Mel makes one change to starting XI

PEPE Mel makes one change to the side that drew 3-3 with Cardiff last weekend as Jonas Olsson earns an instant recall in defence after serving a two-game ban.

The Sweden international captains the side, with Craig Dawson the man to drop to the bench.

The Baggies are also boosted by the return of Victor Anichebe among the substitutes after missing the Bluebirds clash due to a hamstring injury.

Chris Hughton makes two changes to the Canaries team that lost 3-0 at Swansea last Saturday.

Joseph Yobo and Gary Hooper come in for Ryan Bennett, who is left out altogether, and the benched Ricky van Wolfswinkel respectively.

NORWICH: Ruddy, Martin, Yobo, Bassong (c), M Olsson, Snodgrass, Howson, Tettey, Hoolahan, Elmander, Hooper. Subs: Bunn (gk), Whittaker, Johnson, van Wolfswinkel, Gutierrez, Becchio, Redmond.
