West Brom play host to Liverpool this afternoon on the opening day of the 2012-13 Premier League season.
West Brom manager Steve Clarke has doubts over two key players following the midweek international friendlies. Scotland's James Morrison (ankle) and Sweden defender Jonas Olsson (knock) will both be assessed ahead of kick-off at The Hawthorns.
New signing Markus Rosenberg is unlikely to feature, while midfielder Graham Dorrans is on leave with his daughter in hospital due to meningitis.
Striker Shane Long is available and should start despite missing the Republic of Ireland's match with Serbia in midweek.
New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has named new signings Fabio Borini and Joe Allen in his squad and both should be involved.
Striker Borini is pushing for a start having impressed in pre-season, although midfielder Allen may have to settle for a place on the bench.
Joe Cole (hamstring) has recovered from the injury sustained in the Europa League qualifier against FC Gomel earlier this month.
