West Brom v Liverpool preview

The defender is sidelined along with Youssouf Mulumbu who serves the final game of his three-match ban while Ben Foster remains a long-term absentee with a knee injury.

Craig Dawson is fit, though, despite limping off against Crystal Palace with a dead leg with the defender set to keep his place.

Defender Mamadou Sakho (thigh) and midfielder Lucas Leiva (thigh) are also ruled out of the trip but winger Jordon Ibe returns after being ineligible for last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final.

Midfielder Adam Lallana (groin) and long-time absentee Jon Flanagan (knee) have returned to training but both are doubtful.
