Tip Wolves - West Brom
Two teams looking to get back to winning ways meet in the early Premier League kick-off on Saturday when Wolves welcome West Brom to Molineux. The home side are 14th in the table with 22 points from 18 matches, their most recent outing being a 2-1 home defeat to Everton on Tuesday night. The visiting Baggies are 19th with eight points from 17 games. Heavy losses to Leeds and Arsenal outlined the size of the task at hand for new boss Sam Allardyce. The brief for Big Sam is to keep West Brom in the top flight. Having never been relegated in his career, Big Sam seemed a good fit for a club like West Brom. However, the early weeks of his reign suggest that his proud record may be under threat. West Brom failed to win 16 of their opening 17 matches this season, that sole victory coming at home. It means that they are winless on the road, where they have lost five of their eight games. Although that sounds bleak, the Baggies are unbeaten in two away matches, and those fixtures were against Manchester City and Liverpool. It's a strange season.
Nuno Espirito Santo would agree with that sentiment. His side challenged a Champions League place last season, so there's no doubt that his side was subpar in the first half of this campaign. However, a closer inspection of the table shows Wolves' 14th-place standing is more of a reflection on the open nature of this season than anything else. They are actually closer to the Champions League places (10 points) than the relegation zone (11 points). Even so, six victories from 18 games isn't a good enough return from a Wolves side capable of much more. Nuno will hope to end a five-game winless run in the league against West Brom. Although they have failed to win four of their last five home matches, the opposition has been challenging and only two of those games ended in defeat. We see the home side getting back to winning ways against a side low on confidence. Back Wolves.
