After coming from behind to earn a point at the Riverside on Saturday, West Brom will looking to mark their first match of the season at the Hawthorns with a win against another former Premier League side in Watford.
The Baggies had one of the best home records in the division last term, taking just two fewer points than promoted sides Fulham and Bournemouth and will be hoping to continue that home form under Steve Bruce in 2022/23, starting with the Hornets.
Relegated Watford got off to the perfect start back in the Championship, as they beat Sheffield United thanks to a 56th minute strike from Joao Pedro in a game that saw seven yellow cards in total in a tough encounter.
The Hornets are unbeaten in their last three games against Monday’s opponents, but have not won at the Hawthorns since 2016, when they came away from the Midlands with all three points thanks to a first half goal from Ben Watson.

West Brom vs Watford match stats
Jed Wallace has been one of the most creative players in the Championship in recent seasons, providing 12 or more assists in two of the last three campaigns and creating 278 chances across his last three full seasons. A trend that continued on the midfielder’s debut for his new side West Brom, creating three chances and providing an assist for John Swift in what was the Baggies only goal of the game against Middlesbrough.
Watford have an incredible lot of firepower for the Championship this term, even after the departure of Cucho Hernandez to MLS. Joao Pedro, Ismaila Sarr and Emmanuel Dennis is a front three that would put the fear into any defender in the division, which showed in the opening game of the season as Ismaila Sarr and Joao Pedro combined for the Hornets’ winner against Sheffield United. The three were directly involved in 27 Premier league goals between them last season and will all be hoping to hit double figures for goal involvements this term.
