John Stones is a doubt for the clash with West Brom
Everton defender John Stones is a doubt for the clash with West Brom

West Brom hosts Everton at the Hawthorns on Monday night as both teams look to continue promising runs of form.

The Baggies have picked-up seven points from their last three Premier League games. The side from the Midlands have kept three consecutive clean sheets, but are still too close for comfort to the Premier League drop zone.

Tony Pulis’ side have yet to pick-up a win at home this season, and the visit of Everton will be a major test for the Midlanders.

Everton have started the season in promising fashion, despite being handed a tough fixture list in the first six games of the campaign.

The Toffees are three games unbeaten in the Premier League and have at times looked exciting going forward, with England youngster Ross Barkley starting to fulfil his immense potential for Roberto Martinez’s side.

Team News

West Brom has a near fully-fit squad available for this clash, with England ‘keeper Ben Foster the only enforced absence through injury. Wales international Boaz Myhill has been in good form in Foster’s absence though, and should continue in goal.

Everton have a relatively long injury list with Leighton Baines, Bryan Oviedo, Tom Cleverley and Steven Pienaar all out injured.

Belgian winger Kevin Mirallas is suspended following a red card against Swansea last time out. Full-back Seamus Coleman is a doubt for the clash, along with centre-back John Stones.

Prediction

This could be a tight game, with the Baggies having been solid at the back in the last few weeks, but Everton have looked dynamic going forward this season. The men from Merseyside may just shade this clash.
