West Brom head coach Steve Clarke will check on the fitness of four players before finalising his side for Wednesday evening's Barclays Premier League meeting with Everton at Goodison Park.

Shane Long: Dead leg
Shane Long: Dead leg

Strikers Shane Long (dead leg) and Marc-Antoine Fortune (hamstring), defender Steven Reid (leg) and midfielder Claudio Yacob (shoulder) will be assessed.

Midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is expected to return to the Hawthorns from African Nations Cup duty after the Democratic Republic of Congo's exit but is more likely to be under consideration for Sunday's home clash with Tottenham.

Everton are set to be without Kevin Mirallas and Seamus Coleman.

Winger Mirallas again limped off with a hamstring problem during Saturday's FA Cup win over Bolton, his second abortive comeback from the injury he first suffered two months ago.

Full-back Coleman is expected to be out for at least another two weeks with a thigh injury while midfielder Darron Gibson has suffered a slight setback in his own recovery from a thigh problem.
