West Bromwich Albion will look to get over the disappointment from their draw against Leicester City when they face their next opponents Southampton in their ninth match of the Premier League this term.Tony Pulis is well aware of the fact that they will be facing another tough opponent in their next match and will need to play cautiously.

The Baggies are having a mixed campaign so far this term and will need to make the most of their next matches to go higher up the league table. They have drawn four matches so far this season but will be looking to win their next match against the Saints as they are aiming to finish in the top eight.

This is how West Brom might be lining up in their next match.

Defence

The Baggies are currently having a crisis in their lineup regarding the availability of a goalkeeper, with their three custodians in the form of Ben Foster, Boaz Myhill and Oliver Burke, all having minor injuries. With all of them uncertain to start in the match against Southampton, Pulis might have to turn to the West Brom Academy graduate Alex Palmer to stand beneath the crossbars.

Their backline being one of the best in the Premier League for the last few seasons, the Baggies are expected to start with the familiar four-man defence, including the likes of Craig Dawson, Ahmed Hegazi, Jonny Evans and Kieran Gibbs, who will have to be on their toes to keep the opponent strikers at bay.

Midfield

New signing Grezgorz Krychowiak has performed well for the Baggies this season, pairing with the most experienced player in Premier League history, Gareth Barry. They will be expected to dish out another solid performance in their next match against the Saints.

They will be aptly supported by another player, who is well accustomed to the conditions in the Premier League, Jake Livermore, playing a very important role in their midfield so far this season.

Attack

The Baggies are expected to start once again with a three-man forward line, consisting of Jay Rodriguez, Solomon Rondon and Nacer Chadli.

The Belgian forward scored their only goal in the last match against the Foxes that ended in a stalemate and will be keen to continue scoring. However, the others will have to fire as well to help their side to a much-needed win.

Here is how they might line up:
