West Bromwich Albion enter into the November international break in good spirits as our fine start to the 2019/20 Championship campaign under Slaven Bilic continues, as we remain sitting in top spot with a small advantage.

Having taken a narrow 1-0 victory over Hull City on Saturday, with a solitary Jake Livermore goal being enough to return all three points, our two point buffer remains intact in the second tier table, keeping us ahead of nearest chasers Preston North End and Leeds United, but heading towards football’s return and the clash with Sheffield Wednesday – we do have two problems.

Both Romaine Sawyers and Jake Livermore will be missing from the game having picked up their fifth booking of the year and will serve an automatic suspension, so one big topic of conversation amongst Baggies fans is how Bilic should pivot tactically.

Speaking to wba.co.uk following the game, the Croatian said.

“They are suspended for the Sheffield Wednesday game and that’s a blow for us. Both players have been instrumental for us from the start of the season. They are leaders. We have a good squad though. We have guys who always come on from the bench and do really well. It’s not ideal that we are missing both of them but at least we have plenty of time to think about what we want to do. We will find a solution for the Sheffield Wednesday game.”

With Bilic promising a ‘solution’ fans have offered up a couple of their own.
