West Brom predicted starting line-up vs Bristol City - Jed Wallace and Pipa calls made - gallery

Here’s how we think West Brom will line up ahead of their trip to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City this weekend

West Brom's 2023/24 Championship season resumes after the international break with a trip to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City.

The Baggies are hoping to get back to winning ways after suffering a shock home to defeat early season strugglers Huddersfield Town, and there's a desire to do that against the Robins. Bristol City won against Swansea City on September 2, and that means they're eighth in the league, and a point above Carlos Corberan's men ahead of kick-off tomorrow.

West Brom went to a flat back four in their defeat to the Terriers, but on the road so far we've seen a back three consisting of three centre-backs. Cedric Kipre and Semi Ajayi have held the fort in those positions, but there's been several players that have slotted in alongside them. Bristol City play with a 4-3-3 and Corberan may consider matching them up, but as it stands we think he'll go for a 3-4-3.

Some tough decisions are to be made, as for deadline day signing Pipa is available. Is he going to be given a start straight from the off or will Darnell Furlong hold his position?

Corberan worked with Pipa at Huddersfield before and the boss knows full well what the attacking right wing-back can offer. A section of supporters would like to see some changes, and there are some players that perhaps haven't got the minutes they've deserved so far, and so we think there's going to be around four changes when the team is announced at 2.00 pm on Saturday.
