West Brom have named an unchanged starting XI for the Premier League clash against Everton on Wednesday evening.
The Baggies have decided to stick with the same side that battled their way past Brighton last time out at The Hawthorns.
Confirmed on their Twitter account prior to kick-off, Sam Allardyce has decided to bench both Robert Snodgrass and Semi Ajayi on their returns.

Big Sam hinted at changes to his side and had the options available to do just that.
Snodgrass and Grady Diangana have both recovered from injuries recently and that has given the boss some food for thought in this survival race.
Kieran Gibbs was a big doubt, and that shouldn’t leave too much of a problem at The Hawthorns, with Conor Townsend now easily the first-choice option.
Sam Johnstone will once again continue in goal, and he could be in for yet another busy night as he looks to prove his England credentials against yet another Three Lions option in Jordan Pickford.
Allardyce was fuming over the rescheduling of this fixture, but his side still have a job to do if they want to build towards survival this season.
With Newcastle coming to town on Sunday, it could be a critical handful of days with six winnable points on the line.
Should the Albion win this evening, they will go into that clash with the Magpies only six points behind; let’s end this week only three points from safety.
