West Brom vs Swansea News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, West Brom vs Swansea lineups and team news for Saturday’s clash below.

West Brom

West Brom will be missing Adam Reach and Daryl Dike this weekend, though the Baggies will be able to name the same XI that lost 2-1 at Blackburn on the opening day of the season if they want.

Predicted Lineup for West Brom: Palmer – Furlong, Ajayi, Kipre, Townsend – Yokuslu, Chalobah, Wallace, Molumby, Phillips – Thomas-Asante

Swansea

Keeper Steven Benda is on the road to recovery from an ACL injury, though he won't be involved again this weekend. Swansea will be aiming to maintain their excellent record against WBA when the teams meet on Saturday.

Predicted Lineup for Swansea: Rushworth – Ashby, Darling, Cabango, Wood-Gordon, Key – Fulton, Grimes, Paterson – Yates, Piroe

Player to Watch – Joel Piroe

Dutch attacker Joel Piroe was Swansea’s leading scorer last season and the prolific 24-year-old notched his first two goals of the new campaign in midweek when he netted a brace against Northampton in the cup. Now that he is up and running, Piroe is one to watch in the anytime scorer’s market this weekend.
