West Brom boss Tony Pulis says he faces a difficult decision over whether to recall top scorer Salomon Rondon or stick with Hal Robson-Kanu, who scored against Southampton.

Fellow forward Saido Berahino will again not be included as he continues to improve his fitness.

Hull head coach Mike Phelan has no new injury or suspension concerns.

Dieumerci Mbokani and Ahmed Elmohamady will be involved before heading off to the Africa Cup of Nations.
