Reasons Everton vs Sunderland Tip
Everton is currently heading in an entirely opposite direction than from the desired one. The Toffees are extremely bad at the moment. It seems that Ronald Koeman might get some problems regarding his current job. The same situation is with Sunderland. After a solid start, they are slowly slipping down in the Championship standings. Instead of fighting for the promotion it seems that they will fight to avoid relegation.
At the start of the season, we predicted that Everton might have some chances to win the title. With a strong defense and efficient attack, they were looking pretty reliable. At this moment this team is awful. Currently, they do not have a victory in the previous 6 games. The most recent 4 ended with their loss, and there is even more bad news. Everton hasn’t scored a goal in those matches, and on the other hand, are they allowed 12. So we might say that they are the team with the worst current form in the Premier League. Last game against Manchester United in which they have lost 0-4, was the first one after 6 straight in which we saw a moderate number of goals. Both teams not to score was present in the latest 4 in a row. The pressure is rising on Ronald Koeman, and he has to find a solution to wake up his team.
The Black Cats haven’t won in 4 consecutive events. After three defeats in a row, they managed to get one point away from home, against Hull City 1-1. Sunderland is only one position above the relegation zone which is highly surprising. Before the start of the season, many predicted that this team would recover immediately from the relegation and try to bounce back in the Premier League.
The biggest problem of this assembly is the defense, and in the latest 8 games, they conceded the least one goal. Meanwhile, the attack hasn’t been convincing, and Sunderland scored only 7 goals in 8 Championship games. Away from home, Cats are stable with 2 victories 2 draws and one loss. Both teams have scored in those games 4 times in 5 events.
Everton vs Sunderland Head to Head
Everton defeated Sunderland in the last campaign of the Premier League in both games. And they did it pretty persuasive without conceding one single goal. At Goodison Park, the result was 2-0, and away from home, Everton was even more confident 3-0.
Everton vs Sunderland Prediction and Betting tips
The bad performances of Everton have to stop somewhere.
Although nothing could surprise us, we believe that they are going to win here.
