West Bromwich Albion face Stoke City Saturday afternoon in the Premier League and despite it being two teams in form facing each other there’s only one talking point. Saido Berahino. The former Albion striker made the trip across the Midlands as he joined Stoke in a £12 million deal during the January transfer window. The youngster ended his turbulent spell at The Hawthorns and could be set to make his first Stoke start the weekend. He made his debut coming off the bench against Everton midweek.
Just one place separates the two sides in the league with the Baggies just above in eighth place. Both sides will be looking for the three points to keep pace with seventh-placed Everton. Expect a close match, similar to the previous meeting between to the two sides which ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to Salomon Rondon’s injury time equaliser.
