Sam Allardyce's side are heading into this match on the back of a poor run of results, having not won in their last six games in all competitions, and losing four in a row.

Sam Allardyce has never lost a home Premier League match against the Baggies (P8 W2 D6 L0); his only home league defeat against them came in December 2000 in the second tier as Bolton manager, a 1-0 defeat via a Jason Roberts goal.

After beating Brighton, West Brom will attempt to win their first away game and claim back-to-back victories for the first time in over a year.

Everton started this game like they have multiple others this campaign - disjointed, uncoordinated and mostly unwilling to put in the hard work. The Toffees are clear of the relegation zone but they will know that they are not safe yet and that they still need to play well.

Everton and West Brom played on Boxing Day at The Hawthorns, with both teams failing to score and settling for a scoreless draw. West Brom captain Jonny Evans scored in the fourth minute against Brighton and the club were able to hold onto the win.

Theo Walcott trained with his new teammates for the first time on Friday and could be in line to make his Everton debut.

Should they be passed fit then West Brom will be missing just two players, with Nacer Chadli (thigh) and James Morrison (Achilles) sidelined. Defensively, Everton have struggled all season, allowing the fifth most goals in the Premier League.

Despite Everton's lengthy injury list being reduced, Allardyce still has a reduced choice in defence with Leighton Baines (calf) Michael Keane (foot) Funes Mori (knee) and Seamus Coleman (leg) all still unavailable. This is a great chance for the side to win a game since Everton away is winnable.

"To experience so many different clubs with so many different cultures has been a great journey for me", said Allardyce.
