Katie Robinson, Ellie Brazil and Jodie Brett are continuing their recovery from long-term injuries, however there are no fresh injury concerns in the squad.

Form guide...

Albion were defeated for the second time in two WSL matches last Sunday, with current league leaders Arsenal securing a 5-0 victory in Crawley.

Everton have had a fine start to the season having won all their WSL matches so far this campaign. Most recently, goals from Nicoline Sorenson and Lucy Graham (2) handed the Toffees a 3-1 win over West Ham United.

Past meetings...

Albion celebrate during the 2-0 win over Everton.

Albion won the most recent meeting between the two teams 2-0 back in February, while Everton won the reverse fixture by the same score-line prior to that.

The other two times the sides have met in the WSL was during the 2018/19 season. Both games resulted in draws, 3-3 away and 0-0 at home.

One to watch...

Scotland international Lucy Graham has been in hot form this season, bagging four goals from her first four WSL games. The striker joined her current club from Bristol City in 2019, and scored six times in her 21 appearances in all competitions as Everton finished in sixth spot.

Hope's Everton Press Conference

Hope Powell (Albion Head Coach): “They have brought in some really good players and will be full of confidence. It will be interesting to see how they get on when they play the ‘bigger teams’ in the division, that’ll be the real test. But they’re flying and we recognise that, and we know we have to be at our best to get something out of the game.”
