Albion have brought three big guns back into their starting XI at the Amex.

Kaoru Mitoma, Joao Pedro and Pascal Gross all return to the initial line-up to face Brentford.

They went on as part of a quadruple substitution around the hour mark in Sunday’s defeat by Chelsea.

Joel Veltman and Evan Ferguson drop to the bench and Adam Lallana is not involved.

While the formation has not been confirmed, it would appear Jack Hinshelwood and skipper Gross could fill the full-back berths with Facundu Buonanotte in a No.10 role.

Luca Barrington is among the youngsters on the bench.

For Brentford, Mads Roerslev and Shandon Baptiste replace Christian Norgaard (suspended) and Yoane Wissa.

Former Albion striker Neal Maupay starts for the Bees.

Albion: Steele; Hinshelwood, van Hecke, Igor, Gross; Gilmour, Baleba; Adingra, Buonanotte, Mitoma; Joao Pedro. Subs: Verbruggen, Veltman, Milner, Kavanagh, Moder, Barrington, Baker-Boaitey, Ferguson, O’Mahony.

Brentford: Flekken; Roerslev, Pinnock, Mee, Janelt; Onyeka, Baptiste, Yarmoliuk; Mbeumo, Maupay, Ghoddos. Subs: Strakosha, Goode, Wissa, Zanka, Lewis-Potter, Damsgaard, Peart-Harris, Olakigbe, Adedokun.
