West Brom come up against Premier League side Crystal Palace in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening, and a huge majority of Baggies fans want to see Jonathan Leko start the game at the Hawthorns.
Boss Darren Moore, who was only confirmed as the club’s permanent manager in the summer, has not made too many changes to his side since he settled on the 3-4-1-2 formation during the first couple of weeks of this season but this tie could be his chance to rest some of the first team regulars.

Leicester City loanee Harvey Barnes has been in blistering form behind the two strikers, but against Palace it is clear that West Brom fans want him rested and Leko to play in his place. The 19-year-old started the last Carabao Cup game and scored as the Baggies beat Mansfield Town 2-1.
Leko is an England U19 international and made his debut for the club in September 2015 after coming through the youth system. However, he is yet to play a Championship game this season and the Carabao Cup tie could be his chance to impress.
In total, 88 per cent of the Baggies fans that answered our poll wanted Leko to start. Check out the full results below.
