Injuries will be a major concern for the Baggies as they will be traveling to Stoke City without injured Dara O’Shea, Matthew Clarke, Rayhaan Tulloch, and Kenneth Zohore. Due to the collateral ligament tear, the visitors will be without the services of Rico Richards. Besides this Karlan Grant has been making a significant impact as West Brom remains undefeated with 22 points and he will be the one to watch out.

Predicted XI: 

Johnstone; Semi Ajayi, K Bartley, Townsend; Darnell Furlong, Livermore, Alex Mowatt, Adam Reach; Matt Phillips, Robinson, Karlan Grant

Stoke City vs West Bromwich Predictions

Both sides are very much capable of turning things in their favor. The Baggies are flying high after their unbeaten start to this season and they seem stronger than ever. Although Potter’s last game concluded in a draw but do not let this distract you from the fact that they can be very dangerous at times. However as it is a home game for Stoke City, the crowd and enthusiastic atmosphere will add to their advantage. But whatever the result may be one thing that is evident is a thrilling game night on Saturday.
