Everton vs Boreham Wood: The Predictions

Everton face non-league opposition at Goodison Park in the 5th round of the FA Cup on Thursday night where Lampard will be hoping that his side can match the energy and effort his team has put into each of the three home games he has taken charge of so far. Boreham Wood aren't expected to beat the Toffees but the Premier League side are struggling this season and the visitors will be dreaming of a giant killing.

Everton to Win-to-Nil

We can't really see this game ending in anything but a win-to-nil for the Toffees. Everton aren't in good form but have won two of their last three home games under the guidance of Frank Lampard and we're backing the Premier League side to win and keep a clean sheet against Boreham Wood. The visitors have lost two of their last five matches in all competitions and have also failed to score in three of their last five matches in all competitions.

Andros Townsend to Score

Everton are bound to mix up their starting eleven somewhat on Thursday and even if he doesn't start the game, we're backing Andros Townsend to play his part in an Everton victory. Townsend already has 2-goals in the FA Cup this season, netting in each of the last two rounds for the Toffees, and has scored a further 3-goals in the Premier League. We're backing Townsend to score with 90-minutes against Boreham Wood on Thursday.

All you need to know ahead of Everton vs Boreham Wood

Can Boreham Wood pull off the greatest FA Cup upset of all time?

Everton played host to Man City at the weekend and if it hadn't been for a clear error by VAR, the Toffees might have snatched a point from the game. Everton gave a really good account of themselves against the best team in the league but in the end they were let down by one defensive error that set up Foden for a tap in 8-minutes from time. The Goodison crowd cheered their fans throughout and even at the final whistle and Lampard will take plenty of positives from the game.

Everton Predicted lineup – Begovic, Patterson, Mykolenko, Branthwaite, Holgate, Allan, Doucoure, Townsend, Gray, Gordon & Richarlison

Boreham Wood continued their promotion push at the weekend when they took on Eastleigh at Meadow Park. A solitary strike from Marsh in the 5th-minute proved enough to win the game for the home side. Thursday's clash at Goodison Park is the biggest in Boreham Wood's history and in a classy move, Everton have offered to pay for Boreham Wood's one-off kit for the match after it was decided that both of the visitors' current kits would have clashed with the Everton colours in one way or another.

Boreham Wood Predicted lineup – Ashby-Hammond, Stephens, Evans, Stevens, Comley, Raymond, Rees, Boden, Marsh, Lewis & Mendy
