West Brom manager Tony Pulis may make “one or two changes” after monitoring his players’ fitness levels in a light training session on Friday.

The Baggies stayed in Southampton after their 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Tuesday and Rickie Lambert will be back in contention after missing that game through illness.

Jonas Olsson will be one of the players Pulis monitors before the game as he has just come back from a hamstring problem and James Morrison will be unavailable after coming off after playing only seven minutes on Tuesday due to a similar injury.

Provisional squad: Foster, Myhill, Lindegaard, Chester, Gamboa, Dawson, Olsson, McAuley, Evans, Brunt, Pocognoli, Fletcher, Yacob, McClean, McManaman, Gardner, Sessegnon, Lambert, Berahino, Anichebe, Rondon.

Provisional squad: Forster, Stekelenburg, Gazzaniga, K Davis, Martina, Van Dijk, Fonte, Yoshida, Targett, Clasie, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, S Davis, Tadic, Ramirez, Mane, Long, Pelle, Juanmi, Wanyama.
