Everton Preview – Can the Toffees seal a vital three points?

Everton had a miserable campaign and only just survived last season, and they have made a slow start to this term. The Merseysiders have taken no points from their opening two league fixtures.

On the opening weekend of the 2022-23 season, Everton were narrowly beaten by Chelsea at Goodison Park, with a Jorginho penalty proving to be the only difference between the two teams. Frank Lampard’s side then lost 2-1 to Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa at Villa Park last Saturday.

Our betting prediction:
Nott’m Forest to score first

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1212 GMT, Friday 19 August)

If Everton want to keep themselves away from danger this term, these are the types of games they must be winning. After back-to-back losses, can the Toffees bounce back with three points in front of their home fans? The hosts are available at 10/11.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Will the Reds build on West Ham win?

Nottingham Forest are already off the mark this season, as Steve Cooper’s men won their first home fixture last week. They started life back in the Premier League with a defeat at Newcastle United, though the Reds gave a good account of themselves at St James’ Park.

They were the underdogs in last Sunday’s game against David Moyes’ West Ham at the City Ground. It was a close game and Nottingham Forest certainly rode their luck at times, but Taiwo Awoniyi’s goal on the stroke of half time gave Forest a memorable 1-0 win over the Hammers.

The reverse match at the City Ground that year went Everton’s way, as a Duncan Ferguson brace gave the Toffees a 2-0 win. The Merseysiders have won four of the last five meetings.
