Kyle Bartley set for West Brom return in Championship showdown

Slaven Bilic could include defender Kyle Bartley when his West Brom squad host Leeds in a table-topping Sky Bet Championship clash on New Year’s Day.

The centre back is fit to return having watched Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Middlesbrough from the bench after recovering from an ankle injury.

Midfielder Grady Diangana remains doubtful with a back issue.

Kieran Gibbs could also miss out again after leaving the pitch during the 1-1 draw with Barnsley on Boxing Day and consequently missing the Middlesbrough game.

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds are tied with West Brom on points but top the table on goal difference.

The squad could still be missing Pablo Hernandez  who is sidelined with a hamstring issue.

Adam Forshaw is also doubtful as he continues to struggle with a long-term hip injury.

Arsenal are expected to recall Eddie Nketiah from his loan spell at Elland Road during the January transfer window, meaning an appearance at The Hawthorns could be his 14th and final game in a Leeds shirt.
