Of all the sides relegated form the top flight last season, West Brom appear to be the one hunting an immediate return with belief and vigour.
They’ve got a superb array of attacking talent, some great loan players in particular who look set to ensure they remain at the top of the table. Harvey Barnes is showing why he’s such a special talent, whilst Dwight Gayle brings exactly what everyone believed he would; goals.
They’re still susceptible at the back though, Reading breached the defence on Saturday before being swept away and it is there that maybe the Baggies need a new face or two. They have conceded 17 goals, only one fewer than bottom side Hull City.
That figure proves that there’s a route to success in simply outscoring everybody, something that might affect their approach in January. They won’t want to weaken their current squad too much either.
Here’s the perfect double deal for West Brom in January.
