Field sidelined by knee injury

Sam Field in action at Everton

Slaven Bilić will be without Sam Field for “four to five weeks” after the midfielder suffered an injury to his left knee. 

The 22-year-old has made five appearances for Albion this season having spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Charlton. 

And the Baggies boss admits the timing of Field’s absence is “unfortunate” after he had “proved himself” to be a valuable member of the first-team squad.  

“Sam is unavailable because during the international break he got injured in training,” Bilić confirmed. “It’s nothing major, he twisted his knee a bit, but it will be a few weeks. 

“Unfortunately, he’s going to be out for four, maybe even five, weeks. He’s getting better but that is the reason he is out. 

“He proved himself during pre-season and he has become a very important player for our squad. He’s almost played in every game until he got injured. It shows that competition for places is open.”
