Everton vs Sheffield United Predictions
After finishing the 2018/2019 campaign so strongly, before bringing in some exciting new players in the summer like Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi, Everton fans were hopeful of a really positive campaign and a push for a top six finish this season. At home, they have taken some momentum from that end of season form into the new term with home victories over Watford and Wolves ensuring they’ve now won 6 consecutive league games at Goodison Park.
However, problems continue to persist on the road for the Toffees. A goalless draw with Crystal Palace on the opening day has been followed up with disappointing defeats against newly-promoted Aston Villa and Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth, showing that there are still weaknesses in Marco Silva’s squad. Back in front of their own fans for this one, the Blues will expect to pick up all three points at 4/6 with Coral.
Sheffield United have provided one of the fairytale stories of English football over the last few seasons, earning back-to-back promotions from League One into the Premier League under the guidance of a boyhood fan of the club, Chris Wilder. His tactical innovations have won the side plenty of plaudits but he will have to be more flexible than ever if he’s to ensure his side beat the odds to stay in the top tier this season.
The Blades have given a solid account of themselves so far, picking up five points from their opening five games thanks to a win over Crystal Palace and very handy draws away from home against Bournemouth and Chelsea. Given that they’ve lost their last two home games since that victory over the Eagles, they may feel more comfortable heading out on the road again here where you can back them for a win at 5/1 with BetVictor.
We don’t see them taking anything from this trip to Merseyside though, given how strong Everton have been in front of their own fans of late. Goodison Park has seemed like a real fortress of late with the Toffees winning their last six league games at the ground, keeping five clean sheets in the process including against Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. Given that Sheffield United failed to score at home to Southampton last week, we can see a home win to nil here at 8/5 with Ladbrokes.
Richarlison’s inconsistency is a constant source of frustration to Everton fans but he put in one of his better displays in the Toffees’ last home game, scoring twice in the win over Wolves and he did find the net in the EFL Cup at Lincoln City before that. We’re backing another goal from the 22 year old here at 13/8 with Coral.
