Key Stats

  • Everton have won three of their last six meetings with Sheff Utd, keeping clean sheets in two of those victories. The Toffees have also won each of their last four home games without conceding a single goal.
  • Sean Dyche's side don't often score more than two goals but do have a solid defence that has kept clean sheets in each of their last four matches at Goodison Park, so you can see why we're going for a 2-0 scoreline in favour of the hosts.
  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin top scores for Everton this season with seven Premier League goals and we're backing the striker to score against his former employers this weekend.

Player to watch – Idrissa Gueye

Everton's 34-year-old midfielder is out of contract this summer but his performances this season have deserved a new deal.

Everton never replaced Idrissa Gueye when he left the club to join PSG so it is imperative that they keep the veteran midfielder at the club for at least another season given the financial issues that surround them right now.

Playing a vital role in Everton's midfield

Gueye has chipped in with some vital goals towards the end of the season that have helped the Toffees secure their Premier League status and we wouldn't be surprised to see his name on the scoresheet against the Blades this weekend.
