Team News: Southampton, West Bromwich Albion both unchanged

Four Southampton players make their home debut as Ronald Koeman names an unchanged starting XI for the visit of West Bromwich Albion to St Mary's Stadium.

Ronald Koeman has included four summer signings in his starting XI for Southampton's first home game of the season, as they take on West Bromwich Albion at St Mary's Stadium this afternoon.

Fraser Forster starts in goal, while Ryan Bertrand lines up at left-back. Graziano Pelle will lead the Saints line, with Dusan Tadic taking up in an attacking midfield role as the home side have stuck with the same team that began their 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday.

Similarly, the visitors have named an unchanged team from last week, when they drew 2-2 at home with Sunderland.

The club's £10m record signing, Brown Ideye, will begin the match on the bench.

Southampton: Forster; Clyne, Fonte, Yoshida, Bertrand; Wanyama, Schneiderlin; Ward-Prowse, S. Davis, Tadic; Pelle

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Wisdom, Dawson, Olsson, Pocognoli; Mulumbu, Gardner, Berahino, Dorrans, Brunt; Anichebe
