West Brom vs Everton Prediction & Match Preview

West Bromwich


4 March 2021 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET Premier League The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Brighton when they take on Everton at the Hawthorns on Thursday. 

The Baggies have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet, but they need to improve offensively if they are to avoid relegation to the Championship.

The Toffees, on the other hand, did well to beat their local rivals Liverpool in their last away game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to West Midlands. 

Even though the Baggies have been showings signs of improvement of late, away win should be considered as Everton are more of a team than WBA. 

Since top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin has overcome his injury, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Claudio Ranieri’s charges.

Team News:

West Brom will welcome defender Semi Ajayi back from suspension for this showdown, but Dara O'Shea has deputised extremely well and Allardyce should be reluctant to alter the Baggies' defence after two clean sheets.

The hosting manager is hopeful that Robert Snodgrass will be fit and ready for this one after a calf problem, while it remains to be seen if Kieran Gibbs will be cleared to play as well.

Allardyce has affirmed that changes will be afoot as he looks ahead to a relegation six-pointer with Newcastle at the weekend, so Jake Livermore, Romaine Sawyers and Grady Diangana are sure to be vying for starts this week.

Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are definitely out for Everton, and the quartet of James Rodriguez, Robin Olsen, Tom Davies and Seamus Coleman were also nowhere to be seen on Monday night.

However, Ancelotti has affirmed that the outfield trio should be fine for Thursday's game so long as they pass late fitness tests, and all three will be vying for starts given the quick turnaround in fixtures.

Coleman may replace Mason Holgate at right-back if he is deemed fit enough, while Gylfi Sigurdsson may drop out for Rodriguez despite claiming the assist for Richarlison's winner on Monday.

West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Furlong, O'Shea, Bartley, Townsend; Livermore, Sawyers; Phillips, Pereira, Diangana; Diagne

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Digne; Doucoure, Davies; Iwobi, Rodriguez, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin
