Everton vs Sheffield United

, KO: 15:00 May 11, 2024, Goodison Park
Sheffield United

EVERTON will endeavour to make it five Premier League home wins in succession when they welcome Sheffield United to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Toffees have rallied in recent weeks to haul themselves away from relegation trouble, pocketing 10 points from the last 12 on offer.

Last time out, the Blues three-match winning run was brought to an end in a 1-1 draw at Luton Town, with Mark Walker’s call on the stalemate proving to be spot on.

With safety already assured, Sean Dyche will be keen to see his side put on a show in their final home game of the season.

In contrast, Sheffield United have already been relegated following a wretched season that has seen them pick up a mere three victories across their 36 top-flight outings so far.

The beleaguered Blades had more misery heaped on them last weekend when falling to a 3-1 defeat at home to Nottingham Forest.

How the bookies view it: Toffees to taste victory

Everton are heavy 4/9 favourites on Bet 365 to earn a fifth home win on the bounce.

Sheffield United picked up a draw in September’s reverse fixture but the same outcome here is as big as 4/1(Bet 365) while the visitors are an unfancied 13/2 (Bet 365) to emerge victorious.

Head to head: Blades looking for another breather

Sheffield United have avoided defeat in each of their last two Premier League meetings with Everton, picking up a 1-0 win when they last visited Goodison Park back in 2021.

Everton’s last success against the Blades was on Boxing Day 2020, with the Blues edging a tight contest 1-0 at Bramall Lane.

Players to watch: Dominic to do more damage

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored in four of his last five Premier League appearances, the most recent of which was against Luton last Friday night. The Toffees attacker is a tasty 6/5 on Bet 365 to breach the leakiest defence in the division this weekend.

Ben Brereton Diaz has netted six times in 12 outings since joining Sheffield United on loan in January and he looks overpriced to strike on Saturday at 10/3 (Bet 365).

Predicted line-ups

Injured trio Dele Alli, Nathan Patterson and Vitalii Mykolenko will all miss out again for Everton this weekend. 

Sheffield United’s Anel Ahmedhozic will serve a suspension after being sent off last week, while Mason Holgate is ineligible to participate against his parent club.

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

Sheffield United: Foderingham; Bogle, Robinson, Trusty, Osborn; Souza, Hamer, Arblaster,; Brereton Diaz, Archer, Brewster

Anything else catch the eye? Blues to bag low-key win

Everton are too short to side with at the above-mentioned price but merging a home win with under 4.5 goals will nudge the odds up to a backable 20/23 on Bet 365.

No fewer than 11 of the Toffees’ 12 Premier League wins this season have featured four goals or fewer and a high-scoring shootout looks unlikely here in what is little more than a glorified friendly.

It’s also worth noting that Sean Dyche’s side have kept a clean sheet in each of their seven top-flight triumphs at Goodison Park this term.

If you fancy Everton to extend that sequence to eight, then a Toffees win to nil will boost the price up to 13/8 on Bet 365.
