The match comes too soon for long-term absentees Nacer Chadli and Daniel Sturridge (both thigh).
Burnley may give goalkeeper Tom Heaton (shoulder) one more week before considering him for a first-team recall.
Scott Arfield has been ruled out but Johann Berg Gudmundsson is expected to be fit after a minor knock on international duty.
West Bromwich Albon have won nine of their last 10 home league matches against Burnley (D1), winning the last two each by a 4-0 scoreline.
