West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis has concerns over four key players as he prepares his team for Sunderland’s visit to The Hawthorns.

Jonny Evans, James Morrison, Saido Berahino and Salomon Rondon are all doubts, with the quartet each rated a 50-50 chance to be fit for tomorrow’s return to Barclays Premier League action.

Former Sunderland loan star Evans is still struggling with the groin strain he suffered against Crystal Palace prior to the international break, while Morrison has an ankle injury and Berahino has picked up a knock in training.

Rondon did not arrive back in England until late this week after featuring in Venezuela’s two World Cup qualifying games.

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