Everton vs West Brom 20 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

Allardyce has already spent nearly £50million this month with the captures of Theo Walcott from Arsenal and Cenk Tosun from Besiktas. Although the Toffees may currently sit in ninth position and remain a comfortable seven points adrift of the drop zone, Everton have now gone six games without a Premier League win, even more worrying for Allardyce is the fact that Everton have lost their last four games on the bounce.

When it comes to correcting poor form, West Brom are turning a corner after a long, barren straight of fruitless matches.

It was their first victory in the league since August, and Alan Pardew will be hoping to maintain the momentum when they face Everton at Goodison.

Allardyce started his coaching career in 1991 as player-manager at Limerick, guiding them to promotion to the top tier of the League of Ireland, but those games did not qualify as they are not regarded as a full-time professional club. I want to be part of the attacking force that is here.

Theo Walcott will make his debut for Everton as the Toffees host West Bromwich Albion at Goodison Park this afternoon. West Brom captain Jonny Evans scored in the fourth minute against Brighton and the club were able to hold onto the win.

It was a solid team performance from West Brom with every player contributing to the win. Defensively, Everton have struggled all season, allowing the fifth most goals in the Premier League. It was the defenders who took most of the credit for their efforts both in defence and attack, something which nearly seems like a call back to the strengths West Brom showed last season before their form deserted them towards the final few matches.

Nacer Chadli is still out for the Baggies but James Morrison could make a return after a lengthy stint on the sidelines.

Stuart Attwell will officiate this one, the first time he's taken charge of an Everton game this term.

"Players may leave but we don't know who they are because you're waiting for other clubs to come and show an interest but certainly I think moving a few players on now is the order for us".

For Pardew, the task at hand appears to be in dealing with the cards he's already been dealt. Relegation is looking very likely and as a result, they need wins.

The 30-year-old winger has been made available following Everton's £20m signing of Theo Walcott.
