When appointing Carlos Corberán As the new head coach, optimism was understandably on the rise at West Bromwich Albion ahead of their encounter with an out-of-form Sheffield United side on Saturday afternoon.

However, West Brom underperformed again, finding themselves trailing 2-0 at the break and unable to recover as the Blades ensured their hosts remained on two wins from 17 league games in 2022-23.

Although the Baggies are expected to eventually come out of trouble, they are now in last place and up to five points behind 20th-placed Wigan Athletic, an indication they could be cut adrift if they continue to fight for victories. .

While West Brom have conceded no more than twice in any of their last six outings, there is a lack of peak and balance in their performances, and facing an in-form Blackpool side is arguably came at the wrong time.

The West Midlands side have also been winless at The Hawthorns since August 20, a streak which has now been extended to six matches.

Blackpool have recently transformed into one of the most entertaining sides in the second tier, which isn’t necessarily intentional given the pressure to get away from the bottom three.

Nevertheless, at a time when their last five matches have featured 23 goals, the Seasiders have also collected 10 points from a possible 15, putting the club in 15th position in the table.

Their latest success came at Coventry, with Blackpool overturning a half-time deficit to win 2-1 thanks to goals from Gary Madine and jerry yates.

At one point, Michael Appleton will want to see his side improve from a span of just four clean sheets in 17 matches, but that may not be seen as imperative in their next game as they try to continue producing the formula that led to Watford winning , Preston North End and the blues of the sky.

Corberan will inevitably make changes to his West Brom starting line-up with John Swift among the players claiming a recall.

Either Swift or Jayson Molumby should enter the midfield, while Brandon Thomas-Asante seems to be in line to return to the center of the attack.

Martin Kelly remained as an unused substitute against Sheffield United but could be given the nod to one of the bottom three positions.

Appleton made no substitutions in Blackpool’s win at Coventry and no injuries can lead to an unchanged squad.

Dominique Thompson and Theo Corbeanu are alternatives at left-back and down the flank if Appleton wishes to freshen up his team.

Possible West Bromwich Albion starting line-up:
Palm ; Kelly, O’Shea, Pieters; Furlong, Molumby, Gardner-Hickman, Townsend; Diangana, Wallace; Thomas Asante

Possible starting line-up for Blackpool:
Maxwell; Connolly, Ekpiteta, Thorniley, husband; Carey, Dougall, Patino; Yates, Madine, Hamilton

We say: West Bromwich Albion 1-2 Blackpool

In front of a home crowd for the second time in a row, Corberan knows he is under pressure to deliver a result. However, Blackpool are playing with a freedom that makes them a threat to anyone in the division, leading us to predict a narrow victory for the visitors.

27 fan photos of Blackpool’s glorious derby win over Preston North End

Only two second-tier sides have been involved in games with more goals than the Seasiders so far this season – Bristol City and Hull City.

There have been 51 goals in Robins’ 17 games so far this season. It’s the same number for Hull, although they have played one less game.

There have been 46 goals involved in Blackpool’s 16 league games so far this season, averaging 2.875 goals per game.

Only 26 goals have been involved in Coventry City’s games, but they have played four less than Preston due to their pitch problems earlier in the season.

CJ Hamilton and the Seasiders were at their best on Saturday

The weekend’s 4-2 win over Preston means they have been involved in four six-goal thrillers this season.

Ryan Lowe’s men had conceded just 10 times before their trip to the seaside, but their supposedly rock-solid defense was no match for Appleton’s ruthless men.

This means that 28.57% of the goals conceded by PNE this season have been scored by Blackpool.

Oddly, because Preston’s second goal was scored as an own goal, Callum Connolly has assisted in nine per cent of their goals scored this season.

In Blackpool’s last four games alone, 20 goals have been scored and conceded.

Only seven second-tier teams have scored more than Blackpool this season, but by the same token only Bristol City and Hull have scored more goals.

Involved in matches with the most goals (goals for and goals against)

City of Bristol – 51 (25+26)

Sheffield United – 42 (26+16)

City of Norwich – 41 (23+18)

Sunderland – 41 (21+20)

Middlebrough – 40 (19+21)

Hudderfield – 38 (16+22)

Birmingham- 31 (16+15)
