Bitesize Prediction: Everton vs Sheffield United – 11/05/24

Competition: Premier League

Market: Everton win

Odds: 4/7 @ 1xBet

Looking to extend on their recent Premier League purple patch, Everton will welcome Sheffield United to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Everton might have opened the New Year at the heart of another Premier League crisis, the Toffees have come roaring back in a spectacular fashion. Despite still dealing with a string of public financial issues behind the scenes at Goodison Park, Sean Dyche’s men find the mood in their camp at a season-high. Picking up a famous victory at bitter rivals Liverpool on April 24th as they secured a 2-0 victory, the former Burnley boss has seen his squad muster 10 points from their previous four Premier League appearances. Skyrocketing away from a bottom-three scrap and securing their top-flight status, Everton have also suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous seven outings. Conceding just a single goal in over 350 minutes of action, Saturday’s hosts will certainly be smelling a golden opportunity here. It should also be highlighted, Dyche’s side have won all of their last four consecutive appearances at Goodison Park by an aggregate score of 6-0.

As for the visitors, limping their way to an immediate Championship return, Sheffield United have endured a public Premier League crisis this season. Last seen suffering a collapse on home soil as they fell to a 3-1 loss at the hands of Nottingham Forest, Chris Wilder’s men have broken a string of unwanted records this year. Signing off April with a nightmare 5-1 drumming away at Newcastle, Saturday’s guests have lost all of their last five Premier League appearances by an aggregate score of 18-5. Coming under a huge amount of scrutiny on April 20th as they slumped to a 4-1 defeat against Burnley at Bramall Lane, Sheffield United have also continued to gain a reputation for their glaring defensive struggles. Sat rock-bottom of the table and mustering just 16 points from their 36 top-flight outings this season, Wilder’s downbeat squad should face another stern challenge this weekend. Given what has been a huge recent gulf in class, we are expecting a home victory on Saturday afternoon.
