West Brom v Southampton: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

The race to join Leicester and Ipswich in the Premier League next season begins on Sunday and West Brom and Southampton will both believe they have what it takes to secure promotion via the playoffs.

Southampton completed a league double over the Baggies in the regular season and they also finished 12 points above them in the standings.

However, the Baggies' fifth-place finish was their best effort since being relegated from the top flight in 2020/21 and in Carlos Coberan they have a tactically astute manager who is sure to have his team well-organised.

Russell Martin’s Southampton favour a possession-based approach and they will be hoping they can starve the Baggies of the ball.
