Iran are treading carefully with Albion winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh as he gets back to full fitness after injury.

He played no part in yesterday's 2-1 friendly win against Qatar in Doha, the final warm-up for Carlos Queiroz's side before the Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

Jahanbakhsh has not played since suffering a hamstring injury at Everton in November and suffering a setback during his recovery.

Iran face Yemen in their opening group game in the Asian Cup next Monday in Abu Dhabi.
