Monday night lights for 'Next 20' clash
Tonight’s Premier League fixture at Goodison Park between Everton and West Bromwich Albion features a pair of sides with ‘Next 20’ ambassadors.
Everton’s Romelu Lukaku and West Brom’s Andre Wisdom, on a season-long loan from Liverpool, will be looking to bring back the three points for their respective sides.
The televised game, live on Sky Sports 1, is dedicated to Kick It Out’s ‘Season of Action’ with both teams able to climb to 12th place with a win tonight. Belgium international Romelu is the Toffees top-scorer this season with nine goals in all competitions so far.
Andre has played all but one Premier League game during this campaign as the full-back continues to add to his development after a loan spell at Derby last season.
As part of the ‘Season of Action’ activity, player escorts will form a guard of honour as both sides come out of the tunnel.
Our friends from High5it, football’s positive appreciation app, will also be attending as they travel around the country meeting fans on their customised bus. They’ll be outside the stadium from 17:30.
Tonight is the second occasion this weekend where ‘Next 20’ ambassadors have clashed with West Ham United’s on-loan defender Carl Jenkinson contributing to a 3-0 win against Harry Maguire’s Hull City. To find out more about the ‘Next 20’, please click here.
