West Brom will look to kick on and make it back-to-back wins when they take on a struggling Hull City side at The Hawthorns.
The Baggies will be brimming with confidence as they managed to pick up their first win since the restart when they beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-0.
There’s much to play for at both ends of the table with Albion looking to extend their lead in the automatic promotion places, as they currently hold a five-point lead over Brentford in third place.
Hull City currently sit in 19th place on 45 points and eased their relegation fears by picking up a late 2-1 win over Middlesbrough on Thursday evening and will be looking to add to their total and spring an upset against Slaven Bilic’s men.
For team news, West Brom have a fully fit squad to choose from with Jake Livermore recovering from a minor injury that saw him sit on the bench on Wednesday night.
Here’s how we think WBA will line up:
GK: Sam Johnstone
Albion’s number one kept another clean sheet in midweek and should be in between the sticks again.
RB: Dara O'Shea
O’Shea put in a such a composed, matured performance on Wednesday containing the lively Kadeem Harris. Deserves to keep his place in the side.
CB: Semi Ajayi
Ajayi was benched midweek and brought on for the final few minutes of midweeks win. Should come back in to the side for this important clash.
CB: Kyle Bartley
Bartley was solid in his first game back since the restart. With Hegazi playing three gruelling games, I can see the Egyptian being rested, which will give Bartley another start.
LB: Kieran Gibbs
Gibbs was outstanding against Sheffield Wednesday grabbing an assist with a superb cross. Should start again.
CM: Jake Livermore (C)
Livermore, like Ajayi was rested in midweek and brought on for the final few minutes to see the game out. The club captain should come back into the side to face his former club.
CM: Romaine Sawyers
Sawyers was much better in midweek compared to his performance against Brentford. Should keep his place in the team to continue his partnership with Livermore.
CAM: Matheus Pereira
Pereira was outstanding in the second half on Wednesday night netting a brace with a brilliant header and a close range effort. Surely set to start again.
RW: Kamil Grosicki
Grosicki came on for 20 minutes in midweek and certainly made the most of it, notching an assist and coming close to getting on the scoresheet. Needs more minutes in the team and I would like to see him start against his former side.
LW: Callum Robinson
Robinson too came off the bench midweek and made a positive impact, playing a large part in the second goal. With Grady Diangana still rusty after the first three games, I can see the Sheffield United loanee deputising for him.
ST: Charlie Austin
Austin started on Wednesday evening and got the confidence flowing as he grabbed his ninth goal of the season from the penalty spot. Put in a solid shift for the 70 minutes he was on and that could be rewarded with another start.
