West Bromwich Albion make three changes for this afternoon's match with Swansea City as Romelu Lukaku, Chris Brunt and Billy Jones all start for the Baggies.

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke has decided to recall Romelu Lukaku for this afternoon's match against Swansea City in the Premier League.

Lukaku was ineligible to play against his parent club Chelsea last weekend but makes the starting XI at the expense of Shane Long, who is out with an ankle problem.

Billy Jones comes in for Steven Reid at right-back, while Chris Brunt replaces Marc-Antoine Fortune.

Swansea boss Michael Laudrup has decided to stick with Luke Moore in attack after his goal against Newcastle United last time out.

Moore partners Michu in attack, while Garry Monk continues to start in central defence for the injured Chico Flores.

West Brom: Foster, Jones, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Yacob, Mulumbu; Dorrans, Morrison, Brunt, Lukaku

Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Monk, Williams, Davies, Ki, de Guzman, Hernandez, Routledge, Michu, Moore
