Premier League Preview: Everton vs West Brom

Friday, March 10th, 2017

everEverton’s nine-match unbeaten run came to an abrupt end at Tottenham last week and they will be looking to return to winning ways as quickly as possible. They have failed to win their last three home league meetings against the Baggies and have won just two of the last five Premier League welcomes of West Brom.

Defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend saw West Brom’s five-game unbeaten run come to an end. Tony Pulis will demand an immediate response, but they have failed to win their last three away league games and have secured maximum points on the road on just three occasions this term, all by a one-goal margin.

Pulis may have to make do with back-to-back losses, with Everton expected to make it five successive home league wins.
