England have moved Jonny Bairstow one place up the batting order to number six in an otherwise unchanged line-up for the third Ashes Test.
Bairstow batted at number seven in the previous two Tests of the series in Brisbane and Adelaide but has switched places with all-rounder Moeen Ali for the match in Perth.
England must at least draw at the WACA, where they have won just once since their first visit in 1970, to keep their hopes of retaining the urn alive.
Elsewhere England have made the call to put Moeen down to number seven after his largely unproductive series with the bat so far.
The all-rounder has made only 105 runs in four innings, falling on each occasion to in-form Australia off-spinner Nathan Lyon.
Bairstow, who has been batting with the tail, therefore gets the opportunity to impress further up the order.

Skipper Joe Root was keeping England's hopes alive in pursuit of a national-record run chase to complete an astounding reversal of fortune in Adelaide.
James Anderson's maiden five-wicket haul in Australia, and four from Chris Woakes, helped Root's side bowl their hosts out for 138 on day four to give themselves a highly-improbable victory target of 354 in this inaugural pink-ball Ashes Test.
Following a half-century opening stand, England lost Alastair Cook lbw to Nathan Lyon and Mark Stoneman caught at gully off Mitchell Starc, and then just as the lights were taking effect after dinner, James Vince also edged a drive at the left-armer to slip to leave his team 91 for three.
But Root, having used a review to overturn an lbw dismissal against Lyon on 32, and Dawid Malan were frustrating Australia, whose desperation for a breakthrough saw them lose both reviews in the space of three balls.
