Brunt picked up an assist in Sunday's 1-0 win at Tottenham.

Brunt floated in a corner that was headed home by James Morrison to give manager Alan Irvine a surprise win and it was a first assist of the season for the club captain. Fantasy owners can expect Brunt to chip in with at least five assists and a couple of goals this season.

Brunt was fit enough to start Saturday’s 2-0 defeat against Everton.

Northern Ireland international Brunt recovered well enough to start the game before being later withdrawn for the new signing Sebastian Blanco in the 70th minute. Current captain Brunt has made little impact in the fantasy scoring columns so far this season yet is still expected to pick up around five assists before the campaign is out.

Brunt (calf) should make the squad for Saturday’s game against Everton. “There was a little bit of concern about Chris Brunt, who had a tight calf, he’s trained today as well,” manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Brunt (calf) picked the injury up whilst on international duty with the Northern Ireland squad and it was less damaging than first thought. Brunt has been captaining the side thus far and has yet to pick up any assists so far this campaign with fantasy owners able to expect half a dozen at the most.

Brunt was booked during Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Southampton.

Brunt, who is the club captain, saw yellow for the first time this season and played for the second week running as a winger. Brunt had five assists last season and West Bromwich Albion’s two target-men in the shape of Victor Anichebe and Georgios Samaras will mean similar numbers this time out.

Brunt, who has missed the last four matches due to medial ligament damage he suffered in a game against Manchester United on March 8, could start Saturday's match against Tottenham if James Morrison is unable to play due to an ankle injury, the club's official web site reports.

Brunt will have a late fitness test, but it sounds like even if he's able to go, Brunt will be available off the bench. Brunt has two goals and five assists in 22 appearances this season.

Brunt is expected to miss at least six weeks after suffering medial ligament damage is his knee during last weekend's match against Manchester United, the Daily Star reports.

It's a huge blow to the Baggies, who will be without Brunt for matches against Swansea, Hull City, Cardiff City, and Norwich City.

Brunt had two assists during West Brom's 3-3 draw with West Ham on Saturday.

Brunt has been a solid distributor this year, recording five assists so far in 13 appearances. That figure puts him behind only Wayne Rooney (nine), Mesut Ozil (six), Steven Gerrard (six), and Aaron Ramsey (six).
