West Brom 2014/15 Premier League fixtures confirmed

West Brom

West Brom's tough end to the season means it is imperative they get points on board early on in the campaign.

West Bromwich Albion will start their 2014/15 Premier League campaign by playing host to Sunderland.

The Baggies were disappointing last season, narrowly avoiding relegation, and they will be keen to ensure that they finish higher up the table this year.

However, there is a sense of frustration around the club, with the untested Alan Irvine appointed as new boss for upcoming season.

If he is to win the fans over he will the will be keen to get off to a good start and that could be imperative if West Brom are to remain in the Premier League for the 2015/16 campaign.

After welcoming Sunderland they play Southampton (23rd) and Swansea (30th) away during August, and will need to be taking points right from the off if they are to put distance between them and the drop-zone by the end of the season.

Baggies will be keen to be well clear of the relegation zone long before the season closes, as their final month looks particularly tough.

They have to play Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Chelsea and Arsenal in their final five fixtures meaning their opportunities for points look limited towards the back-end of the campaign.

It is a similar scenario to the one that Norwich City faced last season, when they were relegated, after leaving themselves with too much to do when facing the stronger sides in the closing stages.

This is something West Brom must avoid and they will, therefore, have to pick up points against the lesser sides earlier on in the season.

West Brom’s full fixture list for the 2014/15 campaign can be seen below.
