Huddersfield Town vs Everton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Thomas Ince scored one of the most important goals of his career two weeks ago, helping the Terriers see off Watford in their previous Premier League fixtures. The win, which came late in the stoppage time, moved Huddersfield Town six points clear off the drop zone with four games left to play. Can David Wagner and his troops make it back-to-back wins on Saturday when they are to play Everton at The John Smith’s Stadium?
It will be somewhat tougher task compared to the clash with the Hornets given that Everton have been pretty tough to break down lately. The Toffees conceded just once during the run of three games without a loss. This includes the goalless draw with Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby as well as the narrow 1-0 win over Newcastle United on Monday at Goodison.
Huddersfield Town vs Everton: Head-to-head
The Toffees had no troubles dispatching Huddersfield Town in early-December last year when they took a 2-0 victory at Goodison.
It was their first league clash since 1972/72 campaign when the Terriers last featured the top flight football.
Everton took a demolishing 5-1 victory in the meantime, as the two sides locked horns in the early stages of the League Cup back in 2010.
Huddersfield Town vs Everton: Prediction
We can hardly see a goal fest here because of the playing style both managers used in the last couple of fixtures. None of last six of Huddersfield’s league matches produced three or more goals. The Terriers actually scored only two along the way. Knowing that Sam Allardyce instilled the fighting spirit into his players who shipped just one in last three Premier League matches, we do see the hosts struggling for goals here.
Everton were not much better in the final third either of late, given they scored just twice in last three games. Since the head to head tie also saw a low-scoring contest, backing Under 2.5 goals indeed looks to be the best of the betting options, set at 1.50 odds.
In such circumstances, braver tipsters can even try with the goalless draw as the final outcome. The bookies will pay 7.00 for such scenario.
