Confirmed: West Brom v Sunderland lineups - DeAndre Yedlin starts

West Brom - The Hawthorns

Sunderland’s DeAndre Yedlin will start against West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League this afternoon…

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League this weekend when they take on Sunderland at home.

The Baggies will head into the game at The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park.

Tony Pulis’s side are just a place above the Premier League relegation zone at the moment, having collected just eight points from as many matches so far.

Meanwhile, Sunderland currently find themselves second from bottom in the league standings with just three points from eight games.

The Black Cats have a new manager in charge, with Sam Allardyce having succeeded Dick Advocaat during the international break.

The former Newcastle United and West Ham United boss will be determined to kickstart his Sunderland managerial career with a win, but it will not be easy against fellow strugglers West Brom.
