LIVE: West Brom vs Southampton – Mbaye Diagne’s early header is RULED OUT following VAR review as Baggies look to build on big win at Chelsea
After pulling off the shock of the season West Brom return to action knowing anything less than three points will not be good enough.
Sam Allardyce’s Baggies shocked the football world with their rousing 5-2 victory over high-flying Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, sparking talk that perhaps the great escape really could be on after all.
They sit 11 points from safety, though have played a game fewer than Newcastle and two fewer than nearest rivals Fulham. Southampton, meanwhile, can jump up to 12th in the table if they take the spoils from the Midlands this evening.
