Everton comes to this match with a 1×0 defeat on the trip to Burnley, for the Premier League. Due to this negative phase, coach Marco Silva has been highly criticized and management considers this game as a litmus test for his future at the club. In general, the Portuguese coach favors the maintenance of possession of the ball and organized attacks, especially through the flanks: Alex Iwobi and Richarlison are very fast and competent players in transporting the ball to the attack. The main weaknesses of this team are especially in the offensive sector. For this game the coach could not count on Coleman, suspended, in addition to Gbamin and Delph, these with physical problems.

However, we point out that Londoners do not win two games in the English league, having lost their last home game against Crystal Palace by 1×2: Sébastien Haller scored the only goal of the team.

We point out that outsiders have difficulties in defensive stopped balls and in the organization of their defense. Outside of this game are Michail Antonio and Fabianski, both with physical problems.
