Everton return to Premier League action this evening when they take on West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

The Blues come into the game on the back of a hard-fought 1-0 win over Southampton on Monday night, and currently sit seventh in the Premier League table.

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed at his pre-match press conference yesterday afternoon that a decision had yet to be made on whether James Rodriguez, Allan, Seamus Coleman or Tom Davies will feature in this evening's game.

Kicking off at 6pm, and live on Sky Sports, Phil Kirkbride and Adam Jones will be providing live updates on the action as well as bringing you team news, analysis and reaction.

Everton move up to fourth place in the Premier League with a 1-0 win at The Hawthorns.

Richarlison bagging the winner in the 65th minute, heading home Gylfi Sigurdsson's inswinging cross.

Mbaye Diagne had a goal ruled out for offside in stoppage time.

Another huge three points for Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Goal disallowed

A huge let off for Everton as VAR rules the Albion forward was offside. But it was tight.

West Brom have the ball in the net

Diagne has the ball in the net but the flag goes up.

VAR is going to have a look.


Five minutes added on at The Hawthorns. A huge effort is needed from Everton to get this one over the line.

Holgate continuing

Mason Holgate says he's 'felt something' in his hamstring, but looks like he is able to continue.

Holgate down

Mason Holgate is down and it dosen't look good. The Blues defender appears to be holding his hamstring.

Change of formation

Everton now operating in a 4-5-1 formation with Richarlison on the left and Josh King on the right. Calvert-Lewin up top by himself.

Brilliant from Allan

Great play from the Everton midfielder to sniff out the danager. The Brazilian has been excellent since coming on.

Ancelotti message

"Stop the cross! Stop the cross" is pretty much all Ancelotti is saying at the moment.

Double change for West Brom

Robert Snodgrass and Hal Robson-Kanu replace Matt Phillips and Conor Gallagher.

West Brom appear to be going for it with just over 10 minutes of normal time remaining.

Allardyce furious

Everton seeing far more of the ball since they scored as West Brom are preparing a double change.

Sam Allardyce is also furious with the officials following a challenge by Andre Gomes on Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Everton nearly in on the counter

Maitland-Niles does some great covering to clear the danger as Everton break. Just under 20 minutes to go at The Hawhtorns, and Everton are going to need to dig deep here. West Brom still pushing.

Sigurdsson the assist king

Sigurdsson's second (?) kick of the game is an absolute beauty to set that up.

He's been so much more creative this season than last, chipping in with goals as well. Much improved and well worthy of credit.

Sigurdsson makes instant impact

Sigurdsson's corner is cleared, but his cross back into the box is headed home by Richarlison. A huge goal for the Blues.

Another Everton chance

Doucoure is replace by Sigurdsson with just under 30 minutes remaining.

First Everton change

Allan is on for Alex Iwobi. Perhaps a change in formation will now follow for the Blues?

A huge let off for Everton

Conor Gallagher beats Godfrey and fires one straight across the face of goal. Another let off for Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Pickford forced into another save

Matheus Pereira turns on the edge of the box and curls an effort at goal, which is held by the Everton goalkeeper.
