Everton were comprehensively beaten by Tottenham last Saturday and the lift that Sam Allardyce gave the club upon his arrival is now just a distant memory. This weekend the Toffees play host to a West Brom side who have finally earned a first Premier League win since August. The task for Alan Pardew is to make sure that was not the exception rather than the rule and use last week’s win over Brighton as a platform in which to build on. Everton need a reaction after a poor run of results and they will fancy their chances of finding a much-welcomed win at Goodison Park on Saturday.

March of last year saw the two sides face off at Goodison Park and it would prove to be a day to forget for Tony Pulis. The then West Brom boss witnessed his side slump to a 3-0 defeat with Kevin Miralls, Morgan Schneiderlin and Romelu Lukaku all getting on the scoresheet for Everton as they strolled to a routine victory in front of their own fans.
