Romelu Lukaku partners Marc-Antoine Fortune in attack for West Bromwich Albion against Newcastle United.

Romelu Lukaku and Marc-Antoine Fortune have both been given starts for West Bromwich Albion as the Baggies aim to pile more misery on Newcastle United.

Shane Long drops to the bench for the hosts, while Goran Popov returns in defence for Steve Clarke's side.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has made three changes, with Rob Elliot starting in goal following the news that Tim Krul will miss the remainder of the season with a dislocated shoulder.

Massadio Haidara and James Perch both return to the starting lineup as replacements for injured duo Cheick Tiote and Sylvain Marveaux.

West Brom: Foster, Jones, McAuley, Olsson, Popov, Dorrans, Yacob, Morrison, Brunt, Fortune, Lukaku

Newcastle: Elliot, Debuchy, Steven Taylor, Yanga-Mbiwa, Haidara, Perch, Cabaye, Gouffran, Sissoko, Gutierrez, Cisse
