Sheffield United received a rocket from Chris Wilder following Thursday’s tepid loss at Leicester and should be fired up for the visit of Everton.
The Blades have picked up 16 points out of 18 from their last six Premier League home games, while the Toffees have not travelled well when making tough trips.
They have lost eight of their nine away fixtures against top-half sides, so 23/20 for a home victory has to be the call for our initial Sheff Utd vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
United put in a lacklustre display at King Power Stadium and were very lucky to escape with just a 2-0 loss to Leicester.
Dean Henderson had to make a number of saves to keep the score down and was grateful for some moderate finishing by the Foxes.
“Every aspect of the game we were second best,” moaned Wilder. “We lacked care, aggression, enthusiasm – we lacked everything you need to get any form of a result.”
However, the Blades had previously been in superb form at Bramall Lane, following up wins over Tottenham and Wolves by crushing Chelsea 3-0.
Oliver Norwood wants more of that sparkle here, stating on the club website: “There’s still two games to go and we’re never happy with what we’ve done.
“Once the season is over, we can look back on it, but up until then we’ll keep pushing and see how far we can take it. We’ll keep going right until the end.”
Lys Mousset at least looked lively when coming off the bench at Leicester and scored in a 2-0 win over Everton on Merseyside earlier this season.
Looking at the Sheff Utd vs Everton odds, we like 4/1 for the French forward to score the final goal in this game.
Last Sheff Utd line-up: Henderson, Baldock, Stevens, O’Connell, Basham, Egan, Norwood, Osborn, Berge, McBurnie, McGoldrick.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton extended their unbeaten home league record to 11 matches when drawing 1-1 with Aston Villa, thanks to Theo Walcott’s late header levelling things up.
“The spirit was good, I think,” commented Carlo Ancelotti. “The attitude was good. We tried to play how we wanted.”
However, that looked a match low on quality and Villa really should have been 2-0 up but for Anwar El Ghazi’s miss-of-the-season contender.
The Toffees had previously incurred Ancelotti’s wrath following a poor 3-0 defeat at Wolves and have a history of struggling after the break against better teams.
Let’s add 3/2 for the Blades to outscore the Toffees in the second half to our Sheff Utd vs Everton betting tips, while Draw HT/Sheff Utd FT at 17/4 is a value option.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Coleman, Gomes, Davies, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi, Bernard.
Leicester 2-0 SHEFF UTD
EVERTON 1-1 Aston Villa – Theo Walcott
Head-to-head: Everton 0-2 Sheff Utd
