      Tip Reasoning

      This clash at the Hawthorns is huge for the promotion race, as two of the top four sides clash. Norwich City have hit a poor run, which has put their place in the top two at risk. They come here aiming to return to form after losing the brilliant momentum that took them into the promotion places. They had led the way at the top for a while, but now sides are putting pressure on them. Sheffield United will have a keen eye on this one, as the Blades look to leap from third to second with help from West Brom.

      The hosts are in the race for second themselves, as they sit just three points shy of Norwich. They could jump above the Canaries with a victory, which is good news for us. This week we picked out West Brom as the side to watch in the race for the Premier League. The Baggies have a lot going for them, especially given their high scoring nature. They showed that they can grind out games too, after Saturday’s 1-0 win over Wigan in the FA Cup. Another result like that – regardless of how dull the display – would be huge for the Hawthorns faithful.

      Norwich had put themselves in the mix as surprise title contenders with a great run, after winning just one of their opening six games. Their return to shape after that saw them lose once in 19 matches, but things have taken a turn. They’ve failed to win in their last four games, with League One Portsmouth getting a 1-0 win at Carrow Road in the FA Cup at the weekend. They’re also without a win in three Championship games too, which leaves them vulnerable ahead of this huge game.

      Another boost for West Brom is that Norwich have struggled against the top sides in the league of late. Their poor recent run includes a 3-3 draw at home to Nottingham Forest and a 4-3 loss at Carrow Road against Derby. They’ve shipped too many goals against top sides, now they meet the league’s top scorers. That doesn’t bode well for the visitors, who have failed to win three of their last four trips.

      Meanwhile, WBA have the second-best home record in the division, which has seen them thump Leeds 4-1 here this term. They’ve also claimed wins at Norwich and Sheffield United, beating the Canaries 4-3 earlier this term. Of the visitors’ five defeats so far, four have come against sides in the top six. We see the Baggies adding to a run of two wins in three meetings with Norwich, so we’re backing them to sweep up the points here.
