West Brom vs Everton betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

West Brom's recent mini-spell of positive results has shown a considerable amount of improvement in comparison to where they sit in the table, but it will likely be too little too late for the Baggies unless a miracle is on the cards. Sam Allardyce's men are set to welcome Carlo Ancelotti's Everton to the Hawthorns with the Toffees in a good position to jump up to fifth should they collect all three points.

Betting prediction: West Brom 0-2 Everton

It’s hard to see a different result here, though maybe not simply down to the fact of the gap in class both on the pitch and on the touchline. Everton’s recent Merseyside derby win was the perfect way for the Toffees to end their mini-run of poor form, and continued with a result against Southampton. West Brom has found results of late as well, though many would suggest Brighton beat themselves in their last outing, and much of the same maybe could be levied when reviewing their 1-1 draw with Manchester United. The Baggies are fighting for survival but it’s hard to view them as a side that can genuinely control their own destiny in the same way that Everton can in their push for Europe next term. It may be tricky at some stage, but Everton should see this one out.

To Win To Nil: Everton

Everton is not particularly stellar at the back this term, sitting mid-table when it comes to goals allowed (33) at current. The bigger issue comes down to West Brom’s ability – or lack thereof – to consistently create dangerous chances or patterns of play. Everton should be alright for a clean sheet.

To Score Anytime: Richarlison

The talk this season regarding Everton’s goal threat has largely surrounded Dominic Calvert-Lewin, whose thirteen goals this term is good enough for joint-fourth in the scoring charts. But the recent goal-scoring form of Richarlison maybe puts him ahead as a player to watch. Five goals in his last five appearances across all competitions, including three in his last three Premier League outings, makes the Brazilian international the key danger-man of late.

West Brom vs Everton: Match preview

West Brom’s 1-0 win against Brighton at the weekend is probably the perfect encapsulation of where their season is and where it will go by the end of the 2020-21 Premier League campaign. With a massive stroke of luck brought to you by VAR and two spurned chances from the spot by Graham Potter’s men, the Baggies registered their first win in eight since their 3-2 win away at Wolves in mid-January.

It was roughly the same amount of matches that it took Sam Allardyce’s men to get that win against Wolves after only their second win of the campaign – a 1-0 win against Sheffield United – on November 28th. Before that? Similar to go from one win to two. The only measure of consistency shown at the Hawthorns this season is how long it takes West Brom to bounce from one win to the next. Simply put, that type of form will never see you survive a Premier League season even under the absolute best of circumstances and would require too many other teams to be on similar poor form for the duration of the campaign.

Though WBA has a small cadre of players in their ranks that are a decent bunch, headlined by Mattheus Pereira, the truth remains that for a club that has spent nine of the last eleven seasons in the Premier League but has failed to make the most of it. Riding your luck and hoping you steal a win given the leg-work the club has put in while overall being a part of the top rung of English football is a poor platform for success, and when you survey how some other clubs have tried to kick-on and truly establish themselves via their recruitment or infrastructure, West Brom’s struggles are even more frustrating to consider.

With their date against Everton looming, how the Baggies prepare for each match moving forward for the rest of the campaign may have a certain set of consequences attached to it. Dropping down to the Championship and having to claw your way back to the Premier League is as hard as ever, and generally, it now takes clubs willing to deploy more modern and expansive football to get to the top level and sustain yourselves there. If the Baggies cannot at least begin to think in the long-term given the unlikelihood of a Premier League stay next term, then their next return could be further away than desired.

Want to be a big club? You need a big manager

There are ways to go about how clubs build-out their projects, and on the surface of it, there is not necessarily a right way or a wrong way depending on the individual set of circumstances. For a club like Arsenal, who are putting faith in a long-term approach, going with a younger manager who fits certain club criteria both in the current climate and down the road, that is one way to go about things. And coming from an Arsenal fan that backed the decision and continues to back the manager, it’s a pathway I approve of. For Everton, the road traveled is a different one, but for different reasons.

For the blue half of Liverpool and manager Carlo Ancelotti, the history of the club, the passion of the fanbase, and the desire to break into the Premier League run deep. Many fail to remember how big Everton is on the domestic front; fourth-most league titles behind Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal, and eighth-most trophies overall in England. There is a real desire at Goodison Park for Everton to be mentioned in the same breath as bigger clubs, including their biggest city-rivals. To get there, with the right direction under considerable financial backing, the decision was made to approach a manager in Ancelotti that has seen it all and done it all at every level of the highest tier in the European game. This season, at current, is proof-positive that the club brass has made the correct decision to appoint the Reggiolo-native.

Currently sitting seventh in the table, but with a chance to climb into the top four come Monday night should they beat West Brom and have other clubs drop points during the same period. Perhaps most impressively, Everton is within striking distance of European places without genuinely excelling in any one particular phase of play. Generally, the Toffees are solid across the board and that has been the right foundation to establish. But having a manager in Ancelotti that knows how to structurally succeed on the pitch and knows what he needs to get a club firing for the duration of a season has undoubtedly been the key ingredient.

With two good wins on the bounce and dreams of Europe back at Goodison Park for the first time since 2017-18, a return to life more akin to 2005-06 to 2009-10 where Everton featured in Europe for four of those five seasons is more than a possibility. The final push for the year needs to start under the flag of consistency, something that Everton have achieved for most of the season already.

West Brom team news vs Everton

Sam Allardyce just about has a full squad to choose from when West Brom host Everton at the Hawthorns on Thursday.

Robert Snodgrass is expected to be back and fully available, while Kieran Gibbs is the only doubt for the midweek clash.

Everton team news vs West Brom

Carlo Ancelotti has more concerns than his counterpart coming into this one, with Yerry Mina, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and Fabian Delph all definitely out.

James Rodríguez, Séamus Coleman, Tom Davies, and Robin Olsen should all be available, but the crunch tie against Chelsea at the weekend could see Ancelotti hold them in reserve to have them fresh for that instead.
