All eyes will be on Roy Hodgson as he invites former club Liverpool to face his West Brom side.
After a shaky start Kenny Dalglish's men are gaining momentum, winning four of their last six in the league as they look to continue their push for a Europa League place.
In contrast Hodgson and the Baggies are desperate to keep their heads above water in a crowded bottom half, sitting 16th and just a single point off the drop zone.
The reverse fixture in August serves as an indication of just how much has changed at both clubs this season, with Hodgson's Liverpool beating Roberto Di Matteo's Baggies 1-0 courtesy of a Fernando Torres strike.
Hodgson has relatively few injury worries ahead of the game, despite long-term absentee Pablo Ibanez still sidelined with a hamstring injury.
The Baggies are still without the influential Graham Dorrans in the centre of the park as the Scot continues his struggle to shake off an ankle injury.
The manager admitted he is unhappy with the Mexican national team for subjecting striker Carlos Vela to a 12,000-mile round trip during the recent international break, despite barely playing the youngster.
Dalglish will have a number of selection decisions to make, with Steven Gerrard returning to full training following groin surgery.
Although a start for the skipper is unlikely, one man who will look to feature is Luis Suarez, the striker handing his team a huge boost by returning from a groin injury that saw him sit out the international break.
Right-back Martin Kelly had looked in contention for a place in the team but suffered a setback in training following his return from a hamstring injury.
Possible starting XIs:
West Brom: Carson, Shorey, Scharner, Meite, Olsson, Reid, Thomas, Morrison, Brunt, Mulumbu, Odemwingie.
Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Skrtel, Agger, Meireles, Spearing, Lucas, Kuyt, Suarez, Carroll.
