First team

Roger East will take charge of Swansea City’s Premier League fixture at West Brom on Saturday (3pm).

East, from Wiltshire, will be the man in the middle for a Swans game for the second time this season.

The 52-year-old was also in control when the Swans lost 1-0 at West Ham back in September.

Last season, East refereed the Swans' 2-1 victory over Southampton at the Liberty in January, while he also took charge of the 3-1 win against Liverpool in May 2016.

His first ever Premier League game featured the Swans, when Sunderland visited the Liberty in a 2-2 draw in September 2012.

East will be assisted at The Hawthorns by Simon Beck and Derek Eaton, while David Coote will be the fourth official.
