Maja and Sarmiento calls as Corberan makes wholesale changes - West Brom predicted XI v Stoke - gallery

Here’s how we predict West Bromwich Albion to line up for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash against Stoke City.

West Bromwich Albion kickstart their Carabao Cup campaign on Tuesday evening as they take on fellow English second-tier outfit Stoke City at bet365 Stadium.

Just three days on from the opening day of the Sky Bet Championship, the Baggies have a quick opportunity to put the 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers behind them.

Carlos Corberan’s men suffered two quickfire goals in the first half at Ewood Park and were unable to bring it back, even despite the best efforts of Matt Phillips.

Now, though, another competition awaits and Albion fans will be eager to see their side progress to the second round, matching the performance of last season.

Corberan was shown a red card in the dugout and it awaits to be seen whether he will be on the touchline or not, with his punishment not yet disclosed.

Regardless, West Brom are likely to field a rotated squad on Tuesday, displaying the depth at Corberan’s disposal. With that in mind, here’s the XI we think will start.
