We welcome West Brom to the Boleyn Ground today in a clash I would say is our first ‘must-win’ fixture of the campaign.

We’ve only picked up one point from our last three outings, following a run of seven league games unbeaten and the last thing we need is a run of bad form that sees us slip further and further down the league with each passing week.

Last week’s embarrassment at Spurs saw skipper Mark Noble pick up his fifth booking of the season, which means he’ll have to sit out this afternoon’s game.

When asked about who would come in for Noble against West Brom, Slaven Bilic revealed he’s torn between Alex Song and Pedro Obiang.

Both are just returning from injury but both are more than capable of doing a job – some would argue both would do a better job than Noble anyway!

So we took to Twitter to ask fans who they’d like to see start alongside Cheikhou Kouyate in the middle of the park on Sunday, and there really was only one winner…

A huge 71% of the 319 fans who took part in the poll want Alex Song to start against West Brom.

Do you agree? Or would you rather see Pedro Obiang given a go? Let us know via the comments section below…
