Everton faces Sheffield United
Everton faces Sheffield United at the Goodison Park in a game from the sixth round of the Premier League. We are going to invest a few minutes of our time to discuss this game with you in our English Premier League predictions for today.
For a second consecutive season, Everton continue to be very inconsistent under the management of Marco Silva. Right now the Toffees are 11th in the league standings with 7 points won, having a record of two wins, one draw and two losses. Everton started the season with bigger ambition than last season, but so far their performance in the league is pretty similar to the one from the previous campaign.
In their last game in the league Everton suffered their second defeat in the league. Marco Silva’s boys visited AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium and got beaten with 1-3. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored for the Toffees, but the Cheries secured the win with two goals from Callum Wilson and one from Ryan Fraser.
Sheffield United are among the newcomers in the league this season. The Blades started their campaign with one win, two draws and two losses in the first five matches. Right now they are 15th in the league with five points won.
In the previous round Sheffield United suffered a home loss against Southampton at the Bramall Lane. The game was decided in the middle of the second half, when the Saints’ Moussa Djenepo scored the only goal in the match.
For the game at the Goodison Park Sheffield United will be without the injured Kean Bryan, while the home side can’t use the unavaliable Jonas Lossi and Jean Gbamin.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for today for the fixture between Everton and Sheffield United on Saturday. On paper the Toffees are a slight favourite, but their performance in the league so far is far from impressive.
