Southampton is hanging around in the top half of the table in ninth with 27 points. No matter what the result is on Saturday, they’ll stay there. They’d still like to collect three points to keep up with the clubs ahead of them.
For West Bromwich Albion, it is assistant Keith Downing’s last game as interim manager.
“It’s exciting times and an appointment that’s gone full circle,” Downing said, via ESPN FC. ”I’m pleased it got settled and there’s someone in place on an 18-month contract, which brings the stability that’s needed.
“It’s been unsettling, particularly in the last week with a lot of rumors flying around. The players try to get on with things and I wasn’t sure if I was focusing on the Southampton game or whether the appointment was going to be made earlier.”
