West Brom v Aston Villa

West Bromwich Albion will be targeting a return to winning ways when bottom-of-the-table Aston Villa make the trip to the Hawthorns on Saturday.

The Baggies appeared to have turned the corner after playing to a 2-2 draw with Chelsea last week, but slumped to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Southampton in their next game.

The Villans, meanwhile, will be in good spirits after following up on a surprise 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace with a 1-1 draw against Leicester City last weekend.

In team news, West Brom are set to welcome back striker Saido Berahino following a stomach bug, while goalkeeper Ben Foster is pushing to make his first Premier League appearance of the campaign after recovering from a long-term injury.

James Morrison definitely misses out, while Chris Brunt, Darren Fletcher and Jonas Olsson will undergo late fitness tests.

The Villans are sweating over the fitness of hip-injury victim Gabby Agbonlahor as they target back-to-back victories for the first time this season.

Carlos Sanchez will undergo a late test, but Alan Hutton, Adama Traore and Jordan Amavi will definitely miss out.
