They face an Everton team under experienced new boss Rafa Benitez.

The Spaniard has overseen a win against Southampton and a draw with Leeds in their opening two games, as he looks to win over the Toffees’ support after becoming only the second person to manage both Everton and Liverpool when he was appointed in the summer.

The Amex has become a bit of a fortress for Albion though, who are unbeaten in six Premier League home games, stretching back to the 3-0 win over Newcastle in March.

Team news

Graham Potter said, “Neal trained this morning and we need to see how he reacts to that, but we will have to see closer to the game. It's the same with Danny, but he might be able to feature on the bench.

"Enock is a lot better than he was yesterday, so there's an outside chance of him being involved on Saturday."

Everton player to watch

By Paul Hazlewood
Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored 21 goals in all competitions last season.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin continues to build a reputation as one of the best strikers in the Premier League. The 24-year-old netted 16 goals in 33 league outings last season, and has two goals to his name in as many games this campaign. The Sheffield-born forward was in the England squad for Euro 2020, and has won 11 caps for his country, scoring four times. He is also Everton’s Player of the Season.
