Despite holding the mighty Manchester City to a draw their last time out, Norwich have had a woeful season and sit in a terrible run of form ahead of their clash with West Brom, who are riding their own high after defeating the other Manchester team – Manchester United.
The Canaries have only won a single game this entire year, and that was back on January 2. On top of that, there have only been two draws in this run of 12 games without a win which equates to 10 defeats. There must be a bit of a black cloud hanging Carrow road as they prepare to take on West Brom whose form has been far more impressive.
Other than the win against United, West Brom even managed to take points away from the high-flying Leicester. In their last six games, the Baggies have only suffered a single loss. Sitting only one point away from the top 10, just behind Chelsea, it has been a positive season for West Brom and they will be smelling blood against the woeful Canaries.
In the relegation Zone Alex Neil’s men have not been great in front of goal, but defensively it has been even worse.They have let in 60 goals in only 30 games, a feat that is only bettered by basement dwellers Aston Villa.
It does not feel that the Canaries are anywhere near halting their free fall, however, after holding City to a draw, their next couple of games, including this one against West Brom, they face some mid-table teams and would do well to at least get a draw out of this game.
On the other hand, West Brom will not be looking for a draw, and will rather want to exploit the Canaries’ weak defence to add to their goal tally and potentially even overtake Chelsea in 10th.
