Everton 0-0 West Brom: Toffees miss a penalty as resilient Baggies hold Everton to a draw

Everton were frustrated by West Brom at Goodison Park, with the Merseyside outfit ruing a first-half missed penalty, reports BBC Sport.

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.
