West Bromwich Albion will take on Charlton Athletic at The Valley on Sunday afternoon in the third round of the FA Cup.
The last time these two teams met was at The Hawthorns, where it controversially ended 2-2 after Charlton were awarded a last minute penalty.
This is an ideal chance though for sides to rest some key players, just coming off the back of a hectic festive period and Baggies boss Slaven Bilic is expected to do so.
Albion will be looking for their first win in four games and their could be no better way to end that run against a Charlton side that has been bemoaned with injuries throughout the season.
For team news, Kieran Gibbs is likely to miss the tie after limping off early on against Leeds with another hamstring injury. Grady Diangana will not be risked but is in line to return when the two teams meet again in league action the following week as he continues his recovery from a back injury and provided he is not recalled from his parent club West Ham during this month. Nathan Ferguson will also miss this game with a knee injury.
Here’s how we think WBA will line up on Sunday:
GK: Jonathan Bond
Only start this season was in the Carabao Cup defeat to Millwall. Bond started all of Albion’s cup encounters last season and is likely to do so once more this season.
RB: Darnell Furlong
With Ferguson out, Furlong is the Baggies only recognised right back so he should start.
CB: Dara O'Shea
Was impressive when he came on against Brentford recently and he should be given the opportunity to impress again as Ajayi and Bartley are likely to be rested.
CB: Ahmed Hegazi
Played two games in three days before being rested against Leeds. Should come back into the fold having impressed against Barnsley and Boro.
LB: Conor Townsend
Played the majority of the draw with Leeds and was effective when introduced. At the moment, with Gibbs’s injury, Townsend is the only left back available for this game so he will surely start.
CM: Romaine Sawyers
Will have more energy than Livermore due to him having a rest recently against Boro. Sawyers will provide the composure needed in a scrappy battle at The Valley.
CM: Chris Brunt (C)
Linked with a move to Stoke this month, so this could well be Brunt’s final game for the club. Will surely be given a runout in the cup as he hasn’t featured much so far this season.
CAM: Filip Krovinovic
Started against Leeds due to Diangana being unavailable. Should be switched into his favoured central role as Pereira is likely to be rested.
RW: Matt Phillips
Phillips will be looking to put things right after spurning a glorious chance against Leeds last Wednesday. Should start after being taken off early in that game also.
LW: Chris Willock
Willock simply has to be given a chance this game if he is to continue with this club beyond January. Has not been used so far this season and this could be the perfect opportunity to show why Albion need him.
ST: Kenneth Zohore
Came on late against Leeds and provided a fresh source of energy and a willingness to get the winning goal. Zohore hasn’t been used a lot this season and a cup game will be good for him to get some minutes under his belt.
