Aaron Connolly has featured for Albion in pre-season

The start of the campaign may have arrived a little too soon for Graham Potter' s team who looked a little under-cooked in the final pre-season friendly against La Liga opponents Getafe last Saturday..

Striker Danny Welbeck remains out with a hamstring injury, while Tariq Lamptey will be unavailable until after the September international as his hamstring continues to cause problems.

Defenders Adam Webster and Lewis Dunk will hope to be fit having had their fitness issues in pre-season but Dan Burn is ruled out after picking up a knee injury in a friendly at Luton.

Breakthrough season last time out and had a great experience with the Spain squad at the Euros. Big season ahead.

Moises Caicedo is also unavailable having sustained a knee injury will playing for Ecuador at the Copa America last month.
