He expects Everton to return to winning ways following their defeat to Tottenham last week at the expense of a West Brom side that were beaten by relegation strugglers Crystal Palace.
Prior to the Spurs defeat, Everton had been in excellent form, having gone without defeat since the Merseyside derby loss to Liverpool on December 19.
Collymore has backed Ronald Koeman’s side to rediscover that form against West Brom at Goodison Park on Saturday, and record a comfortable 3-1 victory.

The two sides are evenly poised ahead of the tie, with just four points separating the pair in the Premier League table.
Everton currently lie seventh, eight points adrift of the top four, while West Brom occupy eighth place.
It was the Toffees that emerged victorious during their last outing in August, running out 2-1 winners thanks to goals from Kevin Mirallas and Gareth Barry, cancelling out Gareth McAuley’s early opener.
The form of striker Romelu Lukaku, however, is like to have a major influence on proceedings on this occasion.
The 23-year-old has found the back of the net on his last two outings, scoring six goals form his last four league appearances.
