Victor Anichebe could be back in contention for Everton.
The 22-year-old has not made a senior appearance all season due to a knee injury suffered in pre-season - the latest in a catalogue of problems - but scored for the reserves in midweek.
Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is again missing as he serves the final match of his three-game ban for his red card against Bolton.
Leon Osman (ankle) and Ross Barkley (broken leg) are the other major absentees.
Chris Brunt remains an injury doubt for West Brom with the groin injury that kept him out of last Saturday's 3-0 home defeat to Stoke.
However, James Morrison (back) and Steven Reid (Achilles) are expected to be fit for Albion.
