The Baggies welcome Crystal Palace to The Hawthorns in West Bromwich on Sunday for this Premier League match.

 

This is the first match between these two sides since they faced each other here in the Carabao Cup 3rd round in 2018. Palace won the match 0-3 with Andros Townsend scoring a brace on the night. It extended Palace’s unbeaten run in this head-to-head to 4 matches.

 

Palace have had the better of the results between these sides in the Premier League, with 5 wins to 4. However, overall the head-to-head record stands at 16 wins for West Brom to Palace’s 11.

West Brom vs Crystal Palace: What are the betting odds?

The Baggies have won just 1 of the last 6 home matches against Palace. Their 1-0 win against Sheffield United last weekend is their first victory since their promotion in the summer. They are the 15/8 outsiders to get a 2nd victory in as many games at the weekend.

 

Palace have won 3 of the last 4 matches between these sides. However, they have lost their last 2 matches in the Premier League. Palace are the 31/20 favourites to get back to winning ways with a win at The Hawthorns.

 

In the battle to avoid the drop, avoiding defeat to a fellow relegation-battling side is crucial. Odds of 11/5 are available if you see West Brom and Crystal Palace sharing the points on Sunday.

West Brom vs Crystal Palace: Recommended bets

West Brom’s last home victory over Crystal Palace came back in February 2016 by a scoreline of 3-2. A repeat of this score on Sunday is available at odds of 40/1.

 

Crystal Palace won 0-3 on their last visit to The Hawthorns back in September 2018. You can back them at 28/1 for the same scoreline here on Sunday.

 

The last Premier League match here in this head-to-head finished 0-0. Another bore draw is available at 15/2.

 

The most recent West Brom vs Crystal Palace matches have typically been low scoring games, with 6 of the last 8 finishing under 2.5 goals. You can back another low scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 4/6 on for under 2.5 goals.

 

Wilf Zaha (above) is the only Crystal Palace player to have found the net more than once this season. He is their top scorer with 5 Premier League goals so far this campaign. The Ivory Coast international is 11/2 to score the game’s opener on Sunday. Or 2/1 to bag a goal at any time during the game against the Baggies.

West Brom vs Crystal Palace: Match preview

Sunday’s Premier League fixtures pits two teams against each other in what could be an early relegation 6-pointer, featuring the sides in 18th and 15th in the table respectively.

 

Crystal Palace have finished roughly 10 points above the relegation zone in each of the last 3 seasons. They currently sit 7 points above the drop zone after the first 10 rounds of this season.

 

However, as we have seen plenty of times in the past, things can change very quickly down at the bottom of the table. A side that can string together a few wins would jump from relegation zone to mid-table.

 

Likewise, as we have seen in France with Saint-Etienne, a losing streak will drag you down the table. In the case of Les Verts, it dragged them from the top of the table down to 16th in the space of 7 games.

 

It is a strange season in which coronavirus or injuries can derail any momentum you have in the space of a few weeks. Which is why getting points on the board early will be vital to those who want to avoid a tough battle to escape the drop in May.

 

The gap between Palace and West Brom could be as little as 4 points, or as much as 10 points, come Monday morning. Which of those two numbers becomes reality will dictate whether Palace are nervously looking over their shoulders, or ambitiously looking above them at the European places which would then be just 1 win away.

West Brom team news vs Crystal Palace

Sam Field is the only player ruled out of Sunday’s match for the Baggies. His manager confirmed last week he should be back in training soon for the club.

“He had an injury in training, then he got corona. Now he’s back! He’s negative regarding the virus and his knee is stable.”
– Slaven Bilic, West Brom Manager

 

Jake Livermore and Kieran Gibbs haven’t been involved in the last 2 matchday squad due to coronavirus. They have now tested negative and are available for selection once again.

 

Conor Townsend suffered a knock against Manchester United to his knee. Bilic (above) doesn’t believe the injury is serious and faces a late fitness test to be in the squad on Sunday.

 

Grady Diangana was an unused substitute for last weekend’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United. He may need to be patient on the bench if his team keeps winning in his absence.

Crystal Palace team news vs West Brom

Wayne Hennessey has been ruled out of action until at least January with injury by his manager Roy Hodgson. Palace are well stocked in the goalkeeping department though, with Jack Butland and Stephen Henderson both very capable deputies to Vicente Guaita.

 

Connor Wickham hasn’t been involved for Palace so far this season and Hodgson hasn’t updated his progress on returning to action in quite some time. He will likely be involved for the Under-23 side before featuring for the first team again as he battles back to full fitness.

 

Nathan Ferguson is another who is yet to be named in a match-day squad this season. He is out with a knee injury which is still causing some pain. He will likely be eased back into action with a lot of caution.

 

Luka Milivojevic has missed the last 3 league matches due to Coronavirus. He is now testing negative, back in training and expected to start on Sunday.

 

Wilfried Zaha (above) has also been out due to Coronavirus, missing the last 2 games. He will come back into the starting XI on Sunday with one from Ayew, Batshuayi or Eze making way.
