Alireza Jahanbakhsh is expected to miss Albion's trip to Crystal Palace.

The Iran international suffered a thigh problem in the Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester United ahead of the international break.

He is likely to be back in contention when West Brom visit the Amex on October 26.

Jahanbakhsh has not started a Premier League game this season but has been an option off the bench.
