Myhill replaces injured Foster

20 October 2014

England stopper misses out due to calf complaint

BOAZ Myhill has been handed his first Barclays Premier League start for ten months as Albion entertain Manchester United at The Hawthorns (ko 8pm).

The goalkeeper starts his first league match since Albion's 1-0 defeat at Cardiff in December 2013 and replaces Ben Foster, who misses tonight’s clash due to a calf complaint sustained in training. 

It is hoped the England international returns to contention in time for Saturday's visit of Crystal Palace.

It is one of two changes for Alan Irvine from the side beaten 2-1 at Liverpool prior to the international break.

Andre Wisdom, ineligible to face his parent club at Anfield, returns at right-back as Cristian Gamboa drops back to the bench.

Albion: Myhill, Wisdom, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli, Gardner, Brunt, Morrison, Dorrans, Sessegnon, Berahino. 
Subs: Daniels, Gamboa, McAuley, Mulumbu, Blanco, Ideye, Anichebe. 

Man Utd: De Gea, Rafael, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Blind, Herrera, Januzaj, Mata, Di Maria, van Persie.
Subs: Lindegaard, Smalling, Carrick, Fellaini, Fletcher, Young, Falcao.

Referee: Mike Dean (Cheshire)
