Cardiff City vs Everton Match Preview
Everton play their first match for 17 days, hoping the break will have rejuvenated them following a poor run of results since the start of December.
The Toffees’ slump can be traced back to the moment when goalkeeper Jordan Pickford blundered to gift Liverpool a last-gasp winner in the Merseyside derby, because frankly they have not been the same team since then.
Manager Marco Silva has come under pressure but at least he had a recent vote of confidence from the club’s owner Farhad Moshiri, who strove to insist the Portuguese’s appointment was a long-term one and that Everton had to take the rough with the smooth for the time being.
But there is certainly proving to be more than just a few bumps in the road with five defeats in their last six games and only three league wins out of 14, although at least the hiatus due to other clubs’ cup commitments has allowed Silva to reset matters and re-evaluate his players.
Cardiff, of course, need points in their relegation battle and are usually a stronger proposition at home than away. Undoubtedly Everton’s odds to win look too short here, but their comparative freshness is backed to enable them to head home with a point.
