Everton vs West Brom
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
The Toffees have made some great signings this off-season, and under Carlo Ancelotti, they have set some ambitious targets for this campaign. After arch-rivals Liverpool won the title in a menacing manner the past season, it must have really stung hard for this Merseyside squad.
Anyhow, they have begun their new campaign on a positive note, and they could keep the momentum going with another victory this weekend. They are at home, and are taking on the newly-promoted Baggies.
Not only are Slaven Bilic’s men struggling at the moment to show consistency, but they also have a troubling h2h record against this rival – and especially so at this venue.
As such, expect an Everton win this Saturday at the Goodison Park.
Everton vs West Brom: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Toffees recorded seven of the previous nine overall wins.

- The guests have recorded a total of just two wins in the past two decades at this ground.
- At this venue, the visitors have scored a total of three goals from the past seven clashes.
Everton vs West Brom: Prediction
Ancelotti’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham. Meanwhile, the Baggies lost 0-3 at home against Leicester in their opening weekend.
The Toffees have been one of the major teams in the PL for the past several years, and with some ambitious signings in the past few transfer windows, they have made clear of their objective to be counted amongst the best in the league.
They have already made a winning start to their season, and are pitted against a newly promoted team, who have just lost their first match in the PL by conceding three goals.
On top of that, Ancelotti’s men have lost just once at this stadium since November, and in the process had taken on the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Leicester, Chelsea etc.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a six-fixture winless run, and had failed to score in three of their former five overall games, while conceding two or more goals in three of their last four overall match-ups.
Finally, Bilic’s men have a total of just one win away from home in six attempts, and on top of all that, they have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years.
As such, expect a dominating Everton win this Saturday.
