West Bromwich Albion have endured a difficult campaign so far and are currently in the relegation zone. The home side sacked Slaven Bilic earlier this week and newly-appointed manager Sam Allardyce will want to get his tenure off to a positive start.

Aston Villa are in 11th place in the Premier League standings at the moment and have managed only seven points from their last five games. The Villans were held to a disappointing 0-0 stalemate by Burnley last week and need to bounce back in this game.

West Bromwich Albion may lose by Aston Villa with the 1-3 result, according to Sportskeeda. They said that West Bromwich Albion gave a good account of themselves against Manchester City last weekend and are perfectly capable of pulling off an upset in this fixture. Sam Allardyce is known for his robust set-ups and will want to give Aston Villa a run for their money in this game.

Jack Grealish has been a revelation for Aston Villa this season and is likely to play a pivotal part in this game. Aston Villa have a formidable squad and are the favorites going into this fixture.

Squawka says that scoreline prediction is West Brom 0-1 Aston Villa.

This is the 10th club that has offered Allardyce a permanent role and his task now will be to shore up a West Brom defense that has conceded more goals (26) than any other side in the Premier League this term. They host an Aston Villa team enduring some patchy form following their impressive start to 2020/21. Dean Smith’s men won each of their first four Premier League games of the new campaign but in the seven matches since, have tasted victory just twice, slipping to 11th in the table.

That said, Villa have taken four points from their last two games without conceding a goal, so should make the short trip to the Hawthorns with plenty of confidence.

Highlighted player: Branislav Ivanovic

Over the years Branislav Ivanovic has established himself as one of the best defenders in world football. Bane plays as a center back, but he is capable of playing as a full-back as well. The Serbian defender has been playing for Chelsea since 2008 and he used to play for the likes of Srem, OFK Beograd, and Lokomotiv Moscow in the past as well.

Ivanovic leaves his heart on the field in every single match and that is the main reason why the fans love him. He is known for his aerial ability as well and it has to be noted that he has scored 22 goals for Chelsea since arriving at Stamford Bridge in 2008.

The Serbian footballer has won two Premier League trophies with the Blues, but the Champions League trophy won in 2012 is considered the biggest success of his career. Branislav is married to Natasa, who gave birth to his four children.
