Sky Bet Championship

Bryan starts: The predicted West Brom XI to face Millwall on Saturday

Published

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to continue their fine start to the season this weekend as they play host to Millwall at the Hawthorns on Saturday. 

The Baggies will still be on a high from their last league result after Semi Ajayi’s injury time winner secured a smash and grab victory away at Peterborough United.

Aside from suffering a 6-0 hammering at the hands of Arsenal in the Carabao Cup, Valerien Ismael is still unbeaten in the Sky Bet Championship and will be aiming to add to his side’s tally of 13 points.

With a host of new signings having been brought through the door over the summer, the challenge for the West Brom boss will be to work out what his best side looks like.

What year did Valerien Ismael become Barnsley manager?

Here, we take a look at the predicted West Brom starting eleven to face Millwall tomorrow afternoon.

Sam Johnstone will once again continue in goal after failing to secure a move away from the club over the summer.

There will be one change to the back three, with new signing Kean Bryan coming in for the injured Dara O’Shea on the left hand side, thus slotting in alongside Kyle Bartley and Ajayi.

In the midfield four, Conor Townsend and Darnell Furlong will keep their places as advanced wing backs, whilst Alex Mowatt and Jake Livermore should both stay in the centre of the park despite the recent addition of Jayson Molumby from Brighton and Hove Albion.

One more change is expected to the side which tasted victory against Peterborough last time out, with Callum Robinson returning to the starting line up in place of Matt Phillips after recovering from a bout of Covid-19.

The former Sheffield United man will line up alongside the likes of Karlan Grant and Grady Diangana as the Baggies look to get another three points under their belts.
