In the fourth round of the 2020/21 Premier League season, West Brom lost to Southampton 0-2 away and missed a good chance to win the league's first victory. Djenepo and Romeu each scored a goal, and Johnstone also made many wonderful saves to ensure that the bloomers would not be defeated.
Bilic made only one personnel adjustment compared to the starter of the last round. Winger Edwards replaced right back Fran. The bloomers changed back to the 4-2-3-1 that was often used in the British championship. O'Shea and Edwards, the pair of youth brothers who rarely played together, led the right. Krovinovic, who had just arrived on the team this week, entered the bench, while Gallagher unexpectedly did not make the list.
The home team quickly took the initiative in the opening game, and Bertrand's shot almost created a dream start. West Brom has also played some offensives under the leadership of Pereira and Deangana, but the threat cannot be compared with the opponent. Johnstone continued to highlight, blocking Ajayi's almost own touch and Adams's follow-up shot. After that, Ince's header in the set kick was also resolved by him. After that, Adams and Armstrong missed the target continuously, until the 41st minute, Djenepo got the ball in the penalty area and then shot low, finally penetrated Johnstone's ten fingers, West Brom fell behind 0-1 to end the first half.
After halftime, Field played, West Brom changed 4-3-2-1. Pereira's consecutive free kicks created a threat, but Deangana's low shot was saved by McCarthy with his foot. Just as the bloomers continued to put pressure on, the Saints played a continuous wave, Armstrong played from the left, Romeu then jumped into the net and West Brom fell behind 0-2. Robson Kanu, who came off the bench, suffered a serious arm injury, which made the thrush's attack line worse. Johnstone saved another set ball that seemed to pass and shoot, but the overall was unable to recover. West Brom lost 0-2 to the South Coast.
半场结束后，菲尔德（Field）上场，西布朗（West Brom）改变4-3-2-1。佩雷拉连续的任意球构成了威胁，但迪安加纳的低射被麦卡锡的脚挽救了。正当灯笼裤继续施加压力时，圣徒队连续不断地挥舞，阿姆斯特朗从左边踢出，罗密欧随后跳入篮网，西布朗队则以0-2落后。替补席上的罗布森·卡努（Robson Kanu）手臂严重受伤，使鹅口疮的攻击线更糟。约翰斯通（Johnstone）挽救了另一个似乎传球和射门的接球，但整体无法恢复。西布朗（West Brom）以2比2输给了南海岸。
