The question on the mind of West Brom fans is if they can beat the drop in the Premier League this season after the big win over fellow relegation candidates Brighton and Hove Albion at the weekend. West Brom were 11 points adrift of safety with 13 games to play in the league before the weekend’s set of games but they have been able to give themselves a fighting chance of staying up after the slim and fortunate victory over the Seagulls on Saturday. The win ensured that the Baggies are now nine points off the safety mark in the Premier League.
The win over Brighton and Hove Albion was a nervy one for West Brom fans as the players fought for the three points to ensure that new manager Sam Allardyce recorded his first victory since taking charge of the team towards the end of last year. Sam Allardyce replaced SlavenBilic as the West Brom shortly after the Croatian tactician led the Baggies to a 1-1 draw at the home of Manchester City, the current Premier League leaders.

West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilic has said that the club’s recent victory over Sheffield United is worth more than three points and can be considered as a six-pointer. The Baggies and Blades were eyeing their maiden Premier League win of the season on Sunday and the former prevailed with a slender 1-0 victory at the Hawthorns.
On-loan Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher made the difference for the Baggies with a 13th-minute goal and that was sufficient to give them the elusive win. However, the result could have different on another day, given Rhian Brewster and Lys Mousset were guilty of squandering golden chances to put Sheffield level in stoppage time.
