Tony Pulis’ West Brom will pay a visit to the Goodison Park as they gear up to take on seventh-placed Everton in the Matchweek 28 of the Premier League.
The Baggies have been performing consistently well over the course of the season and find themselves seated comfortably at eighth place in the league standings. But having lost their previous game against Crystal Palace by a margin of 2-0, West Brom will be eager to bounce back. The Toffees are just a place and four points ahead of Pulis’ side.
West Brom had to taste a 2-1 defeat when the two sides met earlier in the season at the Hawthorns but will be hoping for a reversal of fortunes come Saturday. There are no suspensions or injury concerns for Tony Pulis, with the injured Matt Phillips almost nearing full fitness.
Predicted West Brom Line-Up to Take on Everton
Ben Foster (GK)
The English shot-stopper is the undisputed first-choice at the Hawthorns and he will once again take the pitch between the sticks at the Goodison Park.
Craig Dawson (RB)
The right-back has been a constant fixture in the Baggies’ line-up this season, having just missed a single game. He is a definite starter.
Gareth McAuley (CB)
The 37-year old veteran continues to perform and impress at the heart of the defence for West Brom. He will be going up against the in-form Romelu Lukaku. Having scored 6 goals already this season – the second highest for West Brom, he will be a threat in the opposition box.
Jonny Evans (CB)
The former Manchester United centre-half has been one of the most consistent performers for Tony Pulis’ side. He will partner McAuley in the backline.
Allan Nyom (LB)
And it will be summer signing Allan Nyom who will slot in at the left-side of the defence. The versatile full-back started against Palace last weekend and should retain his place.
Nacer Chadli (RM)
The former Tottenham man has enjoyed life at the Hawthorns since moving in the summer and has become a key man in attack. Will feature on the right-flank.
Darren Fletcher (CM)
Another former Manchester United man, Fletcher has contributed immensely to Baggies’ rise in recent seasons. Will take his rightful spot in the middle of the park.
Jake Livermore (CM)
The former Hull City man will play in a slightly withdrawn midfield role, providing the shield to his defence and the energy while going forward.
James Morrison (CM)
The 30-year old attacker will complete the central midfield trio for West Brom. Has scored five times for the Baggies this season and will be crucial if they are to come away with something from the Merseyside.
Chris Brunt (LM)
The Northern Irishman has been one of the best players for West Brom this season. He will take the field on the left-side of the midfield on Saturday.
Salomon Rondon (ST)
Leading the line will be the big, burly Salomon Rondon. The Venezuelan international has scored seven times this season and will start ahead of Hal Robson-Kanu.
