Team News: West Brom v Arsenal
West Brom will be missing skipper Chris Brunt for their game with Arsenal on Sunday.
Brunt has had his tonsils removed now as he is a potential candidate for the Great Britain Olympic squad, and wants to play at London 2012, if required by Stuart Pearce.
Albion assistant manager Keith Downing confirmed: “We know Chris might be considered for the Great Britain team.
“He has been stop-start with them (the tonsils) so the decision was taken to (remove them) now and it will give someone else the opportunity to play on Sunday.”
The Baggies also have doubts over leading scorer Peter Odemwingie and winger Jerome Thomas for a match the Gunners need to win to secure a Champions League spot.
Downing said: “Peter is doing rehab to try and get back before the weekend while Jerome has been out for the past couple of days with a virus.”
Squad: Foster, Daniels, Fulop, Jones, Olsson, McAuley, Dawson, Ridgewell, Shorey, Mulumbu, Scharner, Andrews, Thomas, Dorrans, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Long, Odemwingie, Hurst, Roofe, Berahino, Morrison.
