Gareth McAuley is likely to return to the Albion starting line-up for the finale against Swansea after missing out against Manchester City.
McAuley seems to be getting better with age. At 37-years-old, the West Brom center back started 36 Premier League matches (with a chance for 37 on Sunday) and seems to be thriving in Tony Pulis' defense-first system despite his age. With Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson both younger it may be that McAuley starts to be phased out in favor of younger players soon but based on what we saw this season he still has something significant to offer and he'll have a chance to show that off one more time after recovering from a thigh injury that kept him out of Albion's trip to the Etihad.
