West Bromwich – Brighton – This Saturday’s 23rd English Premiership round-up brings us the foul of West Bromwich and 12th Brighton, which currently has seven points of advantage. Otherwise, both teams had routinely won the fourth round of the FA Cup this weekend, but added that their fall finals ended with a 3: 1 home win over Brighton.
Of course, it will only be an additional motive for footballers from the suburbs of Birmingham to try to get their full spoils on their field, especially since they have four points less than the teams that are above the drop zone. However, West Bromwich’s downfall in the dangerous zone was inevitable after the last three defeats and two draws, while it was a very interesting fact that their only two victories in this Premier League season were still at the start of the championship.
That is why they brought a new coach, Pardew, at the end of November but only managed to tie a few ranks in the championship under his baton, while only last weekend at the FA Cup they finally managed to win a win, Exeter’s lower league celebrated with 2: 0. However, this will certainly raise their confidence in this very important duel with Brighton, which would otherwise miss defenders Evans and Gibbs, Morrison midfielder and Phillips and Chadli attackers.
Unlike West Bromwich, the Brighton team this Saturday night is still somewhat more relaxed because they take the 12th place on the table and have three points more than teams from the dangerous zone, and they also tied three unbeaten games. First, they won first in the Premier League at Newcastle and in home match with Bournemouth, and then in the third round FA Cup with a lot of luck and hit in the finals of the match, a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Otherwise, their coach Hughton rested most of the FA’s in the FA Cup, so they should now be fully prepared for the duel with West Bromwich, which is certainly under much pressure given the current state of the table. However, the big problem in Brighton this season is just the outbreak so they would surely meet the Hawthorns, while still needing to add that the Sidwell midfielder was still out of the machine.
