Paul Clement is wary of West Brom’s attacking threats ahead of the Baggies’ trip to Swansea City this weekend.

Albion arrive in Wales having failed to win a Premier League game since August.

Like the Swans, they have struggled for goals and victories so far this season.

Nevertheless, Clement reckons Alan Pardew’s side have players who can hurt the Swans.

“I think we will see a more attacking West Brom line-up this weekend than maybe we ould have done under their previous manager (Tony Pulis),” said the Swans boss.

“They started off the season so well, with two wins, then like us they have had a disappointing run.

“They are lacking confidence and lacking goals.

“But they have still got a lot of attacking threats in their team and, with a new manager in Alan Pardew, they could be very dangerous.”

West Brom are likely to be without Nacer Chadli through injury this weekend, while Matt Phillips is also a concern.

But Pardew can call on the likes of Salomon Rondon, Jay Rodriguez and Hal Robson-Kanu.
