Everton manager Roberto Martinez believes his side have the quality to challenge for the top four this season ahead of their clash with West Brom on Monday.
Birmingham have made a solid start to the season, now sitting in 9th position with 12 points from eight games, but will travel to Brentford tomorrow night looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to bottom of the table Rotherham last time out.
West Brom were two goals clear in the 54th minute as Craig Dawson netted their second.
Romelu Lukaku scored a second half double to secure Everton all three points at the Hawthorns in a superb fight back from the Toffees.
Everton fans will probably be going bonkers with delight after coming from behind to beat West Brom 3-2.
His fine low pass dissected the Albion defence only for an on-rushing Barkley to wretchedly miscue his shot wide.
A low-key opening 25 minutes was followed by a setback for West Brom when centre-back Jonas Olsson – who replaced Gareth McAuley in the starting XI – limped off with an injury, with James Chester taking his spot in the backline.
Pulis watched his side produce a highly assured performance last time out at Aston Villa, where they came away deserved winners from a game of reasonably few chances.
A host of other Premier League clubs are set to join the race for his services given that his release-clause it set to be lowered significantly at the end of the current campaign unless he manages to sign a new deal.
But Funes Mori in particular was offering West Brom hope and it was little surprise that when the opener came he was partly to blame.
Rondon has the backing of Pulis, who expects the 26-year-old to justify his price tag.
It was the striker’s second goal since returning to the starting line-up following his deadline day strike threat and underlined why the Baggies were so determined to keep him away from Tottenham.
Their two-goal advantage lasted less than 60 seconds though, and the visitors’ brightest spark Deulofeu was the architect for Lukaku to glance a header past Boaz Myhill.
