Everton v Albion match preview

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.



  • 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.


  • 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).
