Everton v Nottingham Forest: Match Preview & Odds

Everton host Nottingham Forest in one of four Premier League fixtures scheduled for Sunday afternoon. With both teams struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League table, Sunday’s clash at Goodison Park is a massive six-pointer.

Form

Everton currently sit 16th in the Premier League with 27 points from their 32 matches whilst Nottingham Forest are one position and one point worse off than Sunday’s hosts. Both club’s hopes of staving off the threat of relegation have been hindered by a points deduction this season due to their financial irregularities. Everton have been docked a total of eight points for two separate PSR breaches whilst Nottingham Forest were docked four points last month.

On the pitch, Everton were on the receiving end of a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Monday whilst Nottingham Forest were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Wolves on Saturday.

Betting Tips

The winner of Sunday’s fixture will ease away from the relegation zone, making this a fixture of huge importance. A cagey encounter will certainly benefit the home side with matches featuring Everton producing the fewest goals in the Premier League this season. Only the league’s top three have conceded fewer goals than Everton whilst only Sheffield United have a lower goals for tally than the Toffees. Everton to win to nil could be a shrewd bet at 11/4 whilst under 2.5 match goals looks overpriced at 5/6.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin should return to the Everton starting eleven having missed the defeat at Chelsea through injury. Calvert-Lewin had scored in back-to-back matches prior to that and will once again be Everton’s most likely source of goals. You can back Dominic Calvert-Lewin at 11/2 to score first or 2/1 to score at any time.
