West Brom have confirmed their starting XI against Millwall
West Brom have confirmed their starting XI against Millwall, and Valerien Ismael has made one change from the Baggies’ 1-0 win over Peterborough.
Dara O’Shea will be out for a long time, while Kean Bryan is not ready to start, so Cedric Kipre comes to play alongside Kyle Bartley and Semi Ajayi.
Conor Townsend and Darnell Furlong start in the wing-back spots while Alex Mowatt and Jake Livermore once more anchor down the centre of midfield.
However, new signing Jayson Molumby is on the bench and could make his debut against his old team.
The big news is that Robinson is on the bench and Matt Phillips continues on the wing.
Jordan Hugill and Robert Snodgrass providing attacking options off the bench, and after a few players returned from injury, Ismael’s options look a lot stronger.
Big news for the Baggies.
The big news for West Brom is that Kipre will be playing in defence with Bryan and Matt Clarke not quite ready to start.
So, it will be intriguing to see how he does, but Ajayi and Bartley have plenty of Championship experience, and you would think they would be able to guide him through the match.
Robinson is the Baggies’ top goalscorer and has looked threatening in every game he has played, so we are excited to see what he does today against the Lions when he comes on.
The options on the bench are looking a lot better than recent weeks, and if things are going wrong, there are potential game-changers available.
This is a strong team from Ismael, and we would be surprised if they don’t extend their unbeaten run with a comfortable win.
