Time is running out for Stoke boss Mark Hughes
Kick-off 3pm Saturday
Hughes could point to West Brom - with no wins in four under Alan Pardew - as an example of the risks of sacking an established manager.
But Albion's recent performances away to Liverpool (0-0) and at home to Manchester United (1-2) have been decent and they could just have the edge in a contest where home advantage may not count for much.
West Brom draw no bet
1pt 6-4 Betfair, Paddy Power
Erik Pieters, Charlie Adam (both hip) and Kurt Zouma (hamstring) are doubts but Glen Johnson (knee) could feature.
Nacer Chadli (hip) and Matt Phillips (hamstring) could return and Craig Dawson (knee) is a doubt but James Morrison is out long-term.
Stoke have lost five of their last six matches.
