West Brom v Everton preview

BY foxsports • December 30, 2011

Albion midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is a major fitness doubt. Mulumbu aggravated a groin injury during the home draw with Manchester City on Boxing Day. James Morrison - if he recovers from a recent hamstring problem - and Graham Dorrans are in contention to replace him. Central defender Jonas Olsson is expected to shake off an ankle knock suffered against Roberto Mancini's side, while Billy Jones is again set to deputise at right-back for Steven Reid, who is recovering from knee surgery. Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini will miss the game with an abductor strain. The Belgium international sat out the Boxing Day draw at Sunderland but Jack Rodwell, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since December 4, could be ready for a return as he has trained this week. Loan signing Landon Donovan is not eligible to play until next week while Moyes also has one unnamed player suffering with sickness. West Brom (from): Foster, Fulop, Jones, Jara, Olsson, McAuley, Dawson, Tamas, Mattock, Shorey, Scharner, Brunt, Thorne, Dorrans, Thomas, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Odemwingie, Long, Bednar, Mulumbu, Morrison. Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert, Distin, Jagielka, Baines, Drenthe, Heitinga, Rodwell, Neville, Osman, Cahill, Saha, Mucha, D Bilyaletdinov, Vellios, R Barkley, D Stracqualursi, McFadden, Gueye.
