Everton – Sheff Utd Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 10:00

Everton won the last 2 out of 3 fixtures against Sheffield Utd. They will need a lot from Richarlison and Sigurdson in this game in order for them to win the vital 3 points. Everton is in a solid form this season. Historically they do not have trouble defeating them. For this game manager, Marco Silva will have all of his players ready to contribute and earn an important victory away from home. But their last game defeat against Bournemouth came as a surprise.

If we take everything I said, it points to the home win with over 2.5 goals scored. I looked at their recent performances and their styles of play, as well as other factors like tradition while I was crafting my selection. Both of these teams started this season okay. Both teams will have their chances to win but my opinion is that Everton gets all 3 points.

Theyve got a composed and focused squad that, so far, has been able to register a string of impressive results and performances to go right along with it. If they can carry on with this current trajectory, then theres no reason to believe that they will be in any kind of realistic danger when it comes to the relegation battle. If anything, they could have top half ambitions of their own. Few couldve anticipated that Sheffield United would make quite such a confident start to life back in the big time.

Given that Sheffield United failed to score at home to Southampton last week, we can see a home win to nil here at8/5 withLadbrokes. We dont 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.

Theyve got a strong squad, a lot of potential within their ranks and the experience necessary to push on towards the top half of the table and potentially even beyond. Despite some inconsistencies in their start to the season, Everton still have a great deal to be excited about as we look ahead to the future. Theyve been overshadowed by local rivals Liverpool for far too long now, and theyre putting the pieces in place that will allow them to push back against the red half of Merseyside.

Everton seem to struggle away from home even more so than most clubs, but at Goodison Park, they have a bit more of an edge to them and were expecting to see them bounce back in a big way against the Blades. If they can get off to a hot start then we can picture them controlling the pace of the game in the middle of the park, shutting Sheffield United down in the process. Its going to be frantic and even quite end to end at times, but in the end, the Toffees will take control.

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 theyve now won 6 consecutive league games at Goodison Park. 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.

Their last season Championship form must be forgotten as Premier League is a completely different animal. Late equalizing goal by their charismatic long time striker Billy Sharp secured them an important away point. They will have all of their players ready to play against Everton. It will be vital for them that he plays well in this game. Chris Wilders team uses center defenders as wingbacks which makes them very unpredictable on offense. Sheffield Utd are playing the most unique style of football in entire Europe. Against Bournemouth, they were evenly matched based on all parameters. Their playmaker and player that creates everything for them is Oliver Norwood who is a product of the Manchester United youth system.

This Week's Promos

His tactical innovations have won the side plenty of plaudits but he will have to be more flexible than ever if hes to ensure his side beat the odds to stay in the top tier this season. 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.

Iwobi made his senior debut with the Super Eagles on October 8, 2015, coming as a substitute for Ahmed Musa in a 2-0 loss to DR Congo. The pacey winger played for England at youth level, but he eventually went on to play for Nigeria. Speaking of his Premier League debut, Alex Iwobi played his first game for Arsenal in a 3-0 victory over Swansea City in October, 2015.
