Slaven Bilic’s West Brom look to be making a serious push for promotion this season, but the recent form needs to be looked at. The Baggies again lost on Monday evening, and whilst they still sit at the top of the Championship, the fans weren’t happy with the defeat, or indeed the starting lineup.
Here’s our team to take on @stokecity.

Rotation in England’s second tier is key. The games come thick and fast and it truly is a feat if one player manages to complete the entire season starting every game, so it’s inevitable that the Baggies were going to have to mix things up sooner or later.
The fans, though, weren’t having it and last night they found themselves increasingly frustrated to see the likes of Ahmed Hegazi and Conor Townsend in the team for the loss at home to Stoke, and you’d imagine that Bilic will revert back to his best team for his next game.

Is there any reason why Townsend keeps getting in this team seriously?? I’d take the under 23 left back over him any day! even Dara O’Shea!! The man is garbage

Not what I’d gone for. Dropping a guy who’s scored 2 in 2

I would’ve started Zohore tonight, harsh on him to leave him out

Townsend and Hegazi is worrying.

Why drop semi

The Baggies will be desperate to turn their form around and will be keen for Bilic to make some changes.
