Everton have lost four games on the trot and manager Sam Allardyce will be keen to see that horrendous streak come to an end. The Blues have failed to register a shot on target in their last two home games and that will need to change sooner than later too.
Both new signings this month Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott are expected to start as Allardyce looks to go on the front foot against a West Bromwich Albion that won for the first time in twenty Premier League games last weekend.
Defender Michael Keane has recovered from the gash on his foot that has kept him out for two spells this season. Winger Aaron Lennon, who is expected to complete a move to Burnley in the next few days, trained with the squad yesterday and could be given a farewell appearance at Goodison today.
Seamus Coleman is back in full training but lacks match fitness as he ramps up his regimen in the next few weeks.
For Alan Pardew and the Baggies, he will be sweating the fitness of Ahmed Hegazi and Craig Dawson who had a clash of heads last time out. James Morrison and Nacer Chadli remain out for a few more weeks.
