Everton – Sunderland PREDICTION & TIPS
The third round of the EFL Cup saw the Premier League clubs come to the party, and the first interesting confrontations were taking shape. This one between Toffees and Black Cats will be worth the detour, between two formations in difficulty. Slated (4-0) at the MU of his former striker Lukaku this weekend, the Mersey club was propelled to a sad 18th place. Ronald Koeman’s men, who are used to oddball on the European squad, have to stop a series of four consecutive defeats three days before Bournemouth’s reception. Side Sunderland, the descent in Championship was rather poorly negotiated. Only 21st with six points picked up in eight days, the Simon Grayson players, determined to quickly find the top of the table, certainly do not make this competition a priority … A chance for Everton?
Sunderland lost in 3 of his last 4 outings and struggled to find his rhythm in the Championship (21st).
Everton has won three of his five official games at Goodison Park this season.
The Black Cats are bogged down in the hell of the English D2 and know that a loss of unnecessary influx to Goodison Park will be detrimental before a decisive match against Cardiff. We expect to see a partly overhauled and undefined training.
On the contrary, Everton will throw all his forces into this EFL Cup within his reach.
Everton Sunderland – Our forecast
Everton is out of inspiration offensive but evolves to a completely different level than that of a Sunderland team already badly in Championship. We know that the schedule of the second English division is infernal (24 clubs) and the Black Cats certainly will not be bored too long with this competition. One expects nothing but a victory of Everton, without too much force.
