Predicted West Brom and Southampton line-ups: Koeman under pressure

Here are the predicted teams for the match between West Brom and Southampton this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 28th February 2015 at 15:00. Venue: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich

Odds: West Brom 5/2, Draw 23/10, Southampton 7/5

West Bromwich Albion head into their game against Southampton this weekend looking to kick on and show a bit more than they produced in the 0-0 draw against Sunderland last weekend.

The Baggies are five points away from the bottom three and nine points away from the top half of the table, which will be the main aim for manager Tony Pulis over the rest of the season.

West Brom should be confident because the side is on a good run of form having not been beaten in any competition since the home defeat against Tottenham.

Southampton need a big performance and result because they have slipped out of the top four, with Arsenal and Manchester United holding the Champions League places as things stand.

The Saints fell at home against Liverpool in their last game and Ronald Koeman will be busy looking for ways to revitalise his attack.

Southampton have scored just one goal in their last four games, which is a record that simply has to improve in the coming weeks as the team fights to get moving in the right direction again.
