Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Everton will win against West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

Everton will face West Brom away from home at The Hawthorns in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Owen believes that the Toffees will pick up all three points from the encounter.

“A great win for the Baggies at Selhurst Park but Ronald Koeman is slowly making his mark at Everton and I think the Blues can take all three points from a game where I don’t expect to see many goals,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation: Everton to win at 13/8.”
