Everton vs West Brom 20 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

21 January 2018

Despite the pitfalls of this season, West Brom are not a relegation certainty.

West Brom ended their 20 game winless run in the Premier League last time out against Brighton - they've not won back-to-back games in the competition since their opening two of this season.

"Having got the nod last week this was going to be my 1,000th game I'm absolutely delighted to have hit that milestone, mainly all in the Premier League". This is a feat managed thanks in part to the poor quality of the teams around them at the bottom of the table this season but mostly due to their rigidity at home. West Brom captain Jonny Evans scored in the fourth minute against Brighton and the club were able to hold onto the win.

Despite Everton's lengthy injury list being reduced, Allardyce still has a reduced choice in defence with Leighton Baines (calf) Michael Keane (foot) Funes Mori (knee) and Seamus Coleman (leg) all still unavailable.

Nacer Chadli is still out for the Baggies but James Morrison could make a return after a lengthy stint on the sidelines.

A new flaw which can make your iPhone crash from just receiving a message has been discovered and has been dubbed "text bomb". He said he'd reported the bug to Apple the previous day, he told BuzzFeed , but had not heard anything from the company.

"Players may leave but we don't know who they are because you're waiting for other clubs to come and show an interest but certainly I think moving a few players on now is the order for us".

Theo Walcott's arrival at Goodison Park appears to have left the writing on the wall for the 30-year-old as Sam Allardyce looks to trim his current squad.

Who was your Man of the Match?

Burnley's next game after tomorrow's home clash with Manchester United is not until January 31st - transfer deadline day - at Newcastle United, where Lennon would be in line for a debut if a deal is concluded in the intervening period. However, Everton have struggled lately, failing to win any of their last five games. Adding further fuel to this particular fire, Alan Pardew has refused to rule out the possibility of losing his captain to a league rival.

Alan Pardew picked up his first win as West Brom manager last weekend, helping the club with its first game since August 19. Everton will be buoyed by their new signings and the lift it will provide to the home fans this weekend which could spark a second revival for the Toffees since Allardyce arrived on Merseyside only seven long weeks ago.
