WBA Vs CRY Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: West Brom’s first win of the season places them on the cusp of clawing out of the bottom three.
They needed 10 matches to forage their first win in the 2020-21 edition of the Premier League but West Brom will be just glad that they were finally able to register three points on the board.
Coming across fellow relegation slumped Sheffield United, for West Brom, this was a contest they had to win at any costs. Not only was the side in dire need of snapping a horrendous 9 match winless run but knew a win against Sheffield United would give them much needed leverage over a side they could be embroiled with in the relegation squabble later in the season as well.
And while it wasn’t the most alluring or convincing of displays, West Brom managed to do more than enough to get the job done on the day. The 1-0 triumph puts them within one point of 17th placed Fulham with the side on the anvil of easing its way out of the unsavoury bottom three slots.
WBA Vs CRY Fantasy Probable Winner
Where West Brom finally tasted success in the league, Leicester City on the other hand were handed a stunning 2-1 defeat by Fulham. The side has now been defeated twice in a row, results which threaten to push the side out of the top 4.
Despite their plight, the visitors should manage to win this one owing to West Brom’s defence.

West Brom’s Sam Johnstone has emerged as the player of the season for the side till now. The goal-keeper has been a source of solace for the club’s otherwise dwindling backline with him fortifying his side’s sticks to emerge with a cleansheet the last time around.
They have shipped in goals across their last two defeats but Crystal Palace are in with a real shout of pulling off a cleansheet today. They are up against a West Brom side which has scored on just 7 occasions in the competition and has gone without a goal in three out of its last five matches.
Just the side for Crystal Palace to clobber and record a much yearned for cleansheet against, we have the trio of Gary Cahill, Patrick van Aanholt and Chiekhou Kouyate.
West Brom’s cleansheet the last time around paired with Crystal Palace’s issues when attacking sees a duo make a foray from the club as well. In Kyle Bartley who has the one goal and Darnell Furlong with the one assist, the side has two players who can move in tandem to do the dirty work and close the ball for the side.
The top assist provider for the visitors, Andros Townsend’s two assists make him a viable candidate for the day’s contest with James McArthur completing the duo from the side.
Matheus Pereira has turned into a real prized asset for West Brom this season. He’s contributed the most number of assists at two, a player whose ball handling abilities have served the side fruitfully.
Chelsea’ Conor Gallagher is leaving a real mark at West Brom with his showcasing his credentials with the side’s winning goal the last time around.
Now fit after having recovered from COVID, Crystal Palace’s leading scorer, Wilfred Zaha completes our team for the day.
