Everton vs Nottingham Forest: Top Two Predictions

Everton have looked much more structured this season compared to last but are in desperate need of a new striker after having to play without one in their opening two league games. Premier League new boys Nottingham Forest last locked horns with Everton in 1999 and will be looking forward to their trip to Goodison Park after last weekend's 1-0 win over West Ham.

Everton to Win

Even though the Toffees have lost their opening two matches, we're backing the hosts to secure all 3pts on Saturday. Hopefully, the club will have a new striker in place by that time but if not, Rondon or Dele will have to start up front as Gordon has offered nothing in his opening two starts. Everton have won four of their last five games against Forest and the visitors lost their first away game of the season 2-0 at Newcastle.

Under 2.5 Goals

We're expecting this game to be tight, tense and lacking in goalmouth action as each of the last four league meetings between the two clubs has produced under 2.5 goals. Everton's lat home game witnessed fewer than three goals while four of Nottingham Forest's last six outings have seen under 2.5 goals scored, so you can see why we're not expecting a goal-fest this weekend.

The Toffees go in search of their first points of the season

Everton took time to get into any kind of rhythm away at Aston Villa and by the time they did, the home side went up the other end of the pitch and scored. In the second half, the Toffees had more of the ball and created more chances than Villa but it was the home side who scored the next goal 4-minutes from time. Everton sent on new signing Onana and he put in a cross that was sent into the back of the net by the unfortunate Digne to make it 2-1 with 3-minutes of the 90 remaining. Onana almost equalised late on and Everton could have had a penalty and will feel that they should have come away with a point.

Everton Predicted lineup – Pickford, Tarkowski, Coady, Holgate, Mykolenko, Patterson, Onana, Gray, Iwobi, Rondón & McNeil

Nottingham Forest faced a tough test at home against West Ham in what turned out to be a very close and competitive 90-minutes. A debut goal from Awoniyi in first-half stoppage-time put Forest into the lead and the hosts held firm during the second forty-five to claim their first goal, clean sheet and win of the season, much to the delight of the home fans.

Nottingham Forest Predicted lineup – Henderson, McKenna, Toffolo, Niakhaté, Worrall, Williams, Lingard, Mangala, O'Brien, Awoniyi & Johnson

Team News

Everton: Townsend, Godfrey, Mina, Calvert-Lewin, Gomes, Allan and Doucoure all look set to miss out through injury.
