Home Everton

20/01/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Goodison Park V Predicted Score:1 - 1

Away West Brom

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Cenk Tosun. The Turkish striker made his debut for Everton against Tottenham last weekend, and with a week’s training under his belt, will offer a very different threat to the Toffees current striker options. Tosun to score in 90 minutes is 15/8.

2 We fancy:

A score draw at 7/2. These two might not have a huge amount of goals in them but they can get at least one each and remain likely to concede as they each continue to struggle for form.

3 It's a long shot, but…

West Brom to win and Rodriguez to score at 13/2. Everton have to beat the likes of West Brom if they’re to avoid being pulled back towards the bottom three but Goodison isn’t a happy place lately.

Everton vs West Brom Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Everton need some more Wayne Rooney magic when hard-working West Brom visit this weekend

It appears that the ‘new manager effect’ has worn off for Everton, who have lost every game since drawing against West Brom back in December. The Baggies, on the other hand, have picked up a respectable draw against Arsenal, as well as wins over Brighton and Exeter, and will have momentum in their favour on Saturday.

Everton are 6/5 to win on Saturday, and will be glad for some respite having played Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham in their past three games. West Brom will offer a very different challenge, and one that the Toffees are much better suited to handle.

West Brom are 14/5 to win, which seems harsh on the Baggies who are going through a good spell at the moment. If Jay Rodriguez continues his current form, they will have a decent chance of scoring against an Everton defence that is short on options.

A draw is 2/1, matching the end result the last time these two played. Neither side has been particularly prolific in the past month or so, and a draw is a likely outcome.

Gylfi Sigurdsson is 3/1 to score anytime, and with Everton’s strikers struggling to produce the goods, a lot of the attacking impetus is resting on the Icelandic midfielders shoulders. Although not playing in his favoured centre-attacking midfield position, Sigurdsson has started to link up well with Wayne Rooney with the two alternating roles during the match.

Jay Rodriguez is also 3/1 to score, with two goals and an assist from his last four games. Despite having just three strikes to his name, the English midfielder is West Brom’s joint top scorer this season, and has showed that he is able to handle that responsibility whilst at Southampton.

Predicted Score: Everton 1 - 1 West Brom
