Everton’s nine-match unbeaten run came to an abrupt end at Tottenham last week and they will be looking to return to winning ways as quickly as possible. They have failed to win their last three home league meetings against the Baggies and have won just two of the last five Premier League welcomes of West Brom.
Defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend saw West Brom’s five-game unbeaten run come to an end. Tony Pulis will demand an immediate response, but they have failed to win their last three away league games and have secured maximum points on the road on just three occasions this term, all by a one-goal margin.
Pulis may have to make do with back-to-back losses, with Everton expected to make it five successive home league wins.
Everton remain without injured duo Yannick Bolasie and Muhamed Besic, though have no further concerns.
Ronald Koeman could name an unchanged side to the one that fell to a 3-2 loss at Tottenham last weekend.
Matt Phillips misses out on the trip to Goodison Park with a hamstring problem.
Tony Pulis has no further injury issues and has hinted at changes to his attack, which could see James McClean come into the XI, while Hal-Robson Kanu is also pushing for a start.
Everton have won their last 4 home matches (Premier League).
West Brom have kept a clean sheet in their last 3 away matches against Everton in all competitions.
