Team News

  • With Ki Sung-Yueng back to fitness, Michu could go back up front, with De Guzman taking the attacking midfield role.
  • Danny Graham and Luke Moore are both doubts due to illness, wil Itay Shechter may struggle to retain his spot after a mediocre performance.
  • Gerhard Tremmel was impressive between the posts and is staking a real claim for the number 1 jersey.
  • Youssuf Mulumbu sat out the 4-2 win over Sunderland with a hamstring injury and is not expected to be back in time to face Swansea, so Chris Brunt could start again with James Morrison dropping into defensive midfield.
  • Ben Foster was thought to be in contention at the weekend, but it has now been confirmed that he will undergo groin surgery in Germany and will be out for 7-10 days as a result.
  • Jonas Olsson has a calf strain and may miss out.
  • Craig Dawson misses out again due to an eye injury.

Prediction

  • West Brom's current run of form has seen them beat the likes of Chelsea in a 4 game winning streak, and they are looking to keep this run going against a good Swansea side.
  • The Swans have scored a fair few goals this season but they are also conceding too many and having to fight back from losing positions all too often. Michael Laudrup will be hoping his side can start well by scoring first rather than having to chase the game yet again.
  • With both teams playing well and scoring plenty of goals at present, we could be in for a high scoring affair. West Brom are flying at the moment, though, and could edge the goal fest.
