Southampton vs West Brom Preview: How to Watch on TV, Live Stream, Kick Off Time & Team News

West Brom head to Southampton on Sunday afternoon in their search for their first Premier League win of the season.

Having been tipped by many as outsiders for a top-half finish, Southampton have endured a tough start to the campaign. After being dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Championship side Brentford, Ralph Hasenhuttl's men finally recorded their first points of the season last time out at Burnley.

It's been a dismal start to life back in the top tier for Slaven Bilic's side. Eleven goals conceded in their opening three games, although a point at home to Chelsea did at least lift them from the foot of the table.

Here's 90min's preview of the upcoming clash.

Team News

Southampton's Nathan Redmond is available for selection having recovered from an ankle knock which saw him miss the Saints' last two league outings.

Hasenhuttl has no fresh injury concerns though he has confirmed summer signing Mohammed Salisu won't feature for another couple of weeks as he continues to work on his fitness.

For the visitors Bilic has confirmed that Branislav Ivanovic, Ahmed Hegazi, Filip Krovinović and Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher all took part in a behind-closed-doors friendly against MK Dons in the week in a bid to regain fitness. The West Brom boss confirmed Gallagher is ready to be named in the squad, though the other three remain a doubt.

Predicted Lineups

Southampton: McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Vestergaard, Bednarek, Bertrand; Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Djenepo; Ings, Adams

West Brom: Johnstone; Ajayi, Bartley, O'Shea; Furlong, Sawyers, Livermore, Townsend; Pereira, Robinson, Diangana

Recent Form

Neither side has enjoyed the start to the season they would have hoped. Having finished last season strongly the Saints would have been keen to kick on this campaign, yet back-to-back league defeats and a Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Brentford were far from ideal.

However, victory at Turf Moor last time out and the form of Danny Ings have given Southampton fans reason to be cheerful.

The Baggies' task is already looking ominous. Eleven goals conceded from three league games is a shocking statistic, though on the flip side eight goals scored shows they've got the firepower to cause teams problems.

Here's how each side has fared in their last five games in all competitions.


Burnley 0-1 Southampton (26/9)
Southampton 2-5 Tottenham (20/9)
Southampton 0-2 Brentford (16/9)
Crystal Palace 1-0 Southampton (12/9)
Southampton 3-1 Sheffield United (26/7)

West Brom

West Brom 3-3 Chelsea (26/9)
West Brom 2-2 (4-5) Brentford (22/9)
Everton 5-2 West Brom (19/9)
West Brom 3-0 Harrogate Town (16/9)
West Brom 0-3 Leicester City (13/9)


Both these sides have proven they know where the net is but have also shown defensive vulnerability at times.

The Baggies need to shore up at the back if they're to have any chance of survival, and with Ings looking as sharp as ever they could be in for a tough afternoon.

Prediction: Southampton 2-1 West Brom
