Betting prediction: West Brom 1-0 Wolves

West Brom welcomes a Wolves outfit who limp into proceedings on the back of a 4-0 drubbing at Molineux by Burnley last weekend. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men will be looking to finish the final weeks of the season on a high though it’s difficult to see Wolves finish in the top half like their two previous seasons.

Sam Allardyce’s troops are not mathematically relegated yet but have it all to do and more at the minute, and nothing short of a win will suffice. Three points would propel them ahead of Fulham but still 8-points behind Newcastle United in 17th.

Wolves have been ravaged by injuries once more, but still have the quality to rely on to try to bounce back after last week. A draw could be the end result here.

West Brom vs Wolves: Recommended bets

Result/Both Teams to Score: West Brom – No

West Brom has been better on the whole in front of goal in their last four Premier League outings. Even though they were blanked by Leicester City recently, ten of their thirty goals in the league this season have come their recent decent run of form (2-1-1). With little issues in the squad, the Baggies should be up for the fight against a Wolves side who have only scored in one of their last six despite still having some very solid attacking options on display. West Brom still has a fighting chance for survival and will be bolstered by some of their performances in recent weeks, and when they clash against a Wolves team that has nothing left to push for in the league, that could be enough for a narrow – and vital – three-point haul.

To Score First: Matheus Pereira

Matheus Pereira’s influence at West Brom continues this season, with the Brazilian winger banging 4-goals and 2-assists in the last four fixtures of the Baggies. He has unquestionably been one of the signings of the season in the Premier League this term and now sits on 9-goals and 5-assists in the league, and 10-goals across all competitions. He is exactly the type of player West Brom would hope to build around in the long-term if they can manage to avoid the drop, and precisely what they will need to crack through a potentially stubborn Wolves defence on Monday. Should his performance levels carry over, don’t be shocked if he hits double-digits for his league goal tally and helps West Brom get just a little closer to the light at the end of the tunnel.

West Brom vs Wolves: Match preview

West Brom was nearly there when they clashed with Aston Villa last weekend, but a last-gasp equaliser from Keinan Davis – his first-ever Premier League goal – robbed the Baggies of a vital three-point haul that would have seen them level on points with Newcastle United coming into their clash with Wolves at The Hawthorns.

It was a sucker punch of the highest order, a result that sees West Brom 11-points adrift of safety, but a Newcastle lost to Arsenal on Sunday provides the slightest glimmer of hope for Sam Allardyce. A win closes the gap to 8-points with four matches still on the docket, and Big Sam remains defiant about his future at the club while stating his intentions to not step down from his post unless he was sacked by the club brass. There have been signs of improvement on the pitch during the second half of the 2020-21 campaign, and though as it stands the Baggies have only registered three more points (14) post the mid-way point than they accrued in the first-19 fixtures (11), there is enough time for results to show enough progress moving forward.

Whether or not progress will continue under Allardyce remains to be seen, and much of the same can be said about the clubs’ ability to hold on to their better players the likes of Matheus Pereira. But if enough is shown by all involved during a very difficult run-in to the final day of the season that includes clashes with Arsenal, Liverpool, West Ham United, and Leeds United, perhaps Allardyce will be given the chance to pull the Baggies from the mire and back into the Premier League after next season.

Wolves must change if they are to avoid Premier League pitfalls

There is something to be said about the use of and reliance on continuity when it comes to hoping you can build something sustainable in football. We have seen it work before as well when both Burnley and Sheffield United have overachieved with top-half finishes in the not-so-distant past, with Burnley even getting into the Europa League after finishing 7th in the Premier League in 2017-18. But both the Clarets and the Blades have since collapsed down the table. Sheffield United has been consigned to relegation this season, while Burnley is down in 16th, though likely safe from the drop for now. If they are not careful, Wolves may suffer a similar fate unless changes are made at the Molineux.

After winning promotion back to the Premier League for the 2018-19 season, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men finished 7th for two seasons running and even made it all the way to the quarterfinals of the Europa League in 2019-20, narrowly falling to eventual winners Sevilla 1-0 on aggregate over two-legs. All signs pointed to a storyboard dream manifesting itself in reality, but Espirito Santo has been brought back down to earth in 2020-21, where they currently sit 12th with a match in hand, but in all likelihood will be finishing in the bottom half come the end of term.

That same continuity that produced such memorable seasons for the club since the return to the English top-flight has been the chief architect of their downfall. A thin squad that has not needed to be rotated heavily in previous years was ravaged by injuries to key men at multiple parts of the season, including influential Mexican international centre-forward Raúl Jiménez. The sale of talisman Diogo Jota did Wolves no favours either, but everything that has transpired against the club this term has pointed to the absolute necessity that change needs to happen if they are to get back on track next term. More progressive football needs to be championed from the touchline, and the clubs’ willingness to spend in the market needs to be re-tasked to making sure Wolves can withstand the rigours of the long English footballing calendar. A down year is hardly something to panic about, but if Wolves plan on being in the Premier League for the long haul, they need to start acting the part.

West Brom team news vs Wolves

Sam Allardyce only has minimal concerns regarding the integrity of his squad when West Brom hosts Wolves at The Hawthorns.

Branislav Ivanović remains out through injury, while Robert Snodgrass is listed as a doubt for selection as things stand.

There may be little incentive for Allardyce to make any changes to the team that fought to a 1-1- draw at Aston Villa last weekend.

Wolves team news vs West Brom

Nuno Espirito Santo gave no specific details as to who was unavailable for Wolves, so some assumptions are to be made regarding who the Portuguese manager will be without.

As it stood previously, Raúl Jiménez, Pedro Neto, and Jonny were all out of contention.

João Moutinho and Marçal are assumed doubts for selection as well as it stands, though Moutinho could make it back in time to feature from the start.
