West Brom will hope to extend their lead at the top of the Championship as they welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Hawthorns.
This will be a tough game with Sheffield Wednesday doing relatively well in the league. They’re currently sat in eighth position under Garry Monk.
It will be even more testing for the home side as midfield duo Romaine Sawyers and Jake Livermore are suspended.
Slaven Bilic has a whole selection of midfielders to replace them both and today he has announced that he has made up his mind on who will start on Saturday.
Sheffield Wednesday without a win in their last three games but have picked up points against Leeds and Swansea recently.
Meanwhile, Albion are unbeaten in six games, winning four and drawing two.
Gareth Barry and Kieran Gibbs will be expected to be in the squad for tomorrow’s game but Chris Brunt is a doubt having recently played against Port Vale to gain fitness. Finally, Nathan Ferguson serves the final game of his three-match ban.
Here’s how we think the Baggies will line up:
GK: Sam Johnstone
The club’s number one choice between the sticks and he has shown it with some stunning displays recently.
RB: Darnell Furlong
Furlong has been fantastic so far this season at full back and should be set to start once again.
CB: Ahmed Hegazi
This could be the perfect opportunity for Hegazi to return to the starting line up. Played 90 minutes for Egypt during the international break and will surely be raring to go.
CB: Kyle Bartley (C)
Captaincy is likely to be given to Bartley during Livermore’s absence and he has deserved it recently, putting in some fantastic performances.
LB: Conor Townsend
Despite Kieran Gibbs returning to the squad, Townsend has been very solid during the last couple games and surely deserves another chance.
CM: Semi Ajayi
Played the majority of last season for Rotherham in this position, scoring eight goals in all competitions. Could slot into the midfield nicely and have the opportunity to get forward.
CM: Gareth Barry
It’s great to see Barry fit and ready to play again. Given the suspensions in midfield, Barry could be the main man to slot into the midfield with his excellent vision.
RW: Matt Phillips
Phillips is the Baggies’ top scorer so far this season with six and will hope to add to that with another start likely.
CAM: Matheus Pereira
Pereira has been a revelation so far this season for the Baggies and is the core of Albion’s creativity. Has to start.
LW: Grady Diangana
Not at his best away at Hull two weeks ago but on his day, he can be very effective down the left side and will surely have more of a presence playing at home.
ST: Hal Robson-Kanu
A sensational display at Hull before the break has surely made him the first-choice striker for now and he should be given another opportunity to impress as his confidence flourishes.
