West Brom manager Tony Mowbray made two changes – one enforced – from the side beaten 4-0 at Sunderland, for today’s Premier League match at home to Manchester City.

Striker Roman Bednar and midfielder Kim Do-Heon came into the starting line-up in place of winger Chris Brunt and play-maker Borja Valero, who was suffering with illness.

City boss Mark Hughes also made two alterations from the line-up beaten at home by Everton last weekend, after fielding a shadow side in the UEFA Cup time away to Racing Santander.

Robinho (ankle) and the dropped Elano made way for Darius Vassell and Gelson Fernandes.

West Brom: Carson, Zuiverloon, Meite, Olsson, Robinson, Morrison, Koren, Greening, Kim, Bednar, Moore.

Subs: Kiely, Hoefkens, Barnett, Brunt, Beattie, Dorrans, Filipe Teixeira.

Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Richards, Dunne, Ball, Wright-Phillips, Ireland, Kompany, Fernandes, Mwaruwari, Vassell.

Subs: Schmeichel, Onuoha, Garrido, Clayton, Hamann, Evans, Caicedo.

Referee: Chris Foy (Merseyside)
