Everton v Albion match preview

19 January 2018

ALBION will be looking to continue their good run of form when they travel to Goodison Park and take on Everton this Saturday (ko 3pm).

The opposition 

Everton are currently sat 9th in the Premier League table having taken 27 points from their 23 matches so far this season.

They initially made a strong start under Sam Allardyce by gaining 10 points from his first four league games, but have since gone six without a win in all competitions.

Their last outing was a 4-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday.

Last time out 

Our most recent fixture against Everton was only in December as we played out a goalless draw with them at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies’ last visit to the blue half of Merseyside was in March last year when goals from Kevin Mirallas, Morgan Schneiderlin and Romelu Lukaku condemned us to a 3-0 defeat.

Stats

Albion

  • The Baggies have lost just one of their last five games in all competitions (W2, D2, L1).
  • Albion have a better goal difference (-12) than Saturday’s opponents Everton (-13).
  • Jonny Evans will make his 300th career club start if selected by manager Alan Pardew.

Everton

  • The Toffees are yet to score a goal or have a shot on target from their two games in 2018.
  • Everton have won just one of their last four matches at home to Albion.
  • Allardyce's team have made the most clearances in the PL this season (801).

Match Reports

Everton 1 Albion 1

20 January 2018

ALBION claimed a deserved point from a 1-1 draw against Everton at Goodison Park.

Jay Rodriguez handed the Baggies a seventh-minute lead courtesy of a cool finish, his sixth goal of the season, before Toffees substitute Oumar Niasse levelled in the second half.

It ensured Albion were forced to settle for a point from the Premier League encounter, extending their unbeaten run to three matches in all competitions with just one defeat in their last six.

Both teams wore black armbands and held a minute's applause, along with the 39,061 present, in tribute to Baggies legend and icon Cyrille Regis, who sadly passed away this week.

It was Albion, like they did in the victory over Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, who got off to a dream start.

Grzegorz Krychowiak, having seconds earlier sent a good chance off target, threaded a perfect throughball for Rodriguez to race on to and slot home across Jordan Pickford.

Chris Brunt's teasing cross evaded everyone and flew narrowly wide of the far post, before Everton's first shot on goal came in the 38th minute, Jonjoe Kenny testing Ben Foster.

Salomon Rondon headed off target from Brunt's corner just before the break as Albion led at half-time.

The second half was little more than 10 minutes old when James McCarthy was seriously injured in making a last-ditch challenge to deny Rondon, who was visibly upset in the aftermath of the accidental collision which forced the Toffees midfielder off on a stretcher.

Everton introduced Niasse in the 69th minute and the striker quickly made an impact, converting Theo Walcott's cushioned back-post header from Wayne Rooney's cross.

Krychowiak was denied from distance and Matt Phillips could not convert the rebound, before Foster saved well from Walcott's volley at the other end.

The encounter went from end to end as it entered the final 10 minutes, Phillips and Rondon both going close in between an effort from Everton substitute Yannick Bolasie.

Salomon Rondon came agonisingly close to a sensational winner in the fifth of seven minutes stoppage time, but he saw his 25 yard strike hit the crossbar and bounce to safety.

It meant neither side could find a winner on Merseyside and the points were shared.

ALBION: Foster, Dawson, Hegazi, Evans (c) (McAuley 80), Gibbs, Phillips, Barry, Krychowiak, Brunt (Livermore 79), Rodriguez (McClean 79), Rondon.

Subs: Myhill, Nyom, Field, Robson-Kanu.
