- Darron Gibson (groin) and Tony Hibbert (calf) make up Everton’s long term injury list this week.
- Everton winger Kevin Mirallas returned the action last week following a hamstring injury, but picked up a knock in the Toffees’ 2-1 win at Bolton in the FA Cup.
- The Belgian has around a 75% chance of being fit for Wednesday’s match. The same applies to full-back Seamus Coleman, who is on the road to recovery from a thigh injury.
- David Moyes will hope to name the same side that featured at Bolton. Potential new signing Leroy Fer was set to be revealed to the Goodison Park faithful on Wednesday night, but the club has hit a stumbling block in his transfer, and the saga will continue.
- Zoltan Gera (knee), and Steven Reid (leg) make up West Brom’s absentee list through injury this week.
- Youssuf Mulumbu is the Albion’s only other player missing, having joined his DR Congo team mates at the African Cup of Nations.
- Striker Shane Long is scheduled to return to the first team following a knock, though he’s unlikely to start, leaving Romelu Lukaku and Peter Odemwingie in the frame for a starting place.
- However, Odemwingie’s loyalty to the club has been called into question lately, and Steve Clarke may face a selection dilemma with the Nigerian.
