Nacer Chadli is back and, due to Salomon Rondon's absence, could be moved up to a forward role against Watford this weekend.

For those who have been frustrated by Chadli's injury, consider this potential compensation for your patience. With Salomon Rondon out with tonsillitis and Saido Berahino still depressed/out of shape/out of favor, Chadli is the logical candidate to slot into the center forward role. It could be a nice fantasy return for the Belgian international.

Salomon Rondon will miss West Brom's Week 14 match at home against Watford after being diagnosed with tonsillitis this week.

The target forward will miss the Week 14 match which will probably result in Nacer Chadli being moved into a forward role against the Hornets. With James Morrison and Matt Phillips both playing well in attacking midfield roles the return of Chadli was already going to cause Tony Pulis to make some hard decisions with Rondon entrenched as the center forward. For Week 14, the path seems fairly straight forward with Chadli robust enough to take on Rondon's role. Beyond Week 14, the path becomes less clear.

Gareth McAuley scored a first half goal but it didn't stand up as Hull City came back for a 1-1 draw.

It was a less-than-entertaining match from the KCOM Stadium as both sides struggled to create chances. A Matt Phillips corner found its way to Gareth McAuley for the opener in the first half. Tony Pulis' side couldn't make it stand up though as Michael Dawson touched home a Robert Snodgrass free kick for the equalizer that ended the scoring.

Having already missed four matches, Nacre Chadli has yet to be cleared for action against Hull City on Saturday.

The highs of Chadli's early season performances have been muted somewhat after he has missed the last few matches out injured. His return is further complicated by West Brom's excellent Week 12 performance that saw James Morrison ignite a four goal attack. Chadli should start but exactly where he plays is less certain assuming he does return this week.

West Bromwich Albion returned from the international break with a 4-0 beat down of Burnley.

Matt Phillips and Salomon Rondon both contributed a goal and an assist and James Morrison contributed his first goal since coming back from his long-term injury. It may not have shown up in the stats but Morrison was the man of the match as he was involved in three of the four Albion goals even if he was never credited with an assist. Fantasy managers may want to consider grabbing Morrison if he's still available on waivers in draft and auction leagues.

The year has only gotten worse for West Brom's Saido Berahino as the forward was sent back to France for conditioning camp.

The former West Brom prodigy has endured a difficult 2016 that has seen him at odds with the club management and manager Tony Pulis over failed transfers and playing time. The 23-year-old, who hasn't scored for the club since February, spent the international break in the south of France to complete a fitness program, but confirmed he will now return after missing out on making the squad in the last four matches. In a statement released by the club, Berahino apologized to the club and fans and promised to regain his form: "I have had a good, constructive talk with Tony Pulis and the Club’s senior management and we all agree this is the best way forward for me. This last year has been the most difficult of my career and it has left me short of the form and fitness required for the Premier League...I want them to know that I intend to do everything I can to repay that faith while also hopefully winning over those who doubt me."

Nacer Chadli is the only injury concern for Tony Pulis ahead of Monday’s game against Burnley at the Hawthorns.

The summer signing from Spurs who has been a revelation since his arrival, four goals and two assists, went under the knife earlier this month to tidy up a niggling cartilage complaint. Chadli will train outside for the first time on Thursday and Pulis will leave any decision regarding his involvement until the last moment. Otherwise, the Baggies boss is not expecting any last-minute surprises. Saido Berahino has returned from his training camp in France: "We are pleased fitness-wise, the next step is for him to get some games and hopefully that will happen in the next few weeks." Meanwhile, Salomon Rondon [tight hamstring] "will be fine" and defender Jonas Olsson is also available following his recovery from a minor muscular issue.

Keeping Salomon Rondon off international duty is set to have him available to face Burnley next weekend.

The forward was set to join Venezuela during the international break, but was held out by the club after feeling tightness in his hamstring in the win against Leicester City, which now looks to be a shrewd decision ahead of Week 12. Said West Brom's director of performance Dr. Mark Gillett: "He had a tightening of his hamstring towards the end of the game on Sunday. Salomon has played an awful lot of games, and done an awful lot of travelling, he’s had a tough three months. He’s stayed with us so he can recover and be fully fit. It’s important that we keep him here. He’s having a few days off right now but like Chadli, he’s due back this weekend."

West Brom's director of performance, Dr. Mark Gillett confirmed Nacer Chadli is in line to return from injury next weekend.

Gillett said Chadli missed the match against Leicester after undergoing a minor operation to remove cartilage around his meniscus. But the former Spurs midfielder is in contention to face Burnley next weekend: "With this being the last international break before the winter we wanted to get it done so he went for surgery in Belgium which has gone extremely well. He should be available for selection for the Burnley game. He’s progressing well and he’s in contention. Whether he’s picked for that game after the last result we’ll wait and see."

Salomon Rondon will miss the World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Ecuador after suffering a hamstring injury in the win over Leicester City.

The Venezuela striker completed 90 minutes at the King Power and didn’t appear to be in any obvious discomfort as he chased down a ball deep into injury time. But, West Brom have confirmed Rondon won’t be joining his international teammates due to a muscular injury. The Baggies remain cautiously ‘optimistic’ that he will be ready for the visit of Burnley in game week twelve. With Nacer Chadli, a slight doubt after undergoing knee surgery, and Saido Berahino currently attending a fitness camp in France due to concerns over his weight, Tony Pulis will need last season’s top scorer. West Brom also confirm that they expect James McClean to recover in time for Ireland's game in Vienna on Saturday. The winger is working away from the main group after arriving with a slight back niggle which he aggravated in training last week.

Matt Phillips scored a late winner as West Brom took three points from the reigning champions at the King Power Stadium.

West Brom were the better side for most of the day. After a scoreless first half, James Morrison scored in the 52nd minute. After a quick equalizer it was left to Phillips to break the deadlock. Phillips has missed out on a great chance earlier so he will be relieved to have gotten another chance.

Nacer Chadli will miss Albion's Week 11 trip to Leicester City after having a minor knee surgery.

Since coming over from Spurs at the transfer deadline, Chadli has been Tony Pulis' best attacker. Missing the Belgian for a difficult test against the reigning champions will be hard to compensate for. It will be up to some combination of James Morrison, Chris Brunt and Jon Leko to make up for Chadli's attacking drive with Saido Berahino still isolated from the squad as he rebuilds his fitness.

West Bromwich Albion could only sit back and watch as Sergio Aguero and Manchester City found their groove in a 4-0 loss at The Hawthorns.

West Brom faced an early two-goal deficit after Aguero got on the scoreboard with a brace in under 30 minutes to see off his three-match goalless drought; while manager Pep Guardiola saw his career-high six-match (in all competitions) winless streak end. Tony Pulis won't be happy with the result after signing on for another year as the club could only manage one shot on target against City. James McClean set up multiple chances down the wing in the final 15 minutes but both Salomon Rondon and Gareth McAuley saw their shots go just wide. Unfortunately for McClean, the winger will miss the club's next match due after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.
