Predicted Stoke City and West Brom line-ups

Here is how we predict Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 29th August 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Britannia Stadium, Stoke

Odds: Stoke 10/11, Draw 12/5, West Brom 16/5

Stoke City welcome West Bromwich Albion to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday with both sides looking to build on relatively disappointing starts to the new campaign.

Both teams needed penalties to overcome lower league opposition in the Capital One Cup earlier this week so it will be interesting to see how those additional efforts affect Tony Pulis’s and Mark Hughes’ men.

West Brom are currently bottom of the table after collecting just one point from three matches, although their performance against Chelsea last time out spoke of better things to come.

As for Stoke, they are just one point better off after drawing with Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City.

In early team news, Stoke are without Ryan Shawcross with a back injury and Peter Odemwingie with a hamstring problem.

West Brom are without Ben Foster and have a minor doubt regarding Chris Brunt who is suffering from a slight knock.
