It’s almost that time of the week! The weekend, which means pints, food, trips to IKEA and of course, Friday night football.
Time to take refuge on your favourite spot on the sofa or in the pub. Crystal Palace fans are making the 242 mile trip up to Liverpool this Friday, to play Everton at Goodison Park.
Ronald Koeman has had a bleak 10 days or so. He fell foul to The Toffees’ old-boy, Steven Naismith, as he found the net in a 2-0 League Cup drubbing. His unbeaten record was left in tatters last weekend, as Bournemouth beat The Toffees 1-0 and sent them into disarray.
They were the coupon-busting team of the week, not to mention Romelu Lukaku who let down 65% of Hotshot Jackpot customers with his inability to find the net!
This week, we are hoping Everton can bring us a little more success, a little treat to start the weekend off right!
They host Palace, the lads who love a bed sheet banner and a 16-year-old ‘Ultra’. The Glaziers are on a roll, with three successive wins under their belt. Last week, they put on a fine performance to come back from behind against a failing Sunderland.
This game gives Everton the opportunity to climb to second place, and Palace could potentially reach the heights of third.
We could be looking at a high-scoring thriller here, folks. The visitors have notched up nine goals in their last three games to the home-side’s six. In the last 10 meetings between the two sides, over 3.5 goals has featured in 50% of the fixtures and is currently on-site.
Of these games, Palace have found themselves victorious just three times out of ten. Despite their recent run of form, it’s hard to overlook the success Ronald Koeman has brought to a dilapidated Everton side.
With both teams finding the net with relative ease, Both Teams To Score looks a worthy bet here. Everton to win and BTTS is currently and looks a decent punt to start your weekend.
Romelu Lukaku has found the net three times in the last four meetings between the sides, and despite his performance last weekend, he has started the season well for both club and country. He has four goals in the league, one assist and a total of 11 attempted shots on target. Get the Big Belgian to score anytime and Everton to win at
