Forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin is in contention for a place in Everton’s squad to face West Brom after recovering from an ankle injury which has sidelined him since January 2. Midfielder Muhamed Besic has returned to training after recovering from a knee ligament operation but there are doubts over whether he will feature at all this season. Manager Ronald Koeman is likely to make changes from the side which lost at Tottenham with veteran midfielder Gareth Barry likely to make way for the more attacking Ademola Lookman.
West Brom will once again be without winger Matt Phillips. Phillips sits out the Premier League contest at Goodison Park due to the hamstring problem that has kept him sidelined for the last two games. Baggies boss Tony Pulis says he has “one or two knocks” in his squad beyond that but does not expect anyone else to be unavailable.
