Everton vs West Bromwich AlbionEnglish Premier League, KO: 12:30 Sep 19, 2020, Goodison Park
EVERTON look to make it two Premier League wins from two when they welcome newly-promoted West Brom to Goodison Park on Saturday.
The new-look Toffees, with Colombia forward James Rodriguez enjoying an impressive debut after his move from Real Madrid, started the campaign in style with a 1-0 victory at Spurs on Sunday.
Everton look like they have the quality to contend for the European spots, but there have been too many false dawns at Goodison over the years to be making rash predictions this early in the season.
They do have a high-calibre European manager in Carlo Ancelotti, who has had time to put his mark on the squad after taking charge in December, and he looks to have invested wisely this summer in midfielders Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure, and world-class frontman Rodriguez.
An improvement on last term's 12th-place finish looks a given, and the visit of the Baggies is exactly the kind of fixture Everton must be winning if they are serious shedding their flaky image.
West Brom's return to the Premier League after a two-season absence didn't exactly go to plan, with Leicester leaving the Hawthorns with a 3-0 win on Sunday.
Slaven Bilic warned his side they must learn quickly now they're back among the big boys and it already looks like a long, hard slog for his team.
How do the bookies view it?
Everton, having one only one of the last five meetings on Merseyside, are 4-7 at Betfred to improve that record with victory this weekend.
West Brom look set for another harsh lesson on life in the top flight. Ancelotti is expected to stick with the same starting XI who disposed of Spurs, and the forward line of Rodriquez, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison would be a handful for any defence.
I like the look of a home win and under 4.5 match goals at a shade under even money with Skybet, while the Toffees and over 1.5 at 5-6 with Betfred should also land.
Rodriguez will be desperate to get off the mark as quickly as possible for the Blues, with only Richarlison having more than the Colombian's three shots at goal last weekend.
At 5-2 with Paddy Power, back Rodriguez to break his duck for his new club.
