Picking the Potential West Brom Lineup to Face Stoke on Saturday

​West Brom are struggling to adjust to life under Alan Pardew, but a trip away to a ​Stoke City side that has lost five of their last six gives them a perfect opportunity to snatch their first win under the new boss.


Here's a potential lineup Pardew could choose to face Stoke on Saturday.

Goalkeeper

  • Foster

​Ben Foster will keep his place in goal.

Defence

  • Nyom
    Nyom2
  • Evans
    Evans6
  • Hegazi
    Hegazi26
  • Brunt
    Brunt11

​Recently confirmed as a permanent signing, Ahmed Hegazi has been ​West Brom's best defender in recent games, despite the team's overall poor form. 


Captain Jonny Evans will retain his place alongside Hegazi in the centre of defence, while Christ Brunt could keep Kieran Gibbs out of the side - a player who ironically signed in order to get more first team football.

Midfield

  • Barry
    Barry18
  • Livermore
    Livermore8
  • Field
    Field28

​Youngster Sam Field could start alongside the experience of Gareth Barry and Jake Livermore in a three-man midfield. Pardew had the three playing against ​Manchester United and will likely do so in the future, unless loanee Grzegorz Krychowiak pulls out some impressive performances in training to warrant a return to the side.

Forwards

  • Robson-Kanu
    Robson-Kanu4
  • Rondón
    Rondón9
  • Rodriguez
    Rodriguez19

​Another aspect of Pardew's selection that is expected to remain unchanged. 


Pardew is not known for tinkering too much with his forward lines and will want his set up to attack with aggression. While that hasn't happened as of yet - they've only scored a single goal since he took charge - Saturday would be the perfect time to start.
