Adam Webster has been back in training this week.

Albion are back in Premier League action on home soil when they face Everton on Monday at the Amex, kick-off 8.15pm.

Last Sunday the side were on the end of a narrow 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford. Danny Welbeck scored his fourth goal of the season and second in as many matches before the home side turned the game around with two goals after the break.

Before that result in the north west Albion had won their previous two matches with wins over Southampton and Newcastle United.

Everton drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace on Monday at Goodison Park. James Rodriguez fired the home side into the lead before Palace levelled late on through Michy Batshuayi.

Team news...

Graham Potter provided an update when he spoke to the media on Thursday afternoon.

The head coach revealed that Adam Webster and Dan Burn had trained with the side on Thursday morning, while Aaron Connolly could return to do the same towards the end of the week.

Potter also confirmed that striker Florin Andone would get some minutes with the under-23s to build his fitness. They host Southampton in Premier League 2 on Friday afternoon.

The Romanian has returned to training in recent weeks.

The history...

Albion and Everton have played each other 18 times dating back to 1913.

Albion are unbeaten at the Amex against the Toffees in the Premier League, drawing once and winning the last two meetings.

Jurgen Locadia’s goal was the difference between the two teams in December 2018 as Albion recorded a 1-0 win.

The most recent meeting the Amex in November 2019 was a five-goal thriller that Albion won in stoppage time.

Pascal Gross had fired the home side ahead with a free-kick before an own goal from Adam Webster and Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s smart finish put Everton in front.

Neal Maupay’s penalty and another own goal, this time from Lucas Digne, sparked wild scenes of celebration in front of the north stand as Albion secured a late win.

The two sides met in October earlier this season at Goodison Park, where Everton won 4-2.

The Everton Player to Watch...

Richarlison has notched 12 times in 31 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

The Brazilian found the net in four consecutive Premier League matches between February and March and also got a brace in the memorable 5-4 win over Spurs in the FA Cup.
Everton have won two of their last three away league matches, and Richarlison has scored in both of those.
