Everton face West Brom at Goodison Park on Saturday, March 11. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Both West Brom and Everton are coming off disappointing defeats as the two teams get set to battle.
Everton lost for the first time in nine matches in their 3-2 away defeat to Tottenham last weekend. But the Toffees won’t dwell on losing to the best home side in England, especially considering their current impressive home run. Winning four on the bounce at Goodison, Everton have outscored their opponents 15-3 in those games.
Everton have tasted defeat only once — 1-0 to Liverpool — in 13 home games this season, so you can see what West Brom are up against.
While the Baggies are only one place and four points adrift of the Merseysiders, form tells an entirely different story.
Taking 17 from a possible 33 points, Tony Pulis’ men are sputtering of late. They’re in a comfortable eighth spot in the standings and don’t have a lot to play for. Qualification for Europe is all but out the question, so it’s natural for a disciplined, hardworking team that doesn’t have a lot of depth to endure a dip in form during the latter stages of the season.
The Baggies away form doesn’t inject optimism into the equation as the West Midlands side have managed six points in seven recent away matches.

Romelu Lukaku, who, with 17 goals, is one behind league leader Harry Kane, has a chance to leapfrog the Spurs striker on Saturday, although he has never scored against his former team at Goodison. His three goals in six previous encounters with West Brom were all scored at the Hawthorns.
West Brom are undefeated in their three recent trips to Goodison. That short streak, however, should come to a crashing halt on Saturday.
