Everton fans react on Twitter as big-name trio omitted v West Brom
By Amir Mir
Everton supporters on Twitter have been raving about their bench, as Romelu Lukaku, Yannick Bolasie and Ashley Williams were left out of the starting line-up against West Brom.
The Toffees travel to the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon looking for their first win of the season, following a 1-1 draw against Tottenham at Goodison last weekend.
Lukaku returns to the squad following injury, with Williams and Bolasie making their first appearances for the club on the bench following their big money transfers.
Despite the three big-hitters not starting, fans were ecstatic at how their squad is beginning to look, with supporters eager to see Bolasie and Lukaku come off the bench.
One supporter did express surprise at Koeman’s selection, but the majority were happy with the firepower the Dutchman has at his disposal for Saturday’s clash.

It means that the Everton starting XI is unchanged from last Saturday, with Gerard Deulofeu, Kevin Mirallas and Ross Barkley leading the line again. Barkley scored Everton’s goal early in their 1-1 draw with Spurs last week, netting in the fifth minute.
