Ideye suffered a knee injury during Saturday's match against Southampton and will be assessed further Sunday to determine the full extent of the issue.

Saido Berahino left the match with a foot injury, which could leave the Baggies very shorthanded for Tuesday's match against Stoke City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ideye scored once and got an assist in Wednesday's 2-0 win against Swansea.

Idea opened the scoring in the 60th minute through a placed finish and then turned provider for Saido Berahino a quarter of an hour later. The Nigerian striker has finally found his feet in the Premier League and his blossoming partnership with Berahino makes him a shrewd pick up for fantasy managers.

Ideye scored the equaliser in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Burnley.

Ideye headed home Chris Brunt's corner in the 67th minute to give the visiting side a share of the spoils. The Nigerian striker was widely tipped to be departing during the January transfer window and could become a more regular fixture in the side for the remainder of the season.

Ideye scored a late header in Friday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Ideye was in the right place at the right time as the ball hit him on the back of the head and dribbled into the net in the 87th minute. It was the £10 million man's first league goal for the club after he came off the bench as a 67th minute replacement for Varela.

Ideye (ankle) has trained all week and should return for Monday's game against Manchester United, manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Ideye (ankle) has trained all week and manager Alan Irvine sounded confident that the striker will be fit enough to return. Ideye is West Brom's record signing after arriving in the summer and is yet to score a Premier League goal. His path back into the team is blocked by the in-form Saido Berahino and fantasy managers will only get the chance for points off the bench from the Nigerian forward.

Ideye (ankle) will miss Saturday's trip to Liverpool, manager Alan Irvine told the Birmingham Mail.

Ideye is yet to recover from an injury that he picked up when scoring his first goal for the club against Hull in the Capital One Cup. He should return against Manchester United after the upcoming international break and won't start given Saido Berahino's current rich vein of form.

Ideye (knock) is fit for Saturday's game against Burnley, according to the striker's Twitter account.

Ideye (knock) injured himself in the process of scoring his first goal for West Brom in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Hull City. Ideye was left out of last weekend's trip to Tottenham and will find it hard to score this weekend against a stern Burnley defence that is looking for a fourth clean sheet on the trot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Ideye started his first ever Premier League game on Saturday against Swansea.

Ideye was largely ineffective during the 3-0 defeat after being chosen by manager Alan Irvine to lead the line. The Nigerian striker is the club’s record signing at £10 million and manager Irvine will persist with him as the focal point of the West Brom attack for the time being. Ideye scored five league goals in 19 games for Dynamo Kiev last season and his need to adapt to the Premier League makes him a last resort for fantasy managers.
