Leandro Trossard is in contention to make the Albion matchday squad to face Aston Villa.

But head coach Graham Potter does not expect him to start.

Trossard has been out since the end of August with groin injury picked up on international duty.

Potter said today: “Leo has been training with us this week.

“We need to be careful. He is probably not ready to start at the weekend, I think that’s fair to say.

“But he is training with the group and we will make a decision this afternoon and tomorrow as to whether he is in the group.

“It is nice we have got numbers.”

Davy Propper is fit to start if selected after missing the two most recent league games.

Shane Duffy (calf) is also available after proving his fitness while away with the Republic of Ireland.

Bernardo and long-term absentee Jose Izquierdo are the only players ruled out of the Villa clash.
