West Bromwich Albion

Last updated: Tue 14 May 2019 22:05
In Brief

Frustrated after Saturday's defeat. Hal Robson-Kanu and Dwight Gayle both banned. Gareth Barry and Jake Livermore doubtful.

Looking Back

Were winning 1-0 in first leg on Saturday thanks to Dwight Gayle's 24th of the season before a disastrous final 20 minutes.

Albion ended up losing 2-1 and then had Gayle sent off, somewhat harshly. Gayle's season is now over and he is likely to be a big miss.

Looking Ahead

Not only is Gayle suspended but Hal Robson-Kanu is missing too. Jacob Murphy would seem likely to come into the reckoning.

Despite their bad end to Saturday, this tie is far from over and West Brom know it can turn quickly.

Gareth Barry and Jake Livemore are both unlikely to feature in this game.

Points of Interest

West Brom had 12 wins, seven draws and four defeats at home during the regular season.

Aston Villa

Last updated: Tue 14 May 2019 22:05
In Brief

Aston Villa have narrow advantage. Orjan Nyland and Tom Carroll injured. James Chester doubtful.

Looking Back

Dramatic turnaround on Saturday with superb finish to earn slender lead going into second leg.

Conor Hourihane was an inspired sub by Dean Smith on Saturday and he scored the opener.

Tammy Abraham scored the second from the spot. He now has 26 goals for the campaign, scoring in the last three.

Looking Ahead

Hourihane is likely to come in for Glenn Whelan, who gifted West Brom their goal on Saturday. Other changes unlikely but cannot be discounted.

Orjan Nyland and Tom Carroll remain out while James Chester is unlikely to play.

Points of Interest

Have nine wins, eight draws and six defeats on the road this term.
