Their first meeting ended with a victory of the West Brom. It was their former manager who leads that time, and they took home a 4-0 victory.

Iliman Nadiaye, Sander Berge, and Oliver Norwood will surely produce points for their team. However, bad news for the fans of the Blades, Jack O’Connell, Jack Robinson, Chris Basham, Enda Stevens, Tommy Doyle, and Oli McBurnie will not suit up in this match.
