Gamboa starts at Anfield

One enforced change from Spurs and Clarets victories

CRISTIAN Gamboa has been handed his full Barclays Premier League debut for Albion in today's clash against Liverpool at Anfield (ko 3pm).

The Costa Rica international right-back, having made three league appearances off the bench, comes in for Andre Wisdom, who is ineligible under the terms of his season-long loan move from the Reds.

Otherwise, head coach Alan Irvine selects the same starting XI as the one which recorded back-to-back league victories against Tottenham and Burnley.

Gamboa’s promotion from the bench means his spot in the matchday 18 is taken by Chris Baird, who returns after illness.  

Foster, Gamboa, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli, Dorrans, Morrison, Gardner, Brunt, Sessegnon, Berahino.
Subs: Myhill (gk), McAuley, Mulumbu, Blanco, Yacob, Baird, Samaras.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Manquillo, Lovren, Skrtel, Moreno, Gerrard, Henderson, Lallana, Coutinho, Sterling, Lambert.
Subs: Jones, Toure, Johnson, Lucas, Markovic, Borini, Balotelli.

Referee: Michael Oliver (Northumberland)
