West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has given an injury update ahead of his side's Premier League game against Leicester City.

In comments published on the Baggies' official Twitter account, their manager confirmed that Hal Robson-Kanu and James Morrison are suffering from slight injuries but could be back for Monday's clash.

The West Brom boss also confirmed that Nacer Chadli is currently out of the country as he continues his own rehabilitation and is unlikely to feature against the Foxes.

"Hal Robson-Kanu has a little strain and Mozza hurt his calf muscle so there are a couple of niggles," Pulis said.

"Nacer is seeing a back specialist abroad and he won't be back in the building until Saturday morning."

While West Brom do not kick off their next game until 48 hours later, it will be a surprise to see Chadli feature, especially if he is having ongoing problems wit his back.

West Brom are currently 10th in the table with nine points from their first seven matches, and they will know that a victory on Monday could take them as high as sixth depending on results over the weekend.

As for Leicester, they are only outside the relegation zone on goal-difference and they will be desperate to get three points on the board against Pulis's side.

Expect this to be a hard-fought encounter that could go either way and may be settled by a single goal.
