Everton vs Huddersfield
Saturday 1st September
The next of the simultaneous fixtures is at Goodison Park, where Marco Silva’s Everton hopes to continue their impressive start to life in the current premier league season.
The Toffees have been quite interesting to watch, however, they have to watch their disciplinary records as the loss or their goal machine, Richarlison last weekend to a very avoidable red card will haunt them at some points.
Losing a two-goal lead must hurt Everton after Bournemouth equalized last weekend, they will look to right the wrongs this weekend.
Huddersfield are the poorest side in the premier league, give or take, they look a certain candidate for the drop; their poor form in front of goal didn’t start today, they got promoted to the premier league with a negative goal difference, the first time that would happen in the history of the league, the Terriers don’t score goals, if you don’t score you can’t win games, they do have a brilliant manager in David Wagner, but he won’t go in there to turn in the ball himself.
The goalless draw at home to Cardiff explains where the problem lies for the Terriers, they pressed and fought, but they just don’t know how to drag the round leather past the goal line.
Everton will teach them a lesson or two, Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun sure know where the goal post is, they have scored in all the games they have played so far, they will not be kind to Huddersfield.
There have been three fixtures between these two, Everton won them all.
Verdict: Everton to win
