West Bromwich Albion's relegation could be confirmed if they concede a loss against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

West Bromwich Albion are hanging around in the Premier League by a thread as they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to the Hawthorns on Monday. They looked on course to earn a sliver of hope this past week when they took a 2-1 lead into stoppage time against Aston Villa.

However, Keinan Davies restored parity for Aston Villa in the 92nd-minute turning the Baggies' hopes of surviving bleaker. They sit 19th on the Premier League, 11 points behind 17th placed Newcastle United. But they will fancy their chances against Wolverhampton Wanderers, whom they defeated 3-2 in the reverse fixture.

Wolverhampton Wanderers received a proper thrashing at the hands of Burnley last week. Sean Dyche's men beat Wolves 4-0 and Nuno Espirito Santos has claimed his side are facing a number of injury issues.

Wolves have suffered in the absence of their main striker Raul Jimenez and have struggled to mount a challenge for a European spot after a couple of solid seasons in the English top-flight.
