Match Preview

The rest of the sides at the bottom of the table have done the manager shuffle. They’ve brought in tried and tested names in order to try and save their season. Some clubs have yielded positive results, others not so much. Swansea have stuck with Paul Clement but that decision has seen them slip to the bottom of the table. They’ve collected just 9 points from the opening 15 fixtures and a lack of  goals has been a clear problem. They’ve lost 4 out of the last 5 league games and have managed just 1 goal in those fixtures.  The single draw was a point against Bournemouth losing to Burnley, Chelsea, Stoke and Brighton. At home they’ve collected just 4 points with 1 win and 1 draw. Those games have seen them score just 4 goals with 10 conceded. They’ve failed to score in 4 out of 7 home fixtures with just 2 clean sheets. There have been just 18 goals in 15 league games, showing how defensively tight they like to keep it, unfortunately you need to be able to score to pick up more than a single point. West Brom have sacked Pulis and brought in Pardew. It seemed a strange decision but the manager carried on a run of draws keeping them out of the relegation places. They are 17th in the table on 13 points, just 3 above Palace who sit 1 place below them. They are unbeaten in 3, picking up 3 consecutive draws, but they’ve failed to win in the last 5 games. They are missing Chadli, Dawson and Brunt for this fixture which wont make it any easier. Away from home they have won 1 game and drawn twice, losing the other 4. They’ve managed just 3 away goals and have conceded 9 on the road. Games average under 2 goals with 1 clean sheets and failing to score on 3 occasions. Neither manager can afford to lose this fixture and both sides are goal shy, once again defences are expected to be on top and a bore draw seems likely.
