Squad sheets: West Bromwich Albion v Stoke City
6 years ago

There is nothing to choose from these two ? apart from form. Both are mid-table, with 16 points from 13 games, but while Stoke have won their last two, including an impressive victory over Liverpool, their opponents have taken a solitary point from their last four matches. Albion need to beware the resurgent Kenwyne Jones, outstanding against Liverpool, and will be glad to have Gonzalo Jara available again after a three-match ban, but they could be without the influential Chris Brunt, injured on international duty with Northern Ireland. Stoke will probably be unchanged. Joe Lovejoy
