Premier League: West Brom v Crystal Palace team news

Goalkeeper Ben Foster is set to return to West Brom's starting line-up for Saturday'sPremier League fixture against Crystal Palace.

Foster missed Monday's 2-2 draw with Manchester United due to a calf injury but head coach Alan Irvine revealed he is back in training and "fine" ahead of the Eagles' visit.

Winger Silvestre Varela is still out after groin surgery while midfielder Claudio Yacob is in his native Argentina due to family illness. Defender Jonas Olsson is struggling with a niggling Achilles injury.

James McArthur and Scott Dann are both expected to miss Crystal Palace's trip to The Hawthorns.

McArthur and Dann are struggling with hip and knee injuries respectively while Damien Delaney is serving a one-match suspension after being sent off against Chelsea last weekend.

Delaney's absence could see Martin Kelly or Adrian Mariappa play in central defence as Palace look to avoid a third consecutive defeat.
