New signings James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan impressed in Everton’s opening weekend win over Tottenham, and they will be confident against newly promoted West Brom, who fell to a 3-0 defeat against Leicester City.
Both teams have stuck with the same starting XI which began last weekend’s opening fixtures. Follow all the action live below:
36 mins: Nice work down the left from West Brom. Allan loses the ball and it’s played through the defence for Robinson. The pass is a little heavy and he can’t reach it before it passes him.

Everton 1 – 1 West Brom – Calvert-Lewin
33 mins: GOAL! VAR overturns the decision and awards Everton the goal. Coleman ran into the box from the right and he crosses it into the middle of the penalty area. Richarlison is challenged to the ball by I think Ajayi. The striker misses his header and the ball bounces off the defender and up to Calvert-Lewin who back heels it into the back of the net. He was in an offside position but Richarlison never touched the ball so the goal was given.

21 mins: Off the post! West Brom work the ball up the pitch nicely and Pereira passes it out wide to Furlong. He crosses the ball into the box from the right, Robinson flicks it on with his head and Livermore shoots. Pickford leaps to his right and gets a fingertip to the ball, pushing it onto the left hand post.

15 mins: Digne passes the ball into the box for Everton and Sawyers makes a mistake by giving the ball to Calvert-Lewin. The Everton striker turns and shoots but the ball takes a deflection and goes out for a corner. Digne whips it into the box and West Brom clear the danger.
