Squad sheets: Everton v West Bromwich Albion
3 years ago

It says something for both teams' inconsistencies that they should have followed up their performances of the season with some mediocre results. West Brom have not managed an away win since overcoming Arsenal at the Emirates two months ago while Everton have tasted one victory after winning the Merseyside derby on 17 October. Having lost four of their last five games the Albion manager, Roberto Di Matteo, will want Chris Brunt to have recovered from the groin injury that kept him out last weekend, although James Morrison and Steven Reid should be fit.
