Team News

  • David Moyes could have Kevin Mirallas back available after a lengthy spell on the sidelines having admitted that the side had missed the Belgian's attacking threat on the right, though he was withdrawn early on against Bolton as a precaution and may not be risked.
  • Coleman should be fit to continue at right-back despite picking up a thigh injury at Southampton, but both Gibson and Hibbert are still sidelined.
  • Nikica Jelavic is going through a dry spell in front of goal and his place is under threat from Victor Anichebe.
  • The club have completed the signing of Leroy Fer who could be in the squad on Wednesday night.
  • Most of the talk at West Brom at the moment surrounds Peter Odemwingie's desire to move to QPR after having a transfer request rejected by the club.
  • In turn he is unlikely to feature in midweek having been fined by the club for his comments on Twitter, so options are short out wide with Gera out and Fortune a doubt.
  • Lukaku should continue up front with Shane Long not fully fit, with Billy Jones keeping his place at right-back in the absence of Steven Reid.

Prediction

  • These two sides have had fantastic seasons respectively, though their form this year has not been as impressive as it was prior to Christmas, with Everton failing to score in each of their last two league games and West Brom without a win in 4.
  • Both sides will hope for a draw in the game between Arsenal and Liverpool - the two teams that separate Everton in 5th and WBA in 8th - with the Toffees wanting to pull clear and the visitors looking stay in an unlikely hunt for European football.
  • David Moyes will need his strikers to start converting their chances if they're to have a serious shout at pushing for Champions League football but their home advantage may just be enough in this one.
