Everton play their first Premier League fixture at home of the 2020/21 season as Carlo Ancelotti's side play host to newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion at Goodison Park.

While the Blues got their campaign off to a flyer with a 1-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend thanks to Dominic Calvert-Lewin's goal and new trio Allan, James Rodriguez and Abdoulaye Doucoure all starring, the Baggies started the return to top flight football with a a 3-0 home reversal to Leicester City.

Their boss Slaven Bilic, a former Everton defender of course, will have them fired up for this game though and an intriguing contest awaits.

We've got Phil Kirkbride and Adam Jones following the action at Goodison with Chris Beesley and Peter Harris handling the blog and our social content respectively.

Player ratings: James quality shines through but Calvert-Lewin steals the show

Dominic Calvert-Lewin celebrates scoring Everton's 5th goal vs West Brom

Bagged himself a well-deserved hat trick and could have even scored more goals on the day as well. A real striker's performance from Calvert-Lewin this afternoon to really set his stall for the rest of the season.

Ancelotti pleased but wants more

Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has been speaking about today's game.

He told BT Sport:

"The result doesn't reflect what really happened on the pitch.

"In the first half, they (West Brom) were better but we had a good reaction to their goal and the game was easier in the second half

"Dominic Calvert-Lewin started really well. Today he was the top scorer but Richarlison did really well and had a lot of opportunities.

"He had support from James, who is doing really well in this period.

"He has a fantastic desire to play and he loves to play with us.

"We have to be better at the back but I have seen more ambition, motivation and focus (in the new season) and we have to pay attention as every game can be difficult.

"I am happy with a great result but if you look a performance, there are lot of points in which we we can do better.

"We were without balance at the beginning but after two games it's normal that everything is not perfect"

Hat-trick hero Calvert-Lewin says Ancelotti is 'on me' every day

Everton hat-trick hero Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been speaking to BT Sport:

Confirming that his hamstring is ok, despite his leg being iced after being substituted, the striker said:

"I thought we started a bit slow but we got back in the game.

"It was a nice day all round with my first hat-trick in senior football.

"if you look at quality we've got on the ball it was important we utilised it, created space and penetrated.

"Carlo's on me every day for one touch finishes so it's nice to know what I'm working on training coming off on the pitch.

"For me as a centre-forward it's great to have James creating chances. He's played at the highest level and has showed his quality already.

"He got his goal and I'm happy for him and he's helping me.

"It's important not to get carried away but it was a good game and a good performance.

"We're taking things game by game and I'm aiming to get a goal every game."

Full-time

A 5-2 win for Everton over West Bromwich Albion and they go top of the early Premier League table, six points clear of both Manchester City and Manchester United - both yet to kick a ball!

Richarlison header off target

Richarlison denied again. A great run from the Brazilian to get on the end of a cross but he heads wide.

Keane chance

Michael Keane almost had a chance for his second goal of the afternoon but he could bring down a Gylfi Sigurdsson corner properly.

Don't forget the World Cup Golden Boot winner in the current side...

James makes way

James Rodriguez's home debut comes to an end as Moise Kean comes on for the final 13 minutes.

Richarlison goal disallowed

Poor Richarlison. First he has a goal-bound shot nudged over the line by Calvert-Lewin and now he executes a spectacular finish only to be ruled offside and his effort doesn't count.

Final change for the visitors

West Brom introduce their final sub as Sam Field comes on for Romaine Sawyers.
