West Brom's top scorer Peter Odemwingie could return to the side for the match against Manchester City on Sunday.

The Nigerian striker, who suffered a knee injury in the Baggies' draw against Bolton at the beginning of October, has scored three goals in six Premier League appearance this season.

Midfielder James Morrison is still a doubt due to a knee injury, while Jonas Olsson's Achilles complaint could put him out until Christmas. Gonzalo Jara will be suspended after being dismissed against Blackpool on Monday, but defender Pablo Ibanez is available after his red card from the same match was rescinded.

Carlos Tevez is back in Manchester and in contention to make his return to Roberto Mancini's side for the trip.

The captain's return from Argentina, where he had been battling a thigh problem as well as homesickness is a boost for the under-fire Italian, who has now overseen successive defeats to Arsenal, Wolves and Lech Poznan.

Yaya and Kolo Toure did not travel to Poland as a precaution but should be fit, while Aleksandar Kolarov could be in line for just a second Premier League appearance after recovering from a lengthy lay-off caused by an injured ankle.

Albion (from): Carson, Ibanez, Morrison, Barnes, Bednar, Brunt, Reid, Myhill, Fortune, Dorrans, Shorey, Thomas, Mulumbu, Zuiverloon, Meite, Odemwingie, Fortune, Tchoyi, Scharner, Thomas, Tamas, Cox, Downing, Sawyers, Allsopp, Kiely.

Man City (from): Hart, Richards, Zabaleta, Bridge, Lescott, Boyata, De Jong, Vieira, Barry, Johnson, K Toure, Y Toure, Tevez, Silva, Adebayor, Balotelli, Kolarov, Given, Milner, Kompany, Boateng.

Pulis To Liverpool Might Just Work

One Mailboxer believes that Tony Pulis managing Liverpool isn't as silly as you might think. Plus Bournemouth aren't that romantic and we're all guilty of ignoring Everton...
