The Hawthorns plays host to a huge bottom-of-the-table clash on Saturday as West Bromwich Albion welcome fellow strugglers Sheffield United in the Premier League.
The Baggies sit second bottom heading in to the encounter with the Blades, yet to win a game this season and with all three of their points coming from draws.
If West Brom’s record makes for grim reading, look away now if you’re a fan of Sheffield United – Chris Wilder’s side are rock bottom of the table and have accrued just a single point in 9 games so far this season.
United are bottom of the behind-closed-doors standings too, having really suffered since fans were banned from entering stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the recent news that some areas will be permitting supporters back in to grounds when the English lockdown is lifted may give some hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel in this difficult spell for the club on the field.
West Brom may feel aggrieved that their first Premier League win of the season didn’t come last time out against Manchester United, where a controversial Bruno Fernandes penalty saw them on the wrong end of the result.
No side has scored fewer goals in the Premier League this season then Sheffield United, although no side has conceded more than West Brom, which makes this already critical encounter even more intriguing.
Hal Robson-Kanu has recovered from a broken leg and is pushing for inclusion for West Brom, with Callum Robinson also available for selection again. Sam Field is the only player missing for Baggies boss Slaven Bilic.
Sheffield United’s injury woes remain, however, with Jack O’Connell still on the sidelines and Ethan Ampadu a doubt after limping off against West Ham.
Enda Stevens is 50-50 to feature after a recent knock, but striker Lys Mousset is expected to be available for Chris Wilder after a spell out.
West Brom v Sheffield United is an 8pm kick off on Saturday 28 November.
