West Brom V Everton at The Hawthorns : Match Preview

24 December 2017
Chadli sidelined by fresh injury blow

Nacer Chadli will miss West Brom's Boxing Day clash with Everton after sustaining another thigh injury at Stoke.

Albion's club record signing was introduced as a half-time substitute at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday but only lasted a quarter of an hour before he limped off again.

Winger Matt Phillips (hamstring) has resumed training and could be included in the squad but James Morrison (Achilles) remains out for Alan Pardew's side, who are now without a win in 17 Premier League matches.

Everton midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye is set to miss the trip with a hamstring problem sustained in the goalless draw at home to Chelsea.

Top scorer Wayne Rooney missed that match through illness but could be ready to return on Boxing Day.

Centre-backs Ashley Williams and Mason Holgate were only fit to be substitutes at the weekend after flu and could remain on the bench.
