Published

on

With West Brom facing Leicester City in an important Championship clash, here’s the predicted XI considering the available options and potential formations:

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Goalkeeper:
1. Sam Johnstone

Defenders:
2. Dara O’Shea (Right-back)
3. Kyle Bartley (Center-back)
4. Matt Clarke (Center-back)
5. Conor Townsend (Left-back)

Midfielders:
6. Alex Mowatt (Central midfielder)
7. Okay Yokuslu (Central midfielder)
8. Matt Phillips (Right winger)
9. Karlan Grant (Attacking midfielder)
10. Grady Diangana (Left winger)

Striker:
11. Callum Robinson (Striker)

With limited options upfront due to injuries or suspensions, Callum Robinson could be deployed as a makeshift striker, with support from the attacking midfield trio of Phillips, Grant, and Diangana. The midfield pivot of Mowatt and Yokuslu will provide stability and support in both defensive and offensive phases. Defensively, O’Shea, Bartley, Clarke, and Townsend could form the backline, while Johnstone guards the goal.

Of course, the actual lineup may vary based on tactical adjustments made by the manager and last-minute fitness updates.
