Everton are hosting West Bromwich Albion today as Carlo Ancelotti’s new-look Toffees play at Goodison Park for the first time this season.
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:

Everton 0 – 1 West Brom – Diangana
10 mins: GOAL! That’s come from nothing. Grady Diangana just edges forward with the ball making his way to the Everton penalty area. There’s nothing on for Diangana so he shoots as the defenders drop away from him, Pickford reacts late and is beaten by the time he dives across to his left. West Brom lead.
