West Brom welcome Manchester City to The Hawthorns on Tuesday evening in the Premier League.

Sam Allardyce will want a reaction from his side in one of their toughest tests yet after that 2-1 defeat at West Ham last week.

The Baggies look unlikely to make any signings before the clash and may have to wait to welcome new faces in the final week of the window.

Sam Johnstone returned at the London Stadium after his positive COVID-19 test, and he will remain in-between the sticks.

The back four hasn’t put a foot wrong recently, and they should be given the chance to continue against one of the league’s best, with Semi Ajayi and Kyle Bartley partnering each other in the middle.

Dara O’Shea has replaced Darnell Furlong recently and should keep his spot, with Kieran Gibbs staying on the left with Conor Townsend still out.

Romaine Sawyers once again came in for criticism against West Ham, and he simply has to be axed against City, who could easily expose him.

That would see Conor Gallagher move back in the middle alongside Jake Livermore and Robert Snodgrass can take his spot back on the right.

Kamil Grosicki looks likely to continue in the absence of Grady Diangana, and that will leave Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson to complete the starting XI.

The Brazilian has been phenomenal in the past week, scoring three times and proving his worth after reports of unrest.

Here is how we expect the Baggies to line up…
