Team News: Everton
Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon rupture) and Cenk Tosun (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) will not be able to play for Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti.
It seems likely that The Toffees look set to use a 4-3-3 system for this game with Jordan Pickford, Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina, Michael Keane, Seamus Coleman, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan Marques Loureiro, Andre Gomes, Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and James Rodriguez.
Team News: West Bromwich Albion
West Brom manager Slaven Bilić has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Kenneth Zohore (Calf Injury) and Conor Townsend (Ankle problems) will miss out on this game.
We’re of the thinking that The Baggies seem most likely to begin the game with a 5-4-1 lineup using Sam Johnstone, Darnell Furlong, Semi Ajayi, Kyle Bartley, Dara O'Shea, Conor Townsend, Matheus Pereira, Romaine Sawyers, Jake Livermore, Grady Diangana and Callum Robinson.
We feel that Everton should create the chances to score more than once when they line up against West Bromwich Albion, who could well struggle scoring a goal of their own.
Therefore, we are anticipating a fairly comfortable 2-0 win for Everton by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
