The Hawthorns will host a huge relegation six-pointer as Alan Pardew meets his former employers.
West Brom are fourth bottom of the division with 12 points after 14 games. And the Baggies are a team in crisis, having gone 13 matches without a win.
A 3-1 win at Accrington Stanley in the League Cup back in August was the last time they tasted victory.
As for Crystal Palace, Roy Hodgson has begun to steady the ship after an awful start to the season at Selhurst Park.
They held Brighton to a 0-0 draw at the Amex in midweek. That’s the first point Palace have picked up on the road this season.
In their last five games, Palace have one win, three draws and a defeat at Tottenham. That’s a decent foundation for the league’s basement dwellers, but they have to start winning more matches if they plan to beat the drop.
