West Bromwich Albion and Stoke both seek to break Premier League ‘ducks’ on Saturday when they respectively host Liverpool and Chelsea.
As you can tell from our detailed table below, West Brom are playing their fifth Premier League season and they have gained at least one point against all 27 opponents they’ve faced with two exceptions: Chelsea and today’s opponents Liverpool. The Baggies have faced each of those teams nine times in the revamped top flight’s history and lost nine times to each.
The club that West Brom have the best record against is Manchester City (in total points terms) and that’s in spite of City’s double over the Baggies this season.
Over at Stoke, so far in almost three Premier League seasons, there are only three teams against whom Stoke have yet to win a single point. One of those is Blackpool (after only one meeting), another is Manchester United (after six), and the third are this weekend’s opponents Chelsea, after five meetings.
