Everton News and Form
Everton rescued a point in a 2-2 draw at home against Watford last weekend, thanks to a 96th-minute goal. That was a struggle for them after having taken the lead in the game. Everton have earned back to back draws in the league now. But they are winless in their last three and have only banked one victory in their last five played (home and away combined) in a W1 D3 L1 sequence. Away from home, this season in the EPL Everton are only W1 D3 L3. They are winless in their last three away from Goodison and haven’t been great out on the road this term.
Everton have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last three league outings now. The Toffees haven’t been winning at the halftime break in any of their away games this season. In fact, they have been level at the break in all but one of their road games. Four of their away half-time scorelines have been 0-0 draws. Everton have conceded 70% of their away goals in the second half of matches and in total have kept just one away clean sheet. They have only scored in one of their last three away games. They have tallied seven goals in seven away games, failing to score in 43% of those fixtures.
