Comments:

League position: 19th West Bromwich Albion remained without a win in their last 18 games in the Premier League; the worst such run in the competition since Aston Villa went 19 games without a win from August 2015 to January 2016. Albion had now failed to score in four of their last six games in the Premier League. Baggies midfielder Gareth Barry had now played in 18 Premier League games on Boxing Day; more than any other player in the competition.

Comments:

League position: 9th Everton had now kept four clean sheets in their six Premier League games under manager Sam Allardyce; as many as they kept in their previous 23 games in the competition. The Toffees had not now lost an away game on Boxing Day since 2005 at Aston Villa (won three and drawn three). They were now unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions. This was the first time that Everton had drawn consecutive goalless games in the Premier League since November 2013.
