Middlesbrough are expected to go well this season with most bookmakers having them as third favourites behind relegated duo Norwich and Watford. The Teesiders finished seventh last season just missing out on the play-offs.
Chris Wilder is the man in the dugout and he has experience of promotion from this division having got Sheffield United out of this league. Djed Spence is the biggest name out of the door while incomings include laon deals for Ryan Giles and Zack Steffan and the signing of Darragh Lenihan from Blackburn.
West Brom are also expected to go well this season and they are the fourth favourites for the title. The Baggies had a disappointing campaign last time out finishing down in tenth spot after their relegation from the Premier League.
Steve Bruce is an experienced hand at this level but he will have to work to win around the Hawthorns fans after a disappointing start to life under him. Their transfer work has been impressive bringing in creative talent in Jed Wallace and John Swift who have excellent records at this level.

Middlesbrough vs West Brom match stats
With the creative forces of Jed Wallace and John Swift behind him and the way his strike partner Daryl Dike can hold up the ball then this could be a big scoring season for Karlan Grant. The West Brom front-man got 18 goals in the last campaign and he looks value to net at least once here.
Isaiah Jones is an important outlet for Middlesbrough as a wing-back and he recorded nine assists last season. Sky Bet have enhanced his odds to 6/1 to register 1+ assist in this fixture and that looks worth an interest.
