Albion’s Premier League Season Comparison – 1 game

Albion’s return to the Premier League shone brightly before being snuffed out comprehensively as the visitors scored three second half goals.

It is the seventh time that the Baggies have opened a Premier League season with a defeat, the fourth time at the Hawthorns. If you are looking for positive omens, on none of the four occasions in which Albion have lost on the opening day at home have they gone on to be relegated!
