MATCH PREVIEW: Everton v Albion

Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's clash

ALBION's Premier League season continues on Saturday as they face Everton in a crucial clash at Goodison Park (ko 3pm).

The opposition

The Baggies have been hot on the heels of Ronald Koeman's men all season. Seventh in the Premier League, Everton are four points and one place above Albion in the table. And victory on Saturday would consolidate the Toffees' position and give them a potential chance of European football next season. 

Last time out

Gareth McAuley's goal was not enough to prevent Albion falling to defeat against Everton in August. Kevin Mirallas and Gareth Barry were on target for the visitors.
