West Brom suffer a Hull City blow ahead of Sheffield Wednesday clash
Jake Livermore will have to sit out West Bromwich Albion’s meeting with Sheffield Wednesday at The Hawthorns after the international break after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season at Hull City.
With less than 20 minutes played, captain Livermore – back at his former club, where he made almost 150 appearances before leaving for the Baggies in the January transfer window of 2017, pulled back Tigers player Leonardo Lopes as the hosts looked to break, with the score goalless.
Five yellow cards in the league and cup means that it’s a one-match suspension and, with the midfielder already sitting on four, this was a game where he’d have to tread a disciplinary tightrope.

England international Livermore, though, was shown yellow by referee Mr Linington and it leaves Slaven Bilic with a decision to make when the Owls visit, on the other side of the international break.
Bilic will still be without Nathan Ferguson, too, who serves the final of his three-match ban after his red card in the recent 2-2 draw with Charlton.
Rekeem Harper, Gareth Barry, Chris Brunt and Semi Ajayi are all contenders to slot into the midfield.
