Our lineup is out, and Tim Sherwood is still out here doing his thing.

That is a very strong bench and a relatively meh starting lineup for West Brom. I'd rather not face any of those players sitting on the bench. Meanwhile, Sherwood has decided to go with Lewis Holtby in place of the injured Mousa Dembele, not Nabil Bentaleb or Etienne Capoue. Erik Lamela drops to the bench for Nacer Chadli, which isn't surprising given their respective performances against Southampton.
