Improving Baggies can pick up a point on Merseyside
Sam Allardyce responded to Everton's 4-0 loss to Tottenham by saying his team need to be more boring and there is a widespread expectation of a dour game between the Toffees and West Brom at Goodison.
Everton failed to register a shot on target against Spurs but were loose at the back and Allardyce's priority is to get back to keeping clean sheets.
A 1-0 win would suit him just fine but West Brom are improving under Alan Pardew and can take a point from their trip to Merseyside.

West Brom have kept five clean sheets in their last ten games.
Theo Walcott could make his Everton debut and Michael Keane (toe) is available but Leighton Baines (calf), Maarten Stekelenburg (groin) and Seamus Coleman (leg) are out.
Craig Dawson and Ahmed Hegazi (both head) are doubts and James Morrison (Achilles) and Nacer Chadli (thigh) are out.
