West Brom vs Everton by Hassy

West Bromwich Albion entertain Everton in Monday Night Football and I definitely expect a tight encounter in the Premier League. I expect to see a clash of styles at the Hawthorns, with a managerial meeting between Tony Pulis and Roberto Martinez. So far this season West Brom have played four league games at home and they have scored just two goals; both those goal coming against a Chelsea side that played 30 minutes with ten men. Manchester City, Southampton and Port Vale have also managed to blunt a Baggies' attack which hasn't fared a great deal better on the road with two goals bringing six points from Aston Villa and Stoke while they failed to score at Watford and Norwich (in the Capital One Cup).


Despite not scoring goals, Albion's main strength lies in their defence. So far this season they have managed to keep clean sheets in four of their six league games. In the two games they did concede goals, they faced both Chelsea and Manchester City which is understandable. However, since those defeats it is worth noting that they have kept three clean sheets in a row now are Jonny Evans will be a shrewd signing to an already solid defence. West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill is set to return after Anders Lindegaard was given his debut in the midweek League Cup defeat at Norwich. Head coach Tony Pulis is likely to bring back many of the players rested for that game.


Everton's last two away games in the Premier League have finished 0-0, in fact Martinez's men are yet to concede an away league goal this season, while at the other end they've managed an average of just one goal per game on the road. They have also failed to find the net in three out of their last four games. Everton defenders John Stones and Seamus Coleman have knee and hamstring injuries respectively and will be given as long as possible to prove their fitness. Forward Kevin Mirallas is suspended.


It's difficult to imagine there being many goals here. West Brom have kept three clean sheets in a row, while Everton would have the same record but for Nemanja Matic's thunderbolt a couple of weeks ago. These two sides have recorded seven clean sheets between them in just 12 league games played this term - take out matches against Chelsea and Man City and it's seven clean sheets in eight games. That said both sides do have talented attacking players in their ranks though. Jose Salomon Rondon boasted a good record for Zenit while James Morrison has two to his name (both against Chelsea) and Everton have Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley and Steven Naismith to call upon. However, I strongly fancy the defences to come out on top in this game and will opt for Unders tonight. The draw at 0-0 or 1-1 also comes into play and I will be backing the draw with some money tonight too.
