West Brom have made a number of changes for their Premier League clash against Manchester United on Saturday evening.
Slaven Bilic was reportedly hit with a string of positive COVID-19 tests and Hal Robson-Kanu has returned to the bench.
Confirming on their Twitter account prior to kick-off, Matheus Pereira, Branislav Ivanovic and Callum Robinson are all involved in the squad after being cleared.

West Brom are still looking for their first Premier League win of the season, and it won’t be easy at Old Trafford against the Red Devils, with Jake Livermore a notable absentee.
Having said that, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to see his side win at home so far, and he has plenty of his own problems.
The likes of Victor Lindelof and Marcus Rashford have both been doubts for a couple of weeks now after missing the international break.
Luke Shaw is also missing, meaning that Alex Telles has been thrown in to make his debut with little-to-no training behind him.
This is a good chance for the Baggies to play before the likes of Sheffield United and Burnley and put pressure on them before their games this weekend.
Should Bilic’s men pick up three points, they would jump out of the relegation zone and a poor start would turn into a decent one under the circumstances.
Bilic has demanded fight, and he got that against Spurs, now it’s time for his side to show exactly the same tonight.
