3 signings start, Sawyers dropped: How West Brom’s XI may look after domestic deadline – opinion

West Bromwich Albion will surely be looking to the end of the domestic transfer window to secure a new striker and if they do, we’ve predicted how Slaven Bilic could line up his starting XI from there on out.

The Baggies have made new fewer than six new additions this summer but they have started the Premier League season with just one point from their opening four matches.

It leaves the Croatian with plenty to think about over this international break, so if he gets his reported top target, this is how Albion could look against Burnley…

Sam Johnstone is one man who will certainly keep his place as West Brom’s first-choice goalkeeper but will Bilic stick or twist with a back three?

It’s likely that he reverts back to the formation that won them promotion from the Championship, so Kieran Gibbs comes in at left-back with Darnell Furlong taking up a place on the other flank.

Whilst through the middle is likely to be first-choice pairing of Kyle Bartley and Semi Ajayi.

The changes started to begin in midfield where skipper Jake Livermore holds an anchorman role with summer arrivals Filip Krovinovic and Conor Gallagher taking up a slightly advanced position.

It means Matheus Pereira is pushed out wide with Grady Diangana also played out wide.

Then it comes down to Albion pushing through a deal for Huddersfield Town striker Karlan Grant – the Express & Star believe he could join on a £5m loan which would only be made permanent for an additional £13m if they stave off relegation.

AND in other news, West Brom must sanction £10m move to finally end striker headache…
