After Albion came back yet again from being a goal down to earn a draw against Reading in mid-week, the Baggies return to Championship action when we take on Derby County at Pride Park in the lunch-time kick off on Saturday.
After a relieving point was gained mid-week through Kenneth Zohore’s late penalty, it meant that we are still unbeaten in the league, winning two and drawing two from our opening four league games.
The record however will be under threat again as we face a stern test from the Rams who will be looking for promotion to the Premier League after narrowly missing out in last years Play-Off Final.
Derby will not be heading into this game with a lot of confidence though as they tasted defeat for the first time in the league after a 2-1 home defeat to Bristol City.
Could the impact the substitutes made on Wednesday night force Baggies boss Slaven Bilic into making changes?
Here’s how we think West Brom will line up tomorrow:
GK: Sam Johnstone
Faced unfair criticism recently. Couldn’t do much about Ovie Ejaria’s strike mid-week. Expected to start.
rb: Darnell Furlong
One of the best performers mid-week showing great attacking quality. Would like to see him start again.
cb: Semi Ajayi
Struggled in the first half but improved in the second mid-week. Expect him to start again.
cb: Kyle Bartley
Another solid performance against Reading. Should start again with the continued absence of Ahmed Hegazi.
lb: Kieran Gibbs
Arguably the best left-back in the league. I expect him to start again.
cm: Jake Livermore
Mainly at fault for the goal conceded midweek by not closing down but the rest of his performance was very solid. Should start again.
cm: Romaine Sawyers
Sawyers had an off-night against Reading and for me was playing far too deep to effect the game but he is expected to start once more.
cm: Filip Krovinovic
Linked up with Matheus Pereira very well in the second half against the Royals and won the penalty to earn us a draw. Another start is likely.
rw: Matheus Pereira
Came on in the second half and made a good impact showing cutting edge passing that was lacked throughout the game and supplied the ball which led to the penalty. Would like to see him make his first start.
lw: Kyle Edwards
Another one brought on in the second half and was influential. Edwards could come back in after Diangana’s ineffective midweek performance.
st: Kenneth Zohore
Got his first goal from the penalty spot which will boost his confidence. Very effective compared to Austin mid-week. Slight problem with his calf but expected to be fit and for me, should start.
