Team News: Ben Foster starts for West Bromwich Albion

Ben Foster is passed fit to start for West Bromwich Albion in their trip to Southampton.

Ben Foster has been passed fit to start for West Bromwich Albion in their trip to Southampton this evening.

The keeper missed the Baggies' 1-1 draw at Leicester City on Monday night with a knee injury - a game which saw his understudy, Boaz Myhill, pick up a hamstring injury.

Foster is back between the posts this evening, however, while Myhill is deemed fit enough to take a place on the bench.

Tony Pulis names an otherwise-unchanged side, with Jay Rodriguez, Salomon Rondon and Nacer Chadli leading the attack in a 4-3-3 formation.

Jake Livermore, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Gareth Barry are in the midfield, while Craig Dawson, Ahmed Hegazi, Jonny Evans and Kieran Gibbs make up the back four.

As for the hosts, Mauricio Pellegrino opts to make one change following the 2-2 draw with Newcastle United last Sunday, bringing in Steven Davis for Nathan Redmond in the middle of the park.

Manolo Gabbiadini, who bagged both goals against the Magpies, continues up front alongside Shane Long, while Redmond joins Mario Lemina, Oriol Romeu and Dusan Tadic in midfield.

Skipper Virgil van Dijk partners Maya Yoshida in the heart of the defence, with Cedric Soares on the right, Ryan Bertrand on the left and Fraser Forster in goal.

Southampton: Forster; Soares, Van Dijk, Yoshida, Bertrand; Davis, Lemina, Romeu, Tadic; Long, Gabbiadini
Subs: McCarthy, Hoedt, McQueen, Ward-Prowse, Boufal, Redmond, Austin

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Dawson, Hegazi, Evans, Gibbs; Livermore, Krychowiak, Barry; Rodriguez, Rondon, Chadli
Subs: Myhill, Nyom, Yacob, Phillips, Brunt, McClean, McAuley
