Confirmed: West Brom v Swansea lineups - Ideye starts

West Brom face Swansea City in the Premier League this evening.

West Brom look to continue their fight against relegation this evening against Swansea City at The Hawthorns.

West Brom go into the game coming off the back of a hard-fought draw against Burnley at the weekend.

A Brown Ideye goal proved the equaliser in a 2-2 draw, after they went 2-0 down at Turf Moor.

Forward Victor Anichebe is a doubt after pulling a groin against Burnley at the weekend.

Swansea City have had an unassuming but assured season.

They sit ninth in the table and have a good recent record at The Hawthorns, so will hope to come away with something from this game.

Gylfi Sigurdsson remains suspended while Marvin Emnes is injured. Wayne Routledge returns from injury.

When the two met earlier in the season it did not go well for West Brom. They were thrashed at the Liberty Stadium by an in form Swansea team. Nathan Dyer was the hero that day, scoring twice in the fixture. The returning Routledge also scored in that game as The Baggies failed to find form.
