Opta Stats: West Brom v Wigan

4May 2013

England - Premier League


West Brom have just pride to play for, but will that be enough against a Wigan side in desperate need of a win on Saturday, to preserve their Premier League place?


Both teams have found the net in all four previous Barclays Premier League meetings between West Brom and Wigan at the Hawthorns. You can back both teams to score at 1.65.


Steve Clarke's side have already won more points this season (48) than they have ever managed before in a Premier League campaign. West Brom are 2.46 to add another three on Saturday.


Always assuming three points for a win, the last time the Baggies had more than 48 points after 34 games of a top-flight season was back in 1980/81 (59). West Brom are 4.4 to win to nil.


Wigan had exactly 32 points after 34 games in 2009/10 and finished the season safely in 16th place. They are available at 3.15 to grab a much needed win.


The Latics have scored a higher percentage of goals from corners than any other team in the top-flight this season (26%). Emmerson Boyce scored a header from a corner against Spurs and is available at 11.0 to score on Saturday.


After a run of one defeat in six away league games, Wigan have lost their last two in a row without troubling the scorers. West Brom are 3.85 to keep a clean sheet.


Maynor Figueroa has conceded league-high three penalties this season. The odds of a player being sent off is 5.6.


Just 7% of West Brom's goals this season (three of 46) have come in the opening 15 minutes; a league-low proportion. Wigan are 2.1 to score the first goal.
