West Brom vs Everton: Predictions
Although West Brom returned to winning ways at the weekend, beating Brighton 1-0, they are still fighting a losing battle against relegation from the Premier League. It was their first win for seven matches, losing four during that run including one against Sheffield United, the only team below them in the table.
Sam Allardyce was brought in to keep West Brom up but time is running out for the former England manager, with the Baggies still nine points from safety with 12 games left to play. And their chances of a win this week may be slim, as West Brom haven’t picked up back-to-back victories in the Premier League since May 2018 (although that couldn’t save them from relegation then).
They face an Everton side that have also started to pick up the wins, adding a 1-0 win over Southampton to their 2-0 victory against rivals Liverpool at Anfield. That run followed two straight defeats to Fulham and Manchester City that had seen Everton lose some ground in the race for Champions League football.
But the Toffees can truly count themselves among those in contention for a top four spot now, capitalising on the underwhelming form of teams around them. Everton are currently seventh but just two points separate them from fourth-placed West Ham United, and Carlo Ancelotti’s side have a game in hand on the Hammers (an unscheduled match against Aston Villa).

West Brom vs Everton: Match Stats
In recent weeks, Richarlison has picked up the goalscoring responsibility for Everton, scoring in his past three Premier League matches. The three goals have come from his three shots on target during this run, but there is still work to be done with his movement, as Richarlison has been caught offside twice in each of his past two games. Moving into a central position, the Brazilian is both busier and more dangerous, and that is expected to be the case against West Brom.
Everton go into this game in excellent form away from home, unbeaten in their past eight Premier League games on the road, winning six and drawing two. Across the entire campaign that have already recorded eight away wins, just one short of their Premier League record of nine, set in 2008/09. However, they have kept clean sheets in four of their 12 games away from home.

West Brom go into this game with a bad recent record against Everton, winning just one of the past 12 Premier League matches between these two sides, with that victory coming in February 2016. With a 5-2 win earlier this campaign, Everton are looking to do a Premier League double over West Brom for the fifth time which would be their joint-best record against a team.
