Team News: West Bromwich Albion
Daryl Dike (Achilles tendon surgery) and Adam Reach (Thigh Problems) will not be taking part for West Bromwich Albion gaffer Carlos Corberán.
It’s our opinion that The Baggies will probably make use of the 3-4-3 system, beginning the first half with Alex Palmer, Semi Ajayi, Kyle Bartley, Erik Pieters, Matthew Phillips, Jayson Molumby, Alex Mowatt, Conor Townsend, Grady Diangana, B. Thomas-Asante and Jeremy Sarmiento.
Team News: Millwall
Due to a completely injury-free squad to pick from, the Millwall manager Gary Rowett doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that The Lions could decide to utilise a 3-4-1-2 lineup by sending out Bartosz Bialkowski, Ryan Leonard, Jake Cooper, Murray Wallace, Brooke Norton-Cuffy, Ryan Longman, Casper de Norre, Allan Campbell, Zian Flemming, Tom Bradshaw and Duncan Watmore.
Our assessment here is that Millwall might have a difficult job to find the net against this West Bromwich Albion outfit who we reckon should score at least once to gain the upper hand.
That’s why our selection here is for a good battle with a 1-0 win for West Bromwich Albion after 90 minutes.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
