West Bromwich Albion are still without striker Daryl Dike, who is out with a long-term injury, and summer acquisition Brandon Thomas-Asante may be preferred over Karlan Grant to lead the line.
Additionally, Okay Yokuslu and Jayson Molumby could make a comeback to the starting lineup in the centre of the midfield. New signings Erik Pieters could revert to playing alongside Dara O’Shea in defence after Semi Ajayi sustained an injury before the international break.
The attack of Swansea City will be led by Joel Piroe, who has just rediscovered his scoring touch, scoring his first four goals of the Championship campaign in the last five games.
Following the Swans’ most recent game, when Nathan Wood, Kyle Naughton, and Ben Cabango were favoured, Harry Darling will try to reclaim a spot in the defensive line.

West Brom 1-1 Swansea City
Due to West Brom’s poor start to the season, manager Steve Bruce is under a lot of pressure. If he fails to manage a positive outcome in the match against Swansea City, his problems can get worse.
Swansea, in contrast, are on the upswing after collecting more than half of their season’s total points in the last four games.
