It’s now or never for West Brom as they try and get out of the relegation zone on Sunday against Aston Villa.
Aston Villa has shown a lot of improvement this season, holding an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa League. However, they’ve seen a bit of a dip in form over the past two months as they’ve been without their captain and best player, Jack Grealish. They will once again be without him on Sunday, so we’ll see if Aston Villa can cope without him on the field.
West Brom is in dire straights after losing 3-0 to Leicester on Thursday. The Baggies are nine points from safety with only six matches left in the season. So, this match on Sunday is an absolute must win for Sam Allardyce’s men if they want to have any hope at survival.
Even without Grealish in the lineup, I think Aston Villa are severely undervalued at home. West Brom is in desperation mode, which is being reflected in this line, but they are one of the worst Premier League teams of the past decade and should be much bigger underdogs considering the last time they faced Aston Villa they created only 0.03 xG total for the match.
