West Brom – Southampton is an intriguing clash on Monday (start time 1 p.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) because the Baggies must do everything they can to win their battle against relegation.
Sam Allardyce’s side caused a huge shock when they won at Chelsea last weekend, but they are still in second place and need a lot more wins to save themselves from relegation. But if they can beat the Saints, they’ll give themselves a big chance going into the last seven games. With Matheus Pereira, Callum Robinson and Mbaye Diagne in great shape, Allardyce’s squad hope to be close to peaking at the perfect time of the season.
As for Southampton, they came back 2-0 last time to beat Burnley 3-2 and Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have a big week ahead. A win over West Brom would almost secure their Premier League status for another season, as they would then face Leicester City at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final. After injuries derailed their top six, Danny Ings and Theo Walcott are back and they look dangerous on offense again. This should lead to an entertaining clash at the Hawthorns.
Here’s everything you need to know before West Brom – Southampton.
