Our match prediction:
Everton produced a fine display against star-studded Tottenham Hotspur in the opening match of their Premier League campaign, but they eventually shared the spoils with the capital club. Key attacker Romelu Lukaku did not play against Tottenham and reports in England suggest that he is going to leave the club before the transfer window closes. Anyhow, Everton are capable of picking up at least one point from Saturday’s football match against West Brom. Salomon Rondon scored the winner for the Baggies against Crystal Palace and he is going to lead the line for the hosts against Everton. As always, Tony Pulis’ men are going to rely on their rock-solid defence and seeing that Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to play against WBA, we predict that under 2.5 goals will be scored at the Hawthorns. Taking everything into account, a close encounter appears on the cards this time out.
Highligted Player (Berahino):
Saido Berahino was born on 4 August, 1993 in Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi. He began his senior career at West Bromwich Albion at age 17, but in the 2011/2012 he was sent on loan to Northampton Town. After ending his loan spells with Brentford and Peterborough United in 2012, the right-footed attacker returned to the Hawthorns. Berahino impressed in the 2014/2015 Premier League campaign, with the English striker scoring 14 goals in 38 appearances for the team. At the end of the season he was on the verge of joining Tottenham Hotspur, but he eventually stayed at the Hawthorns. Berahino has yet to make his England debut, but he scored ten goals in 11 appearances for England U21 team. It is well known that Berahino is a Manchester United fan. In 2015 he founded his own charity foundation which helps disadvantaged people in Great Britain improve the quality of their lives.
Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four camaigns. The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987. The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955. In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
