West Brom takes Everton in a match of the Premier League. Both teams perform as expected. Everton want to move at top of the standings. They have class in the team and a lot of quality players. Much of them are injured. The list is quite long. Bryan Oviedo, Steven Pienaar, Muhammad Beshich, Leighton Baines, Tom Cleverley and Tony Hibard are out of the squad with permanent injuries. Roberto Martinez is in very bad situation and must be added that Kevin Mirallas is suspended and also is outside the group for the match.
John Stones and Seamus Coleman are likely to recover but are questionable to last moment. In the last 5 games against West Brom, Everton is undefeated. They will now find it difficult to continue this statistic with so many missing players. In the the team of West Brom only Ben Foster is injured and sidelined. All others are available for Tony Pyulis.
Traditionally in recent years no many goals in the matches between these two teams. The statistics also confirms. In the last 10 games in all competitions 9 is under 2.5 goals per game. This indicates the difficulty for the both teams. It is important that in their the last 3 games in the Premier League West Brom have three clean sheets. At the same time Everton do have clean sheets in the last 3 away games. It just shows how harder will be to see more than 2.5 goals. However, this is only statistics and anything can happen. In the last 6 games between these rivals, 3 equal, one victory for West Brom and 2 wins for Everton.
Considering into account the large number of injured players in the team of Liverpool and stability of West Brom after lead plus home factor in our prediction is 1. Guaranteed there will be many tackles, fight for positions in all zones.
