Saido Berahino could make his first West Brom start since October at home to Newcastle on Monday.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis has promised to rotate over the festive period and Berahino, who came on for the final half-hour of Saturday’s 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat at Swansea, seems certain to enter the equation alongside Stephane Sessegnon and Callum McManaman as Albion seek to end a winless five-game run.

Suspended pair Salomon Rondon and James McClean remain out, the visit of fellow strugglers Newcastle being the second game of their three-match bans.

Provisional squad: Myhill, Lindegaard, Gamboa, Chester, Dawson, Olsson, McAuley, Evans, Brunt, Fletcher, Yacob, McManaman, Gardner, Gnabry, Morrison, Sessegnon, Berahino, Lambert, Anichebe.
