Happy Holidays! The perfect way to cap off the Christmas season would be with three points for Everton. A win over West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday could see the Toffees up to eighth in the league, depending on the result between Leicester City and Watford. What a transformation from a month ago.
The Baggies come into this match struggling. They find themselves in 19th place with 14 points from 19 matches. The club’s only two wins in the league this year came back in August. Since then, they have just eight points from 17 matches. Ew.
Everton won both Premier League matches between these two sides in 2016/17. First, a 2-1 win for the Blues at the Hawthorns in August. Then, a 3-0 win at Goodison Park in March. More of the same would be quite welcome.
