    Monday Night Football LIVE: West Brom v Everton

    Probable teams…

    West Brom (4-4-1-1) Foster, Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Morrison, Yacob, Mulumbu, Amalfitano, Anelka, Berahino.

    New boss Pepe Mel seems unlikely to tinker at the back for his first game in charge. But up front Stephane Sessegnon and Saido Berahino will be pushing for recalls, and could come into contention for a start ahead of James Morrison or Nicolas Anelka. Victor Anichebe remains a doubt to face his former club with a groin problem after missing the last six games, although the striker has returned to training.

    Everton (4-2-3-1) Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Osman, McCarthy, Barry, Mirallas, Lukaku, Pienaar.

    Ross Barkley faces three to six weeks on the sidelines with the fractured toe that saw him miss last weekend win over Norwich. Antolin Alcaraz has been ruled out for a fortnight with a muscle problem, whilst Sylvain Distin is expected to return after injury to face West Brom.

     

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Typical Z Cars Goodison Park entrance. Shame about the 0-0 draw.

    One To Watch…

    Romelu Lukaku could be the best we've ever seen

     

    Romelu Lukaku has scored nine goals in the first half of the season and I’m sure he wouldn’t mind adding to that against the club he used to represent.

     

    Some stats to get your head around:

    Nicolas Anelka has scored eight Barclays Premier League goals against Everton, only netting more against Blackburn in the history of the competition (12).

    Everton have won four and lost just one of the last six meetings with West Brom in all competitions.

    West Brom have not won back to back home Premier League games since March 2013.

    Everton have lost none of their last six Premier League away games (W3 D3 L0).

    Roberto Martinez won two and drew one of his three Premier League visits to the Hawthorns as an opposition coach with former club Wigan.

    Zoltan Gera has scored two goals and assisted another in his last three PL appearances for West Brom against Everton.

    Kevin Mirallas is the most substituted player in the Premier League this season (14 times).

    Everton have an average possession figure of 57% away from home in the Premier League this season, only Swansea (60%) average higher.

    WBA (9) and Everton (8) have drawn more games than any other team in the Premier League this season.

    Everton defenders have contributed 10 goals this season, as many as West Brom’s strikers have (10) and more than the strikers at 11 other clubs.
