The keen-eyed amongst you may have noticed that Boaz Myhill enjoyed a rare start betwixt the sticks for West Brom in Monday night's 1-1 draw against Leicester, his first appearance since April of 2016.

This was because the Baggies' first-choice goalkeeper, one Ben Foster, managed to succumb to injury the weekend before the match while mucking around in his own back garden.
