First team
Luke Cundle

Luke Cundle makes his first start for Swansea City with the midfielder the solitary change for today’s Championship clash with West Bromwich Albion. 

Cundle, who scored his first senior goal from the bench against Hull last time out, takes the place of Joe Allen.

The Wales international is not risked after recovering from a hamstring injury.

The Swans are otherwise unchanged from the 3-0 win over the Tigers, with Steven Benda retaining his place in goal.

Nathan Wood, Kyle Naughton and Ben Cabango make up the Swansea defence, with Matty Sorinola and Ryan Manning occupying the wing-back slots.

Captain Matt Grimes links up with Jay Fulton in midfield, with Cundle and Ollie Cooper providing support to Joel Piroe in the final third.

On the bench, there is a return for Joel Latibeaudiere following the shoulder injury he suffered against Millwall in August.

West Brom: David Button, Darnell Furlong, Conor Townsend, Dara O'Shea, Tom Rogic, Jake Livermore (captain), Grady Diangana, Erik Pieters, Jed Wallace, John Swift, Brandon Thomas-Asante.
