Everton are set to be without Kevin Mirallas and Seamus Coleman for Wednesday’s Premier League clash against West Brom.

Winger Mirallas again limped off with a hamstring problem during Saturday’s FA Cup win over Bolton, his second abortive comeback from the injury he first suffered two months ago.

Full-back Coleman is expected to be out for at least another two weeks with a thigh injury while midfielder Darron Gibson has suffered a slight setback in his own recovery from a thigh problem.

Here are some interesting facts on Everton & West Bromwich Albion:

 

  • Just one of their previous 13 Premier League meetings between these two sides have ended as a draw, with Everton winning seven and West Brom securing five wins.

 

  • Victor Anichebe has scored in two of his last three Premier League games against West Brom, despite playing a combined 69 minutes over those three matches.

 

  • Everton have lost only 9% of games that they have conceded the first goal of the game in this season (1 of 11); the best such record in the Premier League.

 

  • West Brom have attempted 61% of their shots in the second half of Premier League games this season; a higher proportion than any other side.

 

  • Romelu Lukaku has scored seven goals and assisted one in his nine Premier League starts for West Brom.
