Arguably West Brom’s best bit of business this summer is keeping hold of Saido Berahino (so far). The Baggies have strengthened their squad in all areas of the pitch, bringing in five new players and looking to add even more. Rickie Lambert was horribly mismanaged in his season at Anfield, and given a run in the first team could rediscover the form which earned him his dream move. The England striker joins a strikeforce who all have the ability to reach double figures, alongside Berahino, Brown Ideye and Victor Anichebe. The strikers won’t be short for chances, with James McClean and Serge Gnabry (who’s mucked up these previews by leaving Arsenal after I tipped him to breakthrough there) joining Stephan Sessegnon, Callum McManaman and Chris Brunt in being the creative force for Pulis’ side. James Chester has joined in defence, but whether a relegated centre back will do more than boost the numbers of the defence. Although they may not improve on last year’s position, West Brom will pick up more points and be closer to the top half of the table.
Key Player: Saido Berahino
One to Watch: Rickie Lambert
