West Brom vs Everton
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 4 March 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
The Baggies are the worst team in the competition along with Sheffield United, and are placed dead last in the table. They have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the league.
In fact, they have let in a total of 55 goals so far, while no other squad in the English top flight has conceded 45 goals.
By all means, they are the prime contender to get relegated at the end of the season, and it’s a given that they would be massive underdogs against any squad but Sheffield.
Meanwhile, the Toffees are one of the best in the PL, and are placed seventh in the table at the moment. They do have a game in hand, and are chasing a spot in the top-four.
They need a surplus of just two points to get to the fourth position, and as such, they would be doubly motivated for this upcoming match-up.
On top of that, Carlo Ancelotti’s men also have a great h2h record against this rival over the years.
For the reasons, expect Everton to secure the win this Thursday.
