FA Cup fifth round
West Brom’s 3-2 win at Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup was followed by league defeats to Manchester City, Southampton and Chelsea but the Baggies can avenge their 3-2 loss to the Saints and reach the last eight of the cup.
Southampton came from behind to record that vital victory in the Premier League survival battle but they may not be as focused on their cup visit to The Hawthorns.
West Brom have pepped up their attack under Alan Pardew while Saints have scored only two goals in three games in this term’s cup competitions.
