Double injury boost for Baggies

But Jones likely to be out for a month

STEPHANE Sessegnon and Claudio Yacob are both in contention for Saturday’s home date with champions Manchester United (ko 12.45pm) – but Billy Jones will miss out.

Sessegnon was left out of the Baggies’ last match against Fulham as a precaution after being sidelined for six weeks with a groin problem.

Yacob also missed the 1-1 draw against the Cottagers after suffering a hamstring problem against Chelsea.

But both players will be involved in full training this week ahead of the United clash.

The news is less positive on Jones. The right-back limped out of the Fulham game with a hamstring tear, an injury which usually sidelines a player for at least a month.
