Everton v West Bromwich Albion

Team News (new)

Kevin Mirallas is a big doubt after limping off against Bolton with a reoccurrence of his recent hamstring complaint, although David Moyes hopes the Belgian's problem isn't too serious. Tony Hibbert continues his recovery from calf surgery, while Seamus Coleman could again to miss out after injuring his thigh at Southampton. Darron Gibson isn't far away from a return after spending the last month on the treatment table with a similar thigh injury.

Youssouf Mulumbu will definitely not feature on Wednesday evening as he is currently representing DR Congo at the African Cup of Nations. Baggies boss Steve Clarke will check on the fitness of Shane Long and Marc-Antoine Fortune after both missed Albion's 2-2 draw against Aston Villa with leg haematoma and hamstring injuries respectively. Argentine defender Claudio Yacob is expected to play after recovering from a bruised collar bone.

Form (new)

Last outing: 2-1 (a) Bolton Wanderers, Saturday 26 January.

Everton's unbeaten run has now stretched to five matches following the win over Bolton on Saturday afternoon. The Blues have only lost once at Goodison Park all season, although they will be looking to record their first home victory of 2013 after drawing a blank against Swansea City in their previous outing two-and-a-half weeks ago.

Last outing: 2-2 (h) Aston Villa, Saturday 19 January.
Last six: LLDLLD

After a blistering start to the season, West Brom's form has dipped alarmingly over the last month. The Baggies are without a league win this year and have collected just one point from the last 12 available. Despite their poor run, they still sit in eighth position, just four points behind David Moyes' team, with only Liverpool and Arsenal separating the two clubs.

Match Stats (new)

1. The next Everton player to find the net at Goodison Park will have the honour of scoring the 400th home goal of David Moyes' reign as manager.

2. Phil Jagielka is set to make his 201st Everton appearance after reaching the double century milestone against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday.

3. The last nil-nil draw between the two clubs was 22 meetings ago in November 1982. Everton have scored in every home match against the Baggies since then.

Last Meeting (new)

West Bromwich Albion 2-0 Everton, Saturday 1 September, 2012
It was a rare off day for Everton when they travelled to the Hawthorns in the opening weeks of the season. Second-half goals from Shane Long and Gareth McAuley ended the Toffees' perfect start to the campaign following successive wins over Manchester United, Aston Villa and Leyton Orient. That blemish is just one of three Premier League defeats suffered by the Blues this season.

Classic Match (new)

West Bromwich Albion 0-1 Everton, Sunday 1 January, 2012
Everton completed a classic smash-and-grab on New Year's Day last year. A largely uneventful game was drifting towards a stalemate until substitute Victor Anichebe stole all three points with a decisive 87th-minute winner. It was the forward's first Premier League goal in 22 months.

Club Connections

Kevin Campbell scored goals for both Everton and West Brom in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The 42-year-old netted 51 times during a six-year spell at Goodison Park before registering seven strikes for Albion during an 18-month stay towards the end of his career. Other players to have turned out for both clubs include Steve Watson, Imre Varadi, Kevin Kilbane and Andy King.


30 January has generally offered very little in the way of good fortune for the Blues over the last 20 years - they have played five times on this date and have failed to score in four of those matches. One source of comfort, however, is that Everton did take maximum points in their last fixture on this day during 2009/10 - a 1-0 win away at Wigan where Tim Cahill scored the only goal of the game.
