Will this be the first Albion XI sent out by Roberto De Zerbi?

The Italian head coach sends out his XI to face Liverpool today.

He is without Enock Mwepu and has said Adam Lallana and Tariq Lamptey are unlikely to start.

Albion kicked off with a back four at Anfield last season and De Zerbi is know to prefer that set-up.

He has been impressed by Danny Welbeck, who looks near certain to led the attack.

If there is to be a surprise, could it come from Levi Colwill.

De Zerbi mentioned the defender on loan from Chelsea without being asked about him at his press conference yesterday.

Alexis Mac Allister had the most taxing international window in term of travel but De Zerbi reported he was in good shape back at the training ground on Thursday.

Possible Albion XI (4-2-3-1): Sanchez; Veltman, Webster, Dunk, Estupinan; Mac Allister, Caicedo; March, Gross Trossard; Welbeck.
