Everton vs West Brom – Premier League: There are still some days left for this match but since I believe that the odds will drop rapidly, I’ll write down this pick now in order to still catch some value.
Everton is one of the teams that has been making the most moves on this transfer window, especially up front, having already confirmed the signing of Walcott this week, coming from Arsenal, after already having announced the signing of the Turkish star Gokhan Gonul last week.
Adding to those values Rooney, Sigurdsson, Vlasic, Lennon and Bolasie, we get an excellent attacking force with a lot of alternatives.
It is clear that these players aren’t well intermeshed yet, but still, I believe they will already have an impact in this match already.
Everton is on a mid-table position, but they only have a 7-points advantage over the relegation zone. This has been a disappointing season for the Toffees, that have already fired a manager and are now coached by Sam Allerdyce.
The truth is that the hope of the Liverpool’s Blues to reach a European spot is almost none, but above everything, they need some points to climb on the league table and leave the bottom half for good.
As I’ve said, Everton has a roster with a lot of stars, and they have a team that is capable of doing much more than what they have done so far and for this match, playing at home, they are the favourites.
Big Sam has is job at risk after 3 consecutive losses, which means that this match is a true final for the home side.
As for West Brom, they have won on the last round and they hadn’t won for more than 10 matches, only having 3 wins in 23 Premier League’s matches. The team is fighting to avoid relegation, occupying the penultimate place of the league table.
The team has also swapped managers this season, but West Brom’s roster isn’t on the same level as the other English teams, being one of the main relegation candidates in my opinion.
Despite their position on the league table, one of this team’s main characteristics is the fact that they don’t concede many goals. In 23 matches, they’ve only conceded 30 goals, the same as Arsenal for example.
On Boxing Day, these two teams have played each other, and the final result was a 0-0 draw.
Everton vs West Brom – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams need points, so this will be an open match.
Everton is building a beautiful team and playing at home, they have to be considered favourites, even more when they are facing the penultimate placed team in the league.
Everton’s team has a golden opportunity to turn things around and start showing the quality they are expected to have.
As for the visitors, after returning to victories, they will want to get some points again, but they have a hard task here to hold off Everton’s attacking front.
