Wolves vs West Brom Prediction & Match Preview


Wolves vs West Brom
England Premier League
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-Off at 12.30 UK
Venue: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton.


After failing to win the previous five league fixtures, Wolverhampton will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they host WBA at their Molineux Stadium.

The Wolves continue to miss injured attacker Raul Jimenez, but given WBA’s poor displays in the first half of the season, Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s football game.

Jonny, Marcal, and Podence remain in the recovery room as well, while Willy Boly is a major doubt.

The Baggies have been struggling under new boss Sam Allardyce, with the team suffering heavy defeats to Leeds United (0-5) and Arsenal (0-4) in the Premier League, while losing to Blackpool in the FA Cup at the weekend.

Since WBA are low on confidence ahead of the West Midlands derby, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.

Both Grant and Townsend are sidelined through injuries, while Robson-Kanu will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
