Everton vs West Brom Preview:

On January 30th Everton welcomes West Brom at the Goodison Park in Liverpool. Toffees will try to keep their top-four-place hopes alive against struggling Baggies. The hosts have drawn their last two EPL games, but they still are in the contention for the Champions League place and will be looking for three points against Steve Clarke’s team.

Everton goes on an impressive fifth spot in the Premier League with thirty eight points from twenty three games, having won nine, drawn eleven and lost three so far. The Toffees are just three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. Their present for has seen three wins and two draws in last five games. Last five home matches Everton have finished with two wins, two draws and one defeat. They’ve drawn their last two EPL games 0-0 and won Bolton with the score 1-2 in the FA Cup this weekend. Everton have the third-best defence in the EPL this season. They have conceded only twenty six goals. Marouane Fellani is their top-scorer with nine goals in all competitions.

WBA holds eighth place in the league standings with thirty four points after twenty three games, winning ten, drawing four and losing nine. The Bagies are just four points behind Everton, but they have a very poor playing form. They have not won for over a month and have two draws and three defeats from their last five fixtures. Their last five away games have finished with one win, one draw and three defeats. The Baggies top-scorer is Romelu Lukaku. He has scored nine goals so far this season.

The first meeting between these two teams had finished in a 2-0 win to West Brom. Shane Long and Gareth McAuley scored in that game.

 

Everton are almost at full strength. Everton head coach David Moyes could make some changes from the squad that won Bolton 2-1 in the FA Cup on Saturday. Johnny Heitinga could replace Sylvain Distin. Kevin Mirallas was forced to leave the field through injury in the first-half, so Steven Naismith could take his place. Injured players Tony Hibbert with calf problems and Darron Gibson with groin injury are both closing to their return, but are still out of good form.

Steve Clarke’s team heads into this game fresher having not played at the weekend. They drew 2-2 with Aston Villa in their last league match. So, head coach could use the same starting line-up with the only change in face of Shane Long after. He has return from injury. Peter Odemwinge is continuing to looking for a move to QPR. Steven Reid is also close to a return after a shin injury. Long-term injury absentee Zolton Gera is out for the rest of the season.
