West Brom vs Swansea City prediction: West Brom line-up
West Brom welcome Swansea City to the Hawthorns on Sunday, looking to continue their excellent winning run in the Championship.
The Baggies picked up a fifth successive win at Preston North End, thanks to a late penalty from Charlie Austin. They returned to the top of the Championship table and extended their winning run to five matches with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Preston.
Swansea City, meanwhile, have won just once in their last five games and will be aiming to provide a stiff challenge to the table-toppers.
West Brom have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Swansea game.
