Albion defender Ezequiel Schelotto will need medical clearance to play at Everton on Saturday after a shuddering challenge with Arsenal's Sead Kolasinac forced him off at the Amex today.

The right-back required treatment for several minutes following the second half collision but eventually walked off without the need for a stretcher.

Kolasinac had already been booked in the first half but Albion boss Chris Hughton believes referee Stuart Attwell was right not to show Arsenal's muscular Bosnian left-back a red card.

Hughton said: "My first impression on the challenge was it was a coming together. Nothing malicious in it at the time. I'm led to believe that's the case.

"He (Schelotto) was shook up at the time. Maybe there'll be a slight concussion, but he seemed okay in the changing room afterwards."
