Everton were frustrated by West Brom at Goodison Park, with the Merseyside outfit ruing a first-half missed penalty, reports BBC
Everton couldn’t break down West Brom over the 90 minutes, with the Baggies staying organised and solid for the clash. But the Toffees did have a massive opportunity to take the lead in the first-half when awarded a penalty for a handball against Joleon Lescott.
However, Kevin Mirallas assumed duties from 12 yards, instead of regular penalty-taker Leighton Baines, and missed his spot-kick – hitting the post with his effort. Everton went into the break goalless as a result.
The second-half carried on where the first-half left off, with West Brom keeping Everton at arm’s length, and with the Blues failing to create any real clear-cut opportunities. Everton were held to a draw in the end, which was their sixth consecutive game with a win. Albion moved up a place in the table.
