West Brom’s predicted starting XI vs Huddersfield Town

Football Writers' Association: Opening the Door to BAME Journalists

West Brom host Championship strugglers Huddersfield as they look to continue their unbeaten run in the league to an eighth straight game.

Slaven Bilic’s men have won three and drawn four of their opening seven matches, seeing them occupy a spot in sixth while the Terriers sit 23rd without a win.

Last weekend, they managed to salvage yet another point with a late equaliser, but instead of it being a penalty, this time it was centre-back Semi Ajayi heading home.

Huddersfield have only recently appointed a new manager in Danny Cowley and his first game in charge ended in defeat at the hands of local rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

He’s now had more time with his squad and will undoubtedly be expecting a better performance.

So, will Bilic make any changes at the Hawthorns?

One dilemma he faces is at left-back as usual choice Kieran Gibbs returns from injury – the 29-year-old had started five games before then.

However, young Nathan Ferguson has been playing so well in that role he may well keep it – against Fulham he recorded a 7.16 rating by WhoScored.

That would mean Darnell Furlong keeps his place at right-back with the rest of the defence remaining the same.

In midfield, it’s highly unlikely that either Romaine Sawyers or Jake Livermore lose their spots as they have started every single Championship game this term.

Loan star Matheus Pereira is proving to be an interesting choice in the number ten role having knocked Filip Krovinovic out of the starting lineup – he recorded two assists against Blackburn in his first start of the season.

Matty Phillips and Charlie Austin should retain their positions while there could be a change on the left after Kyle Edwards’ impact against Fulham.

The academy graduate came on in the second half, taking the armband from Livermore and he certainly earned his plaudits from the Baggies faithful.

He could replace West Ham loanee Grady Diangana after an uninspiring performance in the same game, rating out at a lowly 6.24.
