Everton vs Brentford

, KO: 17:30 Apr 27, 2024, Goodison Park

Everton will endeavour to make it three Premier League home wins in the space of six days when they entertain Brentford at Goodison Park on Saturday evening.

After triumphing 2-0 in their relegation six-pointer with Nottingham Forest last Sunday, the Toffees have since gone on to topple arch-rivals Liverpool by the same scoreline.

That pair of victories has hauled Sean Dyche’s side eight points clear of the relegation zone, with just four rounds of fixtures remaining.

As such, the Blues can all but guarantee their status in the top-flight for another season by beating Brentford on Saturday.

The Bees have also boosted their own survival hopes thanks to back-to-back victories, the most recent of which was a landslide 5-1 victory at Luton.

Thomas Frank’s team hold a ten point buffer over the bottom-three and now look assured of a fourth successive season of Premier League football.

How the bookies view it: Toffees set for four on the trot

Everton, who are bidding to make it four home wins on the bounce, are 7/5 favourites on Bet 365.

Brentford are as big as 19/10 (Bet 365) to record back-to-back wins away from home for the first time this season while a point apiece at Goodison Park pays out at 13/5 (William Hill)  

Recent head to head: Bees looking to rediscover sting

Everton have claimed top honours from each of the last two meetings between the sides, with Sean Dyche steering his side to a 3-1 victory in September’s reverse fixture.

Brentford have recorded just one win at Goodison Park since 1946, with that solitary success coming via a 3-2 victory back in May 2022. 

Players to watch: Calvert-Lewin to bully Brentford

Dominic Calver-Lewin looked unplayable at times in Everton's 2-0 win over Liverpool on Wednesday night, and the Blues forward can be backed at 12/5 on BetVictor to make the net bulge against Brentford this weekend.

Yoane Wissa bagged a brace in Brentford’s 5-1 win at Luton last time out, and the Bees forward stands out at 4/5 on Bet 365 to register a shot on target at Goodison Park on Saturday evening.

Predicted lineups

Vitalii Mykolenko is unlikely to feature this weekend after suffering an ankle injury during Everton’s 2-0 win over Liverpool.

Brentford have no injury concerns and could name an unchanged side from the one who made light work of Luton last Saturday.

Everton: Pickford; Godfrey, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Young; Harrison, Garner, Gueye, McNeil; Doucoure; Calvert-Lewin

Brentford: Flekken; Ajer, Collins, Pinnock; Reguilon, Jensen, Janelt, Damsgaard; Mbeumo, Wissa, Lewis-Potter

Anything else catch the eye? Juice in Janelt foul price

Brentford’s Vitaly Janelt has been chalked up at 4/5 on Bet 365 to commit just one foul during this contest and that price looks too big to ignore.

Whilst the German midfielder is averaging just 0.7 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season, there has been a marked increase in Janelt’s foul per-game tally in recent weeks.

In fact, Janelt has given away at least one free-kick in six of his last seven outings for Brentford, racking up a combined total of nine fouls across that stretch of games.

What’s more, Janelt has already been booked eight times in the Premier League this season, so siding with him to commit just one foul at 4/5 (Bet 365) on Saturday evening is a price that definitely represents value.
