Preview: West Brom XI vs Swansea – latest team & injury news, predicted XI

Valerien Ismael’s West Bromwich Albion side head into Wednesday evening’s Championship fixture in a fine run of form, with the Baggies’ picking up ten points from a possible 15 over their last five fixtures.

However, with Albion’s hosts, Swansea City, having secured eight points of their own over their last five games, Ismael will know that the clash with Russell Martin’s side will not be an easy fixture, especially considering the game is being played at the Liberty Stadium – where the Swans have lost just once all season.

So, will the 46-year-old make any changes to the team which started in the 1-0 win over Birmingham City last Friday? Here’s how we think West Brom could line up against Swansea, along with the latest team and injury news…

With Ismael confirming in his pre-match press conference that Grady Diangana will be unavailable for selection for the trip to Swansea – as the 23-year-old is yet to recover from an ongoing hamstring injury – in addition to revealing that Alex Mowatt is also a doubt for the fixture due to a toe injury, we predict the Frenchman will make two changes to the team which lined up against the Blues last week.

The back five remains unchanged – with Sam Johnstone starting in goal, Matt Clarke, Kyle Bartley and Semi Ajayi making up the back three and Conor Townsend and Darnell Furlong starting at left and right wing-back respectively.

The first change comes in the middle of the park, with Mowatt dropping out of the starting XI, and Brighton & Hove Albion loanee Jayson Molumby – who impressed after replacing Mowatt against Birmingham – taking the 26-year-old’s spot in central midfield alongside Jake Livermore.

In attack, Callum Robinson retains his spot up top, as does Karlan Grant on the left-wing, while, in the absence of Grady Diangana, the £38k-per-week Robert Snodgrass is handed his first Championship start of the season, with 30-year-old right-winger Matt Phillips having to make do with a spot on the bench.
