Everton broke a run of four defeats in a row in the Premier League with a spirited home draw against the reigning champions Manchester City. However the blue did suffer penalty heartache in the FA Cup on Tuesday against West Ham United. Everton have won just three matches at home this season which is only beaten by Aston Villa, Leicester City and Hull City who have won just 2 matches each as well as Sunderland who have managed just one victory. Only Swansea City (16) have lost more points from winning positions than the Toffees this season who have dropped 15 points so far. Everton have taken just 5 points from a possible 27 in recent Premier League matches.
Leighton Baines put his name in the Premier League record books during his last match, not that much was made it in the media. Baines provided Steven Naismith with the equaliser against Manchester City in what was his 46th assist in the Premier League and his 8th assist in 20 league matches this season. Only Fabregas (14), De Bruyne (10) and Ronaldo (9) have provided more assists across the top five leagues in Europe this season and the most any other defender has on the list is 4 goals. However it is quite common knowledge is no where near as good as Luke Shaw.
Possible Line ups
Tony Pulis' first premier league match as West Brom match continued a great run of form which has seen him lose just 1 of his last 9 Premier League matches (W6 D2). Berahino slotted his 9th league goal of the season which makes him joint fourth in the current top goalscorers table. West Brom have failed to win in their last five matches away from home which is only worsened by their opponent Everton (6), Crystal Palace (8 ) and of course QPR (10). Only QPR have managed fewer goals (5) on the road than West Brom (6) so far this season. Saido Berahino has six goals in his last three matches in all competitions.
Six of the previous nine fixtures between these two managers have ended with the spoils being shared and incredibly, all but one of those fixtures drawn ended with a 2-2 scoreline. Tony Pulis' first win in this match up came in their latest meeting last season which was the only meeting not contested between Stoke City and Wigan Athletic as Everton saw their top four aspirations dashed after losing 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace in the previous campaign. Martinez has seen his side score in all nine fixtures against a Tony Pulis team.
