Anichebe In Line For West Brom, Palace Face-Off

–Pulis Tips Pardew For England Role, 

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

West Bromwich Albion are likely to hand Nigeria's Victor Anichebe a place in the Matchday squad in the game against  Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park today (Saturday).


The Albion manager Tony Pulis in Friday's press conference confirmed the players expected to be out for the Midlandsbut Anichebe was not among the players expected to miss the game. 


West Bromwich Albion will be without Gareth McAuley, Jonas Olsson and Salomon Rondon in Saturday lunchtime's Premier League match away at Crystal Palace. 


Pulis confirmed at his pre-match press conference that he was unlikely to risk the trio. James Chester is likely to start in place of Olsson, with Rickie Lambert in contention to join Saido Berahino up front in Rondon's absence. 

Ahead of today's clash, West Brom coach Tony Pulis believes Crystal Palace counterpart Alan Pardew has to be considered as a successor to England boss Roy Hodgson.


Pulis' side visit Pardew's Palace in the Premier League hoping to replicate the 2-0 win they earned at Selhurst Park last season.


With 12 points from seven games, Palace are impressing again in the early part of this term and sit seventh in the table.


"Knowing Roy he will want to do the Euros and the next World Cup, but if you're looking for the next England manager Pardew's got to be looked at. He would definitely come into the frame for me.


"He's done very well everywhere he's been. He's done a fantastic job at Newcastle and I don't think he got the credit he deserved. Now he's gone to Palace and picked it up."
