The Toffees do still have a shot at a top-seven finish this season after having put up some good results recently. They did, however, crash to a poor loss at Fulham last weekend. Manchester United have some work to do in the race for a top-four finish and they are struggling for a bit of a form. Read our Everton v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Man Utd 23/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.)
The Toffees suffered a 2-0 loss out at Fulham last weekend, a disappointing result for them as they had been on a three-match winning streak prior to that. They have still won their last two at home though taking down Arsenal and Chelsea. Before that, they had held out for a draw against rivals Liverpool at Goodison Park. So they have upped their game there and it leaves them at W8 D4 L5 this season on home soil in the top flight. Everton have not conceded in any of their last three league home games.
Everton have averaged 1.4 goals per home game this season but now have taken a clean sheet in 41% of their home games. Home and away combined they have five clean sheets in their last seven league outings. Less than half of the league games this season at Goodison Park have gone over 2.5 goals. Everton’s last four home wins have been with a clean sheet as well. Everton have been level at the halftime break in 10 of their 17 home games in the EPL. They have opened the scoring in 10 of their home fixtures this season.
Man Utd were 2-1 winner at home over Everton last weekend
The Red Devils are on a three-match winning streak over the Toffees
Everton are winless in eight against United in all competitions
United are undefeated in their last three league trips to Goodison
The Red Devils have not managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last nine games in all competitions. After bowing out of the Champions League against Barcelona in midweek, it’s all hands to the pump in trying to get a top-four league finish. Manchester United have lost two of their last four league fixtures and both defeats in a sequence were away from home. So that is a two-match losing streak that the Red Devils are on away from Old Trafford at the moment, the defeats coming at Arsenal and then Wolves. The overall away form of Manchester United this season in the Premier League is W9 D2 L6.
Manchester United have scored 31 goals on their travels which is an average of 1.8 per game. 71% of all of Manchester United away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Red Devils have claimed a clean sheet in 29% of their road fixtures this season but they are without one in any of their last three away from home in the Premier League, none in their last six home and away combined. They do boast the fourth best away record in the top flight this season and they have been leading at the halftime break in seven away games. The Red Devils have not been involved in an away draw in any of their last nine.
Everton may well have a shot at this one given their recent results against strong opposition on home soil. Manchester United have looked a little bit short recently and the Red Devils may struggle to get something out of this trip to Goodison. Home win.

Fulham will be playing in the Championship next season and there have been no real signs that they are going to finish this season on any kind of positive note. They are currently on a nine-match losing streak in the Premier League and they have lost their last four at Craven Cottage as well. In their last fixture, they made a trip to Vicarage Road on to face Watford and suffered a 4-1 defeat. The home form of Fulham this season reads W4 D3 L9 and all four of those victories have been against sides who are currently sat inside the bottom seven in the Premier League.
Fulham have scored 19 goals this season at home but they have conceded at an average of exactly 2 goals per home game. Five of their last six home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. Fulham have managed to take a clean sheet in just one home fixture all season which was in a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield at the end of December. Fulham have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last 13 Premier League games, home and away they have not been involved in a draw in 14. The Cottagers have conceded at least two goals in each of their last 13 top-flight fixtures.
Everton took a 3-0 home win over Fulham in September
The Toffees are on a three-match winning streak against Fulham
Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings
Fulham are winless in their last four EPL home games against Everton (D2 L2)
Everton are on an upswing of form at the moment with a three-match winning streak going. Within that sequence, they have taken home victories over Chelsea and Arsenal. The last time out on the road they produced a 2-0 victory at West Ham which leaves them with two wins in their last three on the road (L1). Everton’s overall away record this season is W5 D3 L8 which is nothing particularly special. Three of those five away wins have appeared in their last five road fixtures.
Everton have averaged 1.4 goals per away game while they have conceded at an average 1.3. The Toffees have earned a clean sheet in 25% of their road fixtures this season. Overall home and away they have banked a clean sheet in five of their last six played now so they have tightened up dramatically. Each of their last three away wins have been with a clean sheet as well. Everton have conceded 76% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures this season. They have been level at the halftime break in nine of their 16 road games.
This could be an exciting open game. Everton have come into form while Fulham haven’t done a bad job of putting the ball in the back of the net at home recently. Everton to win & both teams to score looks a good fit.

The Toffees have put back to back league wins together after picking up a good away win at West Ham on the weekend. It’s back to home soil for a big challenge on Sunday though as they play host to Arsenal. The Gunners moved up to third with a win over Newcastle last Monday. Read our Everton v Arsenal betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 2nd, 2019 at 11:33 p.m.)
Everton beat West Ham 2-0 on the weekend to make it back to back league successes for them. They have improved to a W3 D1 L1 record now in their last five outings. Their home record stands at W7 D4 L5 this easy and they scored a fantastic 2-0 home win over Chelsea in their last home fixture. That is, however, their only home win this season against a side in the top half of the table. In such games, Everton are W1 D2 L4 this season. The Toffees have produced an average of 1.4 goals per home game, with less than half of their home fixtures going over 2.5 goals.
They have banked a clean sheet in 38% of home games and their defence has improved drastically since the end of February. They have four clean sheets in their last five at the moment. If you look back, each to their last five league wins, home and away have all been with a clean sheet. Can they do enough to keep Arsenal at arm’s length? Only two of their seven home wins have been by a one-goal margin. Everton have been level at half time in 10 of their 16 home games. The Toffees have scored 61% of their home goals after the half time break.
Arsenal were 2-0 home winners over Everton in September
The Gunners won 5-2 on their last visit to Goodison Park
Everton are winless in four against the Gunners
Arsenal have scored at least goals in each of their last four against Everton
The Gunners earned a solid 2-0 home win over Newcastle last Monday. That leaves them with five wins in their last six games (D1) and they have some important momentum behind them now in the race for a top-four finish. The Gunners though have only won five away games this season (D4 L5) so have had their issues on the road. In their last away game, they picked up a good point against rivals Spurs. But it left them with only one win in their last eight away games (D3 L4). That lone win in that sequence was against Huddersfield.
The Gunners have scored 26 goals away from home at an average of 1.86 per game. 79% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Arsenal are still on the hunt for their first away clean sheet of the season. More than half of their away games have gone over 3.5 goals. Four of Arsenal’s five away wins have been by a one-goal margin only. Just twice have they been leading at half time away from home. That is despite them having opened the scoring in 9 of 14 away games. Home and away, Arsenal are on a nine-match scoring streak in the league. Only Man City and Liverpool have scored more league goals than Arsenal this season.
There is far more at stake for Arsenal here and despite their poor away form this season, they should have the bit between their teeth. Everton have improved recently, but their defence is going to come under pressure in this one. Away win.

The Hammers earned a thrilling home win over Huddersfield last time out on the league and will be looking to extend some great home form that they have going. Everton pay a visit looking to build some momentum after getting a home success over Chelsea last time out. Read our West Ham v Everton betting tips for more.
West Ham 31/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 24th, 2019 at 10:18 p.m.)
The Hammers were 3-2 down at home against Huddersfield in their last match with less than ten minutes on the clock. But then Javier Hernandez rescued them with two late goals to give the Hammers maximum points. That moved them onto a three-match winning streak at home and they are undefeated in six now at the London Stadium in the EPL. The Irons have scored well at an average of 1.7 goals per home games. They have been far from watertight though and have conceded an average of 1.5 goals per home game.
The Hammers have earned a clean sheet in 19% of home games only. West Ham’s overall home record is W8 D3 L5 for the season and they are on a six-match scoring streak at the moment there. Five of their eight home successes have been by a margin of two goals this season. West Ham have scored at least two goals in each of their last three home games and they have netted 63% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures.
West Ham earned a 3-1 win at Everton in September
The Hammers have won the last two meetings 3-1
Each of the last three meetings have produced at least four goals
Everton are winless in their last three visits to West Ham in the EPL
After being heavily outplayed in the first half of their home game against Chelsea, Everton managed to turn things around and walked off with a 2-0 success. That was their first win against a top-eight side this season, home and away. The Toffees are at W4 D3 L8 this season away from home which is a really poor return. They have lost four of their last six on the road. Three of the four away wins that they have earned this season have been against sides currently sat in the bottom four.
Everton have taken a clean sheet in 20% of their away games, with 60% of their road games making it over the 2.5 goal line. Six of Everton’s away defeats this season have been by a margin of one goal only. They have been sat level at the break in 19 of their 31 fixtures this season and in 9 of their 15 away from home. The Toffees have conceded 76% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures. Overall home and away, they have take a clean sheet in three of their last four now.
West Ham are in good home form and have enough to get at Everton. The Toffees have really only enjoyed successes away from home against the weaker sides. They will have their hands full here. Home win.

Everton have ended up having a season to forget and they have enjoyed very little cheer as of late with four losses in their last six league games. But then Chelsea will turn up with still a little bit of shaky away form behind them. Read our Everton v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 14th, 2019 at 8.10 p.m.)
The Toffees went down 3-2 at Newcastle last weekend in what was another disappointing result for them. That is six defeats in their last eight top-flight games now. Their home record is W6 D4 L5 this season but they have struggled for returns there recently. Everton have lost four of their last six home games (W1 D1). The Toffees have won only one of their last seven on home soil. In their last home game, they dug in to earn a 0-0 draw against Liverpool.
Everton are W2 L5 from seven home games this season against sides currently in the top half of the table. Everton have scored an average of 1.4 goals per home game this season. They have only scored in two of their last five at Goodison Park. They are without a goal in two there. Everton have been level at half time in nine of their fifteen home games.
The last two league meetings have ended in a 0-0 draw
Chelsea are undefeated in six against Everton in all competitions
Both teams have scored in none of the last five league meetings
Everton have won one of their last four at home against Chelsea in the EPL (D1 L2)
The Blues needed a late equaliser from Eden Hazard to collect a point at home against Wolves last weekend. That leaves them unbeaten in three at least in the Premier League. They did pick up three points in their last road game, which was a 2-1 success at Fulham, but the Blues were under pressure in the game. That win at Craven Cottage snapped a three-match losing streak Chelsea were on away from home.
They had failed to score in any of those three defeats as well. Four of the five defeats this season from Chelsea have happened against current top-seven sides. Their overall away record is at W8 D1 L5 for the season. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 36% of their away games and they have scored at an average of 1.5 goals per home games. 79% of their top-flight away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals this season. The Blues are without a clean sheet in their last four away games. Chelsea have opened the scoring in 9 of 14 away games.
The draw hast the most appeal in this one. Everton dug in there against Liverpool in their last home game and they can contain the lesser threat of Chelsea. The Blues are still struggling to find a different level as shown last week against Wolves.

Everton frustrated their rivals Liverpool in last weekend’s Merseyside derby. That was a good point for them. They head out on the road to the northeast on the weekend to face Newcastle. The Magpies had some positive form snapped last weekend with a loss against West Ham. Read our Newcastle v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on 7th March 2019 at 6:07 p.m.)
Newcastle had strung together a good three-match undefeated streak of form. That came undone last weekend in a 2-0 loss at West Ham. They are W4 D1 L2 in their last seven which is positive from them. Overall the Magpies are at W6 D1 L8 for the season on home soil, and they have produced some fantastic home results recently. They are on a four-match winning streak at St James’ Park. One of those successes was a victory over Manchester City as well. Newcastle have only conceded one goal in their last four home games.
Newcastle have produced 16 goals in their home campaign this season so it has not been a particularly high output from them. However, they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four Premier League home fixtures. In fact, of the 16 home goals scored in total, nine of them have been produced in their last four home games. Newcastle have returned a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures. Each of their last five games, home and away have ended up finishing under the 2.5 goalline. There are only two sides currently in the top flight who have produced fewer the goals this season and Newcastle have.
There was a 1-1 tie between them at Goodison Park in December
Four of the last five meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
Newcastle are winless in six EPL games against the Toffees
Everton have three clean sheets in their last four visits to St James’ Park
Everton stuck to their guns last weekend and produced a 0-0 home draw against rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby. While they did hold their ground defensively, they did not look much of a threat going forward. That result leaves Everton at just W1 D1 L3 in their last five league games. They have only managed to score in one of their last four, home and away. Out on their travels, this season in the top flight Everton are at W4 D3 L7 this season. In their last six road fixtures, Everton have produced a mixed return of three wins and three defeats so there has been little consistency from them.
Both teams have scored in just two of Everton’s last ten league games, home and away. Everton have produced an average of 1.3 goals per road games this season and that is the exact rate at which they have conceded away from Goodison Park as well. Everton have been level at the halftime break in 18 of the 29 league fixtures this term. Still, even with that high record, Everton have not had an away draw in any of their last eight on the road. The goals which they have conceded on their travels 72% of them have been after the halftime break. Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored three of their last five league goals.
There is nothing particularly special or threatening about Everton at the moment. Given that Newcastle have been watertight at the back on home soil, the Magpies may be able to extend their home winning form. Home win.

Liverpool put in a good performance in midweek to thump Watford at Anfield. After some patchy form that was just the boost which they needed. Everton also had a good midweek win but the Toffees have struggled against the better sides in the league this season. Read our Everton v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 10:34 p.m.)
The Toffees secured a 3-0 away win at Cardiff in midweek, snapping a three-match losing streak that they were on. Everton have a home record of W6 D3 L5 this season and their form there recently hasn’t been great. They are W1 L3 in their last four home games. Everton have taken just one point at home this season from five games against teams currently in the top half of the table. That’s been a really poor return by them. In total Everton have scored 21 and have conceded 21 goals at Goodison Park this season.
The Toffees have a clean sheet in 29% of home games this season. They have conceded a total of five goals in their last two home games, defeat against Wolves and Manchester City. It has been far from convincing from them and all of their wins, home and away have only been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. The Toffees have opened the scoring in eight of their league home games this season. Will they have enough to challenge the Reds?
Liverpool were 1-0 winners in the first Merseyside derby this season
Everton’s last league win over Liverpool was in 2009
Liverpool have won three of their last four EPL home games against Everton (D1)
Both teams have scored in each of the last three meetings at Anfield
The Reds produced a fine home performance in midweek as they beat Watford 5-0. That was a good response from them as their form has dropped lately. Liverpool are W2 D3 in their last five games now. Overall their record away from home this season’s W9 D4 L1 and they are undefeated in three on their travels. Liverpool have only drawn their last two out on the road though, limp performances against West Ham and Manchester United. Defensively they have been strong having conceded just eight goals in fourteen road games.
Liverpool have averaged 1.7 goals per road game, taking a clean sheet exactly half of their fixtures away from Anfield. Just twice this season on their travels have Liverpool been losing at the halftime break. The Reds have scored 67% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures. Liverpool have opened the scoring in all but four of their road games. Each of Liverpool’s last three games away from home have gone under 2.5 goals. The Reds have just two goals in their last three on the road.
Everton have been totally unreliable against the better sides in the division this season. Liverpool looked back to their best in midweek and they are value to go and get the win at Goodison Park. Liverpool to win.

Everton come for a visit and they look unsettled having lost their last three in a row. Read our Cardiff v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
The Bluebirds suffered a 5-1 home reverse against Watford on Friday night, which was a big blow. They had won their previous two league games. It leaves Cardiff with W5 D2 L7 record on home soil this season and W1 D1 L2 in their last four on home soil. The Bluebirds have returned 16 home goals this season and 64% of their fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. That is because the Bluebirds have conceded at an average of two goals per home fixture.
Cardiff had taken back to back clean sheets at home before the loss against Watford. Cardiff have taken a clean sheet in 29% of their home games, and five of the seven league victories that they have recorded (home and away) have been by a one-goal margin. The Bluebirds have been level at the break in eight of their fourteen home games. 62% of the home goals produced by them have been in the first half of matches. They have only opened the scoring in two league home games this term though.
Everton earned a 1-0 homer win over Cardiff earlier this season
Cardiff are winless in four against the Toffees (W2 D1)
Each of the last five meetings have ended under 2.5 goals
Everton have three clean sheets in their last four against the Bluebirds
The Toffees suffered a 1-0 loss at Watford last time out in league action, which left them on a three-match losing streak. They should be well rested though after not having played over the weekend. Still, their form has been really poor lately and they have actually lost six of their last eight (W2) in the EPL. Out on the road, Everton have managed just the three wins this season (D3 L7). All three of those though were against sides currently in the bottom half of the table.
However, they have lost by a one-goal margin at Brighton and Southampton this season, two of the current bottom five. Everton have scored 15 goals in their 13 away games this season with 54% of their road fixtures ending over 2.5 goals. The Toffees have been level at the break in 9 of their 13 away games. Of those nine half time draws, seven of them were 0-0 score lines. Everton have conceded 72% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.
Everton’s form has been really poor lately but they will be the fresher of the two sides. That should help them get something out of the game. But we have to look towards the draw though as Cardiff need to stick in there at home in games like this.

There was some big action in the Next Premier League Manager To Go market this weekend. On Saturday, Everton boss Marco Silva was the name at the head of the list as he watched his side crumble yet again. But 24 hours later it was Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri who had replaced Silva as the most-backed man to go after his side were destroyed by Man City.
Maurizio Sarri 4/5
Marco Silva 3/1
Claude Puel 5/1
Claudio Ranieri 16/1
Rafa Benitez 16/1
Neil Warnock 25/1
Manuel Pellegrini 40/1
Roy Hodgson 40/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 10th, 2019 at 7:23 p.m.)
Sarri is 4/5 to be the next boss to lose his job in the top flight* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 10th, 2019 at 7:23 p.m.). Chelsea paid a visit to the Etihad with no away form behind them and the Londoners were torn to shreds in a 6-0 defeat. Granted anyone would have found Man City hard to handle because they were brilliant, but it further highlighted the demise of Chelsea.
The Blues dropped down to sixth at the close of the weekend and things are not going well at the Bridge. Sarri, who has looked increasingly frustrated, has called his players out for not getting motivated enough this season. He seems to have been picking at their star player Eden Hazard and has rapidly been looking as if he has been losing his way. Chelsea really pushed the boat out to get the Italian in the summer.
Will they take lessons from the likes of Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp and Man City with Pep Guardiola and give Sarri the time he needs to build the Blues back to greatness? Chelsea are rarely a club who looks in that direction though. They demand immediate success and that could spell trouble for Sarri.
They have to try and deal with Man City in the EFL Cup final in a couple of weeks and their next league game is against Tottenham.
Up in the northeast, Marco Silva must be feeling immense pressure too. Everton had been pursuing him for so long and now they have him, they have started to go backwards. The Toffees lost 1-0 at Watford on Saturday, their third straight league defeat and their sixth in their last eight played. After visiting Cardiff, Everton then go to Anfield in the Premier League. Will a derby defeat be the final straw for the partnership?

Watford are just missing a winning touch from their current form, which has been pretty solid and stable. They have lost just one of their last six played and will be looking to make the most of home advantage in this one. Everton will go into this one after back to back defeats. Read our Watford v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
The Hornets drew again last weekend as they played out a 0-0 draw at Brighton. They came under some pressure in the game as well, keeper Ben Foster keeping Watford in it. That is four draw matches in their last six played now for Watford (W1 D1). However, their performances at Vicarage Road against teams currently in the top half of the table are worth noting. They are W1 L5 from six against top ten opponents this season. So that’s been a pretty poor return. Overall they have a W5 D2 L5 home return.
Watford have scored 16 home goals and have conceded 18. A high percentage of 75% of their games at Vicarage Road have gone over 2.5 goals. They have earned a clean sheet in a quarter of their home games and in two of their last three home and away combined. Three of Watford’s five home wins have been by a one-goal margin. The Hornets have scored 69% of their goals at home in the second half of fixtures this season. Just four times they have opened the scoring at home and they have conceded in 75% of home fixtures.
There was an entertaining 2-2 draw between these two earlier this season
Watford have won their last two at home against Everton, unbeaten in three
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings
Six of the last eight comings-together have gone over 2.5 goals
The Toffees lost against Wolves last weekend in the top flight and then had an extra shift in midweek, suffering another loss against Manchester City. That has left Everton with a W3 L5 record in their last eight top-flight games. Overall this season they have only managed to put together a W3 D3 L6 record on their travels. It has been three losses in their last four on the road, the only exception being a 1-0 win out at bottom side Huddersfield. Everton still haven’t won an away game this season against any of the current top-ten side.
Everton have returned 15 goals in their away games this season, having conceded 19. They have only earned the two clean sheets away from Goodison Park in this season’s EPL. They have been level at the break in eight of their thirteen road games. Six of those eight were 0-0 half time scores. Their loss at Man City on Wednesday saw them have a four-match scoring streak snapped. Everton have conceded a heavy bulk of their away goals this season in the second half of fixtures.
Everton have been in decline but Watford have struggled for wins at home against the better sides this season. The thing about the Hornets is that they are capable of playing well at times and may have enough to edge this.
