 D7 L8).

    West Brom have won none of their last 10 Barclays Premier League away matches (W0 D4 L6).

    Swansea have won four of the five Premier League meetings with West Brom (W4 L1).

    Garry Monk has more points (5) in his four Premier League games as Swansea manager than Michael Laudrup collected in his final eight (4).

    West Ham are the only away team to keep a clean sheet at Liberty Stadium in the Premier League this season.

    If the Premier League season had started on December 1, West Brom would be bottom of the table.

    The Baggies have not scored a first half goal in eight of their last nine league games. In the other match during this run they scored three first half goals but lost 4-3 to Aston Villa.

    If Swansea score in this game it will be the first time they’ve scored in five successive Premier League matches since October 2011 (six games).

    Swansea have already benefited from seven own goals this season, more than any side did in 2012-13 (Man Utd had the most, with six).

    11 of Victor Anichebe’s 20 Premier League goals have come as a substitute.
