Picking the Best Potential West Brom Lineup to Face Southampton on Saturday

​​West Brom host ​Southampton in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, and after their heroics in the previous round, the Baggies will be hoping that this will be their year to lift the famous cup for the first time since 1968. 


Here is the best potential lineup for the match:

Goalkeeper

  • Foster
    Foster1

​Despite conceding twice in the victory over ​Liverpool in the previous round, Ben Foster showed why he was on the books at ​Manchester United in his early years, and the Englishman will be hoping for another outstanding performance on Saturday.

Defence

  • Nyom
    Nyom2
  • Hegazi
    Hegazi26
  • Evans
    Evans6
  • Gibbs
    Gibbs3

​Just two weeks ago this backline was torn apart by the Saints, as they slumped to a 3-2 home defeat.


Despite their problems at the back, the Baggies do possess a great threat at set-pieces with both Ahmed Hegazi and Jonny Evans, and after scoring in the defeat against the Saints the towering Hegazi will be confident of getting his name on the scoresheet once again at the weekend.

Midfield

  • Brunt
    Brunt11
  • Krychowiak
    Krychowiak20
  • Barry
    Barry18
  • McClean
    McClean14

​Ex-Paris Saint-Germain man Grzegorz Krychowiak has been brilliant for the Baggies in the past few weeks, and has formed a solid understanding with veteran Gareth Barry in the middle of the park.


Northern Irishman Chris Brunt provided two assists in the defeat to the Saints last time out, and expect the left foot wizard to be in the thick of the action on Saturday with his dangerous set-piece deliveries into the box.

Forwards

  • Rondón
    Rondón9
  • Rodriguez
    Rodriguez19

​Jay Rodriguez comes up against his former club on Saturday, and with three goals in the FA Cup this season, the Englishman will be gunning to add to his tally against the Saints.


The former ​Burnley man has shown glimpses of the type of player that we saw at St. Mary's before his long-term injury, and with the Baggies battling relegation it wouldn't come as a surprise to see Rodriguez drag his team out of the relegation zone and secure safety for another season.
