Everton News and Form – Will Everton keep winning home form going?

Everton have won both home games this season in the Premier League, the victories happening against Watford and Wolves. The two wins were both by a one-goal margin. That moved them onto a six-match winning streak at home in the Premier League, rolling over from last season.

So they should be in pretty good spirits for this one, despite their away from being in the gutter (D1 L2). Their two wins this season at Goodison Park, it should be noted, were against the current bottom two in the league. Sheffield United are a bottom-six side currently.

Everton 1-0 Half Time Score


Last weekend Everton suffered a 3-1 loss at Bournemouth. So there are vulnerabilities in their game, they just show up less at home. Richarlison is top scorer for them this season with two goals (both at Goodison Park). The Toffees have been leading at the half time break and at full time in each of their last five home matches in the top flight.

Three of their four goals at Goodison Park have been scored inside the first fifteen minutes of games. Of their tally of five goals in total this season (home and away), four have been goals giving them the lead in fixtures.

Sheffield United News and Form – Can Blades raid Goodison Park?

Sheffield United suffered a 1-0 defeat at home against Southampton last weekend. That was despite them being all over their opponents. The Blades just couldn’t find a way through, couldn’t get that little bit of quality together in the final third.

Situations like that are costly points dropped for a newly promoted team. Sheffield United are left at W1 D2 L2 this season after last weekend’s result. Their lone win this term happened at home against Crystal Palace. The Blades are undefeated on the road.

It has been back to back draws on the road for the Blades at Bournemouth and Chelsea, which is a pretty good return. There is no margin for the kind of wastefulness that beset Sheffield United last weekend. They will be missing striker Billy Sharp because of his red card last weekend.

All five goals that United have scored this season happened in the second half of fixtures. Just once have they opened the scoring in a game in this campaign. Sheffield United have been leading for an average of eight minutes (per match) this season.

Everton v Sheffield United Predictions

Everton to win: The Toffees can get another good three points on home soil. We would expect them to concede chances against the Blades though, who are not afraid to have a go. Things didn’t work out for United last weekend and that may end up being the same here. Everton to win by a one-goal margin.
