West Brom vs Wolves: Predictions

The immediate forecast is looking bleak for West Brom, who are now nine points from safety with just five games to, recently conceding a last-minute goal to draw with Aston Villa which, in that moment, relinquished faint hopes of mounting a ‘great escape’, but Sam Allardyce will be keen to ensure his side keep fighting.

The beauty of football is that anything can happen, and if The Baggies win their remaining games then they will hit the much-coveted 40-point mark for relegation-threatened clubs, but that, of course, is easier said than done, and there’s still the small task of playing Arsenal and Liverpool in that run.

If there is to be a fairytale escape, though, then Allardyce will be looking to win consecutive Black Country derbies, claiming his first win as West Brom boss over Wolves in a five-goal thriller back in January, a result that felt like the West Midlands club could claw themselves away from danger at the time.

For Wolves, their season has been a bit of a damp squib as well, recently losing 4-0 to Burnley, but Nuno Espirito Santo will be eager himself to finish with a flourish and ensure his side push for a top-half finish to generate some momentum heading into next campaign.

West Brom vs Wolves: Match Stats

This being a Black Country derby, tempers and passions are likely to run high regardless of the current landscape for both clubs. Wolves have perhaps been guilty of complacency in recent weeks with little to play for other than pride, while West Brom are teetering on the brink of dropping down.

Rivalries, though, have that magical ability to elevate games and rejuvenate competitive spirit, so tackles are likely to be flying in, and for Ruben Neves, that pattern of play has defined his season, with only Yves Bissouma (88), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (88), Wilfred Ndidi (77) and N’Golo Kante (75) registering more tackles than him (73) in the Premier League this season among midfielders.
