The Baggies, who are still seeking their first win back in the top-flight, lie 18th after losing five and drawing three of their opening eight fixtures – one of them a helter-skelter 3-3 with Chelsea.
And before the game, boss Slaven Bilic will be eagerly awaiting updates on three important players, all of whom tested positive for COVID-19 during November.
Defender Branislav Ivanovic and key playmaker Matheus Pereira were forced to self-isolate prior to the Baggies’ last outing, a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on 8 November.
The pair’s quarantine from the rest of the squad is set to end on Wednesday, however, meaning they could face the Reds at the weekend.
