Everton vs. West Brom: Matchday News and Lineups

Stu Forster

After a nice weekend off, Everton concludes the EPL weekend with a Monday night fixture against West Brom. Lukaku gets a chance to face off against his former club while Victor Anichebe will get an opportunity to return the favor.

Everton will ahve their first-choice defense for the first time in a month after Phil Jagielka and Sylvian Distin return to the center of the pitch. They will be looking to continue their excellent form from the first few months of the season. Ross Barkley is still absent with a broken toe, and Leon Osman is deputising him. It will be interesting to see if Martinez slides Mirallas into the center of the pitch or goes a more conservative route with Osman in the middle.

New Everton winger McGeady makes the bench, and don't be surprised to see him make an appearance late in this one, especially if Everton manages to get a comfortable lead.

Everton XI: Howard, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Coleman, Barry, McCarthy, Osman, Oviedo, Mirallas, Lukaku

Everton Subs: Robles, McGeady, Hibbert, Heitinga, Stones, Vellios, Naismith

West Brom XI: Foster, Reid, Lugano, Olsson, Ridgewell, Gera, Morrison, Yacob, Brunt, Vydra, Anelka

West Brom Subs: Myhill, Mulumbu, Berahino, Jones, Anichebe, Sessegnon, Amalfitano
