West Bromwich Albion vs Everton, Premier League Gameweek 22: Open Thread

West Bromwich Albion manager Pepe Mel will make his debut today as the new boss in charge of the Baggies. However, the match has already been clouded in controversy after the club’s shirt sponsor threatened to axe their deal with the club if striker Nicolas Anelka was included in tonight’s squad. And he has. So the sponsor has announced they’re pulling their funding and don’t plan on renewing their deal with the club. Anelka starts today.

For viewers in the United States, the match is being shown live on NBCSN at 2:45pm ET.
