Brazilian attacking midfielder Matheus Pereira has netted nearly one third of his side's 34 league goals this term having scored 11 times.

The 25-year-old has also weighed in with six assists, double that of any other Baggies player, but Pereira is reportedly an injury doubt for Sunday's clash against Leeds in West Yorkshire.

The reports have emerged from the Express & Star who are reporting that boss Sam Allardyce is going to leave it late before making a decision.

Pereira will reportedly try to prove his fitness in training on Saturday morning.

West Brom signed Pereira from Sporting Lisbon on a four-year deal for around £9m last summer following his superb loan spell in the Championship.

The second-bottom Baggies have already been relegated and Sunday's contest will be Allardyce's last game in charge.
