West Brom predicted starting XI vs Stoke City - as Carlos Corberan makes emergency changes - gallery
Carlos Corberan has work to do as the Championship run-in continues for West Bromwich Albion.
Carlos Corberan has few options to choose from when it comes to selecting his West Bromwich Albion starting 11 to face Stoke City on Saturday. The Baggies have been hit with an injury crisis which has seen several key players forced out of action, denting their play-off hopes and leaving them in a mid-table position.
Albion supporters were left frustrated as they saw their side blow a two-goal lead against relegation strugglers Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. This meant Corberan’s side picked up just one point out of six over the Easter weekend against two sides in the bottom half.
But their issues aren’t likely to improve as they travel away from home on Saturday to take on Stoke, with Albion failing to win any of their last seven games on their travels. The hosts have also seen a slight upturn in their form, only losing one of their last seven matches.
And the Baggies don’t have the best record when taking on the Potters, winning just one of their last four meetings with the Staffordshire-based side. But it’s imperative that they try to reignite their play-off push with victory this weekend, after not winning in their last four.
Here’s the lineup we think Corberan could go for on Saturday to give West Brom the best chance of doing so.
