In recent weeks, West Brom have been under the media spotlight following the racism storm surrounding Jay Rodriguez regarding a comment he allegedly made to Brighton’s Gaetan Bong, then the club announced they had sacked Chairman John Williams and CEO Martin Goodman, but now attentions are solely focussed on the football again.

Sitting bottom of the Premier League, West Brom will hope that an FA Cup run can take the focus off their dismal league campaign and give the fans a reason to cheer.

Standing in their way between them and a place in the quarter-finals are Southampton who will be confident of picking up a result against the Baggies having beaten them 3-2 just a fortnight ago.

Alan Pardew will likely field a strong team to progress in the competition and here is our Predicted XI.
