WBA v Sunderland preview
Stephane Sessegnon is in line to make his West Brom debut against his former employers Sunderland at The Hawthorns.
The Benin international has his work permit now in place and is in contention to start against his former club.
Victor Anichebe made his debut last time out against Fulham but he or Nicolas Anelka could make way for Sessegnon.
Morgan Amalfitano, who also made his bow at Craven Cottage, could also be dropped to the bench with fit-again James Morrison and loanee Scott Sinclair pushing for starts.
Strikers Shane Long (knee) and Matej Vydra (hamstring) remain doubtful for the match while Steven Reid, Zoltan Gera and George Thorne are still working their way back to fitness. Goalkeeper Ben Foster is recovering from surgery on his foot.
Sunderland have Italian star Emanuele Giaccherini available again after his hamstring problem kept him out of their 3-1 loss to Arsenal last week.
Giaccherini is set to replace Greek winger Charis Mavrias.
Club captain John O'Shea has served a one-match ban and is also likely to come into the starting XI.
Another player back in contention having been brought in from the wilderness is former skipper Lee Cattermole, who has not featured since the start of the year.
The former Middlesbrough man could come straight into Di Canio's side, while Wes Brown, who had returned to the bench against Arsenal, is out with a groin problem.
