Scott Carson has already been assured of his place in goal despite a shaky display but Jonas Olsson will be hoping to return to the defence after being consigned to the bench at Stamford Bridge.

New signing Peter Odemwingie could make his debut only 24 hours after his move from Lokomotiv Moscow was confirmed.

Ishmael Miller (thigh) and Joe Mattock (ankle) have both been ruled out for up to a month after picking up injuries in training this week while Reuben Reid has joined Walsall on loan.

Baggies (from): Carson, Myhill, Jara, Zuiverloon, S Reid, Olsson, Tamas, Ibanez, Meite, Shorey, Cech, Thomas, Barnes, Morrison, Dorrans, Mulumbu, Brunt, Bednar, Cox, Moore, Wood.
