Alan Pardew was welcomed with open arms last time out but despite the expected injection of charisma and excitement, the Baggies were unable to get back to winning ways last time out against Crystal Palace.

Still looking for their first Premier League win since August, West Brom couldn’t have asked for a more attractive away trip next as they travel to south Wales to take on Swansea who are in equally dismal form and struggle to find the net.

Some injury news for the Baggies ahead of this bottom of the table clash and midfielder Gareth Barry has been ruled out, while winger Matt Phillips is expected to return.

Pardew’s side will hopefully offer more going forward than they did under Tony Pulis and here is our predicted XI ahead of the Swansea game.
