Albion line-up for Foxes clash

Baggies unchanged from Palace draw

ALBION head coach Alan Irvine named an unchanged starting XI for today’s Barclays Premier League clash at Leicester (ko 3pm) from the side which drew against Crystal Palace last weekend.

The Baggies showed ten changes for Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup defeat at Bournemouth, with centre-back Craig Dawson the sole survivor from the Eagles draw.

But Irvine has now returned to the XI who came from two goals down at The Hawthorns seven days ago.

There are two changes on the bench, with Claudio Yacob and Georgios Samaras replacing Sebastian Blanco and Brown Ideye respectively.

Albion: Foster, Wisdom, Dawson, Lescott, Pocognoli, Brunt, Gardner, Dorrans, Morrison, Sessegnon, Berahino.
Subs: Myhill, Gamboa, McAuley, Yacob, Mulumbu, Anichebe, Samaras. 

Leicester: Schmeichel, De Laet, Konchesky, Drinkwater, Morgan (c), James, Vardy, King, Cambiasso, Wasilewski, Nugent. 
Subs: Smith, Moore, Ulloa, Hammond, Mahrez, Wood, Powell. 

Referee: Stuart Attwell
