Hot Tip – Under 2.5 Goals

  • Five of the last seven league meetings between these two clubs have produced under 2.5 goals.
  • Four of Norwich's last five outings in the Championship have witnessed fewer than three goals.

Another reason that we have backed under 2.5 goals as our main prediction for this game is that four of West Brom's last six matches have produced under 2.5 goals.

Norwich vs West Brom team news

Norwich

Norwich were in good form in their last league game away at Hull City. A goal from Jon Rowe saw the Canaries head in at the break 1-0 up and two minutes from the end of the match, Christian Fassnacht made it 2-0. Hull pulled a goal back in stoppage time but Norwich held on to claim the away win.

Jakob Sörensen is the main injury concern for the home side this weekend with the midfielder expected back from a groin strain later this month.

Predicted Lineup: Gunn (GK), Duffy, Giannoulis, Stacey, McLean, Sara, Núñez, Barnes, Sargent, Sainz & Rowe 

West Brom

West Brom thrashed Blackburn Rovers at The Hawthorns last weekend. Young midfielder Tom Fellows opened the scoring in the eleventh minute and that was followed up by a Brandon Thomas-Asante effort on the half-hour mark. An own goal saw West Brom head in at the interval three goals to the good and although Blackburn pulled a goal back in the sixtieth minute, Thomas-Asante was on hand to restore their three-goal lead shortly after and the game ended 4-1 to West Brom.

Semi Ajayi and Grady Diangana are both playing at AFCON 2023, while Matt Phillips and Josh Maja look set to miss out this weekend due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Palmer (GK), Bartley, Townsend, Furlong, Kipré, Yokuşlu, Reach, Swift, Mowatt, Fellows & Thomas-Asante

Player to Watch: Gabriel Sara

Norwich's Brazilian star Gabriel Sara has been one of their top performers this season.

The former Sao Paulo man has chipped in with five league goals so far and is just two away from equaling his record of last season. However, it is from a creative point that Sara has really shined, setting up eight goals in the Championship, making him one of the most creative players in the division.

We're backing Sara to put in another good performance this weekend against a tough West Brom side that arrive at Carrow Road as the bookmakers' favourite to win.
