Albion last completed a league double over Villa in the 1973/74 season, when both sides were in the old Division Two. The Baggies claimed a 2-0 win at The Hawthorns on Boxing Day, before winning 3-1 at Villa Park in early March.
In all of the last five games at Villa Park between the two sides, both teams have scored.
Former Villa midfielder Craig Gardner could line up against his former employers. The 28-year-old scored the winner when the two sides met back in December.
The first ever meeting between the two sides came 120 years ago, on Saturday, January 3, 1885. The FA Cup third-round tie ended goalless.
There has not been more than a one-goal margin between the sides in the 17 Premier League meetings so far.
WE SAID, THEY SAID
We said – Tony Pulis: “I understand how big a game this is for everybody, all we are thinking about is getting the three points.”
They said – Ciaran Clark: “We want the three points - and need the three points because of our position in the Premier League.”
