first_img[dropcap]S[/dropcap]o, the marketeers have dubbed that today is ‘Blue Monday’.This apex of gloominess is thought to be caused by multiple factors: miserable weather, broken resolutions, post-Christmas debt and weight anxieties.Actually, there’s a simpler answer. It’s because we’ve got Everton v West Brom as the live TV game tonight. Even the Sky marketing department have taken the day off on this one.West Brom are averaging 0.6 goals in their away games so far this season and Everton have won just one of their last 13 games – against QPR – how bad must QPR be ??After Chelsea’s move at the top of the table over the weekend the relegation battle could be a lot more interesting. Everton are just three points off the drop zone and West Brom two points so there’s plenty at stake. It’s tough at the top but even tougher at the bottom.Everton v West BromPremier8pm LIVE ON SKYHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Sep 2014 Premier West Brom 0-2 EvertonJan 2014 Premier West Brom 1-1 EvertonAug 2013 Premier Everton 0-0 West BromJan 2013 Premier Everton 2-1 West BromSep 2012 Premier West Brom 2-0 EvertonMar 2012 Premier Everton 2-0 West BromJan 2012 Premier West Brom 0-1 EvertonSep 2011 Carling Cup Everton 2-1 West BromMay 2011 Premier West Brom 1-0 EvertonNov 2010 Premier Everton 1-4 West BromEverton’s grueling and ultimately fruitless defeat at the hands of West Ham in the FA Cup may catch up with them tonight.
