Myhill in goal, Long available for Baggies

West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill will again deputise for Ben Foster, who is recovering from groin surgery, in tomorrow’s home Barclays Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Republic of Ireland striker has also been included in the squad after coming off at half time in the friendly international against Greece with a tight hamstring.

Albion are sweating over the fitness of defender Gareth McAuley, who suffered a hamstring injury playing for Northern Ireland against Azerbaijan, with Gabriel Tamas on stand-by to deputise.

But they are more hopeful midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu will be fit after a hamstring injury led to him withdrawing from midweek action with Congo. On-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is ineligible to face his parent club.

Provisional squad: Myhill, Daniels, Jones, McAuley, Olsson, Tamas, Dawson, Jara Reyes, Popov, Ridgewell, Mulumbu, Yacob, Brunt Dorrans, Morrison, El Ghanassy, Gera, Fortune, Odemwingie, Long, Rosenberg.
