West Brom’s first game back in the Premier League is a home fixture against Leicester City.
West Brom stumbled over the line last season, however edged out Brentford for the final promotion spot from the Championship.
They have had a relatively quiet transfer window thus far, with the highlights being permanent deals for both Grady Diangana and Matheus Pereira.
Leicester City struggled badly after lockdown and dropped from third to fifth last term. As a result they missed out on what would have been just a second season of Champions League football.
Left-back Ben Chilwell has joined Chelsea, however they have already replaced the England international with Timothy Castagne.
West Brom have a poor recent record against Leicester, winning just one of the last seven between the two.
Leicester City thrashed the Baggies 4-1 in the last meeting, with Jamie Vardy scoring a contender for goal of the season in the romp.

Conor Townsend and Kenneth Zohore are both injury doubts for the Baggies.
Grady Diangana’s deal has been made permanent and he is expected to go straight into the team.
Wilfred Ndidi is likely to start in central defence with four set to miss out for the visitors.
James Maddison is a doubt and is very unlikely to be deemed fit enough to start.
