West Brom v Swansea City: Can the Baggies get the better of the Swans at long last?


Bookmark and Share

What a few weeks it has been for Swansea City fans. First they celebrated their centenary in style with a record win over Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final, now their manager Michael Laudrup has signed an extension to his contract at the Liberty Stadium - keeping him there until 2015. But can they keep the good news coming with victory over West Brom this afternoon?

The Baggies and Swansea start the day level on points and the victors of today's clash will jump above Liverpool into seventh place as the Reds take on Spurs at Anfield on Sunday. That is some achievement with 10 games left to play, but one that both sides thoroughly deserve.

West Brom went down 3-1 at the Liberty back in November and are still awaiting their first Premier League win over the Swans. Infact you have to go back to 1993, when they were both playing in League Two, for the last time the Baggies beat Swansea at home in league action.

Swansea are definitely the team in form going into this game. They have lost only two of their past 10 outings, while West Brom have won only three times during the same period, but they will welcome back Romelu Lukaku this afternoon after being forced to miss last weekend's defeat at Chelsea.

The one thing I can guarantee people here is that this will be a great game to watch. Both sides like to play football on the deck and there should be plenty of goalmouth action to keep both sets of fans entertained. But who will come out on top?

West Brom v Swansea City; Kick Off 3pm March 10 2013
