Everton will be looking to make it three Premier League wins in a row when they host West Bromwich Albion at Goodison Park this afternoon.

The Toffees have won both of their last two games by a 3-0 scoreline, hammering Newcastle United and Stoke City, and there is a sense of renewed confidence amongst the Everton squad.

The pressure has eased on manager Roberto Martinez, and it would be a surprise to see him make many changes today.

John Stones and Tim Howard face a race against time to be fit and are unlikely to play even if they are available, whilst Tom Cleverley and Aaron Lennon should keep their places out wide after impressive performances against Stoke last weekend.

Meanwhile, West Brom aren't safe from relegation just yet, and manager Tony Pulis desperately needs another victory.

With just three points from the last five games, West Brom need a lift, but injury concerns to defenders Jonny Evans, Craig Dawson, Gareth McAuley and Chris Brunt mean that fringe players Cristian Gamboa and Sebastien Pocognoli could feature against Everton.

Saido Berahino is once again unlikely to start, with Salomon Rondon likely to lead the line on his own if Pulis reverts back to 4-5-1, rather than the 3-5-2 system he tested against Peterborough United in midweek.
