Everton take on West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns tonight, in a game which could see Roberto Martinez's men move into the Champions League places.

Everton are currently sitting sixth in the Premier League table, but a win tonight would see them leapfrog Tottenham and Liverpool into fourth place.

West Brom have only won one game in the last 12 in all competitions and are in danger of being dragged into a relegation battle. A loss tonight would see them remain three points above the drop zone, but a win would move them up five places to 10th.

The Baggies new head coach Pepe Mel will take charge for the first time and will be looking to get off to a good start.

Mel said, according to BBC Sport: "My plan is to win, it is my only mentality and I hope to see the fans doing the 'boing-boing' very soon."

The Toffees new signing Aiden McGeady could make his debut and Sylvain Distin may return after recovering from a hamstring strain.

West Brom have injury concerns over Stephane Sessegnon and striker Victor Anichebe.

The sides battled out a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park in August but the Baggies will face a tougher test this time out with Everton in good form. 

The Merseyside team have only lost once since October 5th, and that was a shock defeat to Sunderland on Boxing day.

Nicolas Anelka has scored eight times in the Premier League against Everton for various different clubs and he will look for more goals tonight as Victor Anichebe is a doubt to face his old club and Shane Long has just signed for Hull City.
