Everton v West Brom

Everton will be looking to extend their winning run when they host West Brom at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Toffees are on three-game winning streak in all competitions and have won their last two league outings.

Their 3-0 win over Stoke City last time out saw them move into eighth position in the Premier League standings.

John Stones (hamstring) and Tim Howard (knee) have both missed the last two games and face late fitness tests.

Muhamed Besic is also out, but Oumar Niasse could come into contention for his debut.

The Baggies, meanwhile, are winless in their last five league outings, but come into the game on the back of a penalty shootout win over Peterborough in the FA Cup last time out.

Albion are currently in 14th position in the league standings, six points clear of the relegation zone.

Defender Gareth McAuley has been ruled out for two weeks with a hamstring injury against Peterborough on Wednesday.

Jonny Evans, Craig Dawson and Chris Brunt, meanwhile, are all doubtful for the trip to Merseyside.
