Albion will keep a close eye on Alexis Mac Allister after he suffered a bruising Carabao Cup night.

The Argentinian took a knee in the back during the win over Swansea.

It was the second time he had gone down during the tie.

Albion will monitor him closely but expect to see him moving more freely over the next two days.

They will hope to have him available for the game at Crystal Palace on Monday.


Mac Allister has been decisive off the bench away from home this season and scored a late equaliser as sub at Selhurst Park last term.

Albion will also weigh up whether Enock Mwepu will be involved at Palace after he withdrew from last night’s game during the warm-up with a groin issue.
