EVE Vs WBA Dream 11 Prediction: Everton look to make it two wins out of two as the club looks to come out hammer and tongs this season.
After completely rehauling their midfield to roll in some worldclass names from the global footballing arena, Everton were touted to impress this season. After years of underachieving and being made a mockery of, this finally looked to be a sortie where the club could unlock the true potential of its side.
And if match one was anything to go by, this looks set to be an extremely promising time for Everton. Whilst it wouldn’t be prudent to read too much into only the first tie of the season, the performance the club doled out is one which is bound to have titillated the club’s boisterous supporters.
With a new look midfield at their disposal, Everton ended up schooling Tottenham across the affair to seal a one goal win. It was an overwhelming performance, one which saw them completely dismantle and dominate their opponents across the stretch of the ninety minutes.
Where Everton were the dominant force in their clash, newly promoted West Brom were the dominated party in their outing. Taking on Leicester City in their first soiree of the new season, West Brom were royally dismantled to be putdown by three goals on the day.
It’s a performance which doesn’t bode well for the club as its arduous slate of clashes extends to the upcoming tie. Everton will outshine them all across the affair to wipe the floor with West Brom in gameweek two’s opening matchup in the Premier League.

West Brom Vs Leicester City: 0-3
If Leicester City were cumbersome to stave, Everton are going to be only more of a throbbing headache. The home side will keep coming after Sam Johnstone’s goal with bouts of attacks to see the shot stopper be overworked yet again.
Luckily, he is cut out for the task with this bound to be a fixture where he should accrue a neat amount of save points.
Lucas Digne’s assist in the bygone encounter for Everton now sees him emerge as the third top assist provider when it comes to defenders across the last two seasons. The fullback has made full use of his acumen to work the flanks to propel his side’s attacking plays.
With a cleansheet looking likely for the home side after their well versed show of defensive football against Tottenham, we have two more names grace this ambit from Everton. Both Seamus Coleman and Yerry Mina will be inducted in our setup, two players who will leave West Brom with cold feet.
He didn’t find a goal against Tottenham but James Rodriguez did more than enough to show why Everton moved in for his services. From popping up with a scorcher of a shot to creating attacking plays for his side, the midfielder showed how big of an asset he can be for the side this term.
Unlike James, new signing Abdoulaye Doucoure needed no familiarising with the Premier League. He continued in the same stem of form where he had left off from for Watford last season with his versatility seeing him make his presence felt in both attack and defence.
West Brom on the other side see us opt for a trio as we compensate for the side’s entire picks in this slot. We begin with the electric Matheus Pereira who emerged as the club’s finest performer on a day where nothing went their way.
New signing Grady Diangana didn’t quite had the debut he would have envisaged but there were sparks of brilliance for him to show why West Ham’s supporters were so disgruntled to see him leave.
Wrapping up the three man pick is Jake Livermore with his midfield trivalent set to put in a real shift for the club defensively.
Scoring his side’s only goal against Tottenham to ensure Everton got the season off to a winning start, striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will become the first pick from the side. We are pairing him up with Richarlison, Everton’s man of the match from that tie with him doing everything asked of him on the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The threat he posed infront of goal against Tottenham sees us make Richarlison our captain while Digne is the vice-captain.
