Darren Moore to make 3 changes – Strongest 3-5-1-2 XI to face Sheffield Wednesday

Predicted West Brom line-up to face Sheffield Wednesday

West Brom rocketed their way to the top of the table by picking up a 3-2 victory against Preston during the weekend. Darren Moore’s men are now the favourites to lift the title after showing a surge in their form.

The Baggies return in midweek to take on Sheffield Wednesday and a win would help them cement their place at the top of the table.

Team News

Darren Moore will be glad that all of his stars returned unscathed from the last game and he will be relieved that he has a fully fit and firing squad to deploy. A few changes can be expected given that the Baggies need to keep their stars fresh and away from the treatment table.

Probable West Brom XI

Manager: Darren Moore

Formation: 3-5-1-2

Sam Johnstone (GK)

Johnstone has put in dominant performances since making the loan move from Manchester United. He will continue in goal for this game.

Craig Dawson (RCB)

The 28-year-old has been impressive at the back for West Brom this season.

Ahmed Hegazi (CB)

Hegazi seems determined to get the Baggies back into the Premier League. The Egyptian is a rock at the back.

Kyle Bartley (LCB)

Bartley is proving to be a great signing for the Baggies this season. He will complete the three-man backline.

Matt Phillips (RM)

Phillips was rested for the last game and he should return for this one. The midfielder is one of the most potent threats going forward.

Jake Livermore (RCM)

Livermore has been superb with his defensive contribution in the middle of the park. He offers a sense of stability and cohesion.

Chris Brunt (LCM)

Brunt just doesn’t seem like his old self and the midfielder really needs to step up in order to maintain the Baggies’ form.

Kieran Gibbs (LM)

Gibbs’ raids down the flank have been extremely effective in Darren Moore’s system this season. He should continue in his favoured role.

Harvey Barnes (CAM)

The youngster has been explosive sitting behind the strikers. He will definitely be a huge player in the coming years.

Jay Rodriguez (ST)

Rodriguez now looks like his old self and has been supreme in front of the goal. He is their top scorer in the league and is one of the contenders for the Golden Boot.

Hal Robson-Kanu (ST)

Robson-Kanu should replace Dwight Gayle in goal for this game. He is more than capable of producing the goods when required.
