Brunt set up both goals in Saturday's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Brunt curled a corner on to James Morrison's head to put West Brom ahead very early on before passing to ball in Craig Gardner's path for the second goal. Brunt has eight assists this season and, despite being moved to left back, is a constant threat from set pieces.

Brunt grabbed a goal and an assist in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Burnley.

Brunt started the West Brom comeback just after half time by heading in Callum McManaman's cross before he turned provider for Brown Ideye's 67th minute header. Brunt now has a team-high five assists and will look to reach eight by the time the season is over.

Brunt (hamstring) will return for Saturday's trip to QPR, manager Alan Irvine told the Express & Star.

Brunt (hamstring) is expected to be among the substitutes for the trip to the capital. “Brunty trained yesterday...I would expect him back for the weekend," Albion manager Alan Irvine said. The club captain has been hampered by injuries this season yet has still managed to tally four assists.

Brunt (hamstring) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against Aston Villa, according to the official club website

Brunt (hamstring) misses the game after sitting out last weekend's game at Hull City. "Chris won’t be fit for the game," manager Alan Irvine said. James Morrison will continue to deputise for the team captain. Brunt has four assists on the season despite being dogged by injury problems.

Brunt grabbed his fourth assist of the season in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Brunt's corner was headed home by Victor Anichebe in the 51st minute. The winger now has four assists on the season and next week's game against Leicester City represents a good chance for him to add to this.

Brunt overcame a groin injury to grab an assist in Monday's 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Brunt played in striker Saido Berahino in the 66th minute who made no mistake with the finish. Brunt returned home early from international duty and only resumed training over the weekend. The winger now has three assists on the season and the weekend's clash with Crystal Palace presents a good chance to embellish that number.

Brunt (groin) has yet to resume training after returning from international duty with a groin injury, manager Alan Irvine reported to the official club website.

Brunt (groin) will train on Saturday and manager Alan Irvine is hopeful he won't miss Monday's game against Manchester United. "Chris Brunt was the only one who came back with a problem but we're hopeful. He came back early and fortunately that gave us time to work with him," Irvine said. "He hasn't trained with us yet but he will join us tomorrow." The club captain has already posted two assists this season and, if he's fit, a suspect Man Utd defence presents a good chance to built on that total.

Brunt (groin) has returned home from international duty after suffering a groin injury, according to the Express and Star.

Brunt picked up the injury prior to Saturday's game against the Faroe Islands and it was enough to rule him out of Northern Ireland's game in Greece on Tuesday. West Brom don't play next until the trip to Manchester United next Monday and there's a chance he could be fit enough for the game. Brunt has two assists already this season and a shaky United defence presents a good opportunity to add to his haul.
