West Brom faces anxious wait for Evans

12 March 2018

Alan Pardew will take inspiration from opponents Leicester as he looks for a win to kick-start West Brom's Premier League survival bid. It is Albion's seventh straight loss in all competitions and the side remains bottom, eight points from safety.

The challenge for Albion if they do decide to dismiss Pardew, who took over from Tony Pulis at the end of November, is to identify a replacement to steer the club through the final two months of the season before making a long-term appointment in the summer.

The odds of a great escape for the Baggies are slim, and they're even slimmer when Alan Pardew is your manager, but their remaining schedule is set to be one of the most miraculous survivals in Premier League history.

Rondon marked his 100th Premier League appearance in fine style with a well-taken eighth-minute opener but Jamie Vardy's brilliant 21st-minute volley - his fourth in as many visits to The Hawthorns - hauled Claude Puel's men level.

He said: "It's hard". The Foxes are the better team and they will hope that they can win and get their total to 40 points.

Manchester United have won 10 of their last 13 Premier League home games against Liverpool.

"It is that time of year in terms of everyone is now fighting for something".

"The one thing I'm not going to do is what I said on Thursday, is I'm not going to lay down tools", he added.

Pardew is due to hold informal discussions with members of the Albion board tomorrow, but such meetings are regular when the head coach and his bosses are at the training ground together. I am not going to lay down tools because I am saying to the players they have to fight until the end. "I don't care whatever job or workplace you're in, if you're under pressure and you don't want to fight, don't bother turning up".

West Brom need to outscore Leicester and will have to start with an attacking unit. Just six points separates Bournemouth in 12th to 19th-placed Stoke but the rock bottom Baggies are a massive seven points off the Potters following a five-game losing streak.
