Matt Clarke starts: The predicted West Brom XI to face QPR on Friday night

Published

on

West Brom have made an unbeaten start to the new Championship season, accumulating 16 points from their opening eight games. 

The Baggies are one of two EFL sides to remain without a league defeat this season, with Championship leaders Bournemouth yet to taste defeat also. 

Despite the positivity surrounding their unbeaten start, Valerien Ismael’s side have drawn their last three matches, in home games against Derby County and Millwall, and also a trip to Millwall. 

It is a season where the only objective set is returning to the Premier League, and whilst they are making strides to achieve that, Ismael will not be too impressed with the three most recent draws.

Are these 22 West Brom stats real or fake?

West Brom have played their home games at the Hawthorns since their formation – True or false?

QPR visit The Hawthorns tomorrow, and Ismael will be hoping to get back to winning ways.

The R’s have also made a strong start to the new campaign, sitting just a point outside the play-off positions. 

Here, we take a look at how West Brom could line up against QPR tomorrow evening…

Keeping Sam Johnstone in the summer created another reason to be optimistic about this season, and given he is fit, he is likely to continue in goal throughout this season.

In the absence of Dara O’Shea, Semi Ajayi should operate as the right-sided centre-back, with Kyle Bartley taking the more central role.

Kean Bryan could make a start at centre-back, but it appears that Matt Clarke is making impressive strides towards full fitness, and if he is available, then it is likely that he will be brought in from the very start.

Connor Townsend and Darnell Furlong should also be named in the starting XI, with the pair proving to be real attacking threats when in possession, whilst also having the defensive competence to operate in the wing-back role.

Jayson Molumby will be pushing for first-team football, but he is unlikely to break the bond between Alex Mowatt and Jake Livermore at present.

The Baggies have exciting attacking options, but in recent weeks, Ismael has been unable to find the right combination.
Grady Diangana has looked a threat in recent weeks, whilst Matty Phillips offers something different in a central position.

Callum Robinson has also proved to be an excellent Championship performer in recent years, and he should be a part of an interchangeable front three.
