The Spaniard has had to bat away a bid from Manchester United for left back Leighton Baines this week however it was the form of his right back Seamus Coleman which was the main talking point last weekend.
The Irish man enjoyed a stunning start to the season claiming a goal and an assist and looks set for a big season.
Another who impressed at Carrow Road was Ross Barkley and the young midfielder will hope he has done enough to hold the challenge of the returning Darron Gibson.
Gibson missed the clash with Norwich due to a knee injury and should return to the squad along with Tony Hibbert however Antolin Alcaraz is out with a hamstring injury with Sylvain Distin rated as doubtful.
“Sylvain Distin is the one we’re a little bit concerned about,” Martinez told the club’s official web-site. “But knowing Sylvain, you can never say that he’s not going to be available at the weekend.
“Darron Gibson is progressing really, really well. It’s one of those injuries where you need to be very, very careful you don’t come back too early. He’s still 50-50 for the weekend but I don’t expect it to be much longer than that.”
West Brom impressed last year on the opening weekend when they ran out 3-0 winners over Liverpool however there was to be no repeat this time round as Steve Clarke’s side lost out to a last minute penalty to Southampton in front of their own fans.
Scottish midfielder James Morrison featured in that game and will be hoping that the Baggies can improve from last weekend’s loss to Southampton “For us, we need to get last Saturday out of the system, because it wasn’t great,” said Morrison.
“Probably a draw would have been fair, but we’ve had a few games that have gone that way over recent years and that’s something we need to stamp out.”
WBA will be without Nicholas Anelka after the striker was granted compassionate leave following the death of his representative, Eric Manasse.
Long term absentee’s George Thorne and Zoltan Gera remain on the side-lines while new signing Scott Sinclair, signed from Manchester City on loan with a new to a permanent deal next summer, could go straight into the squad.
The action gets underway at Goodison Park, Everton at 15:00 GMT
