Everton v Sheffield United Match Preview & Trends

Ancellotti needs Toffees to be ruthless in European pursuit

With Sheffield United having little more than pride to play for after their inevitable relegation was confirmed, Everton will be looking to exploit any potential lack in motivation displayed. The Toffees are still harboring ambitions of Europa League qualification and need maximum points from their remaining fixtures to give themselves a fighting chance of achieving that target.  

53% of Everton’s Premier League home games this season have seen both sides score before halftime whilst 66% of their points have been earned away. 64% of Everton’s conceded goals were conceded at home and they have won just one of their last 5 Premier League matches at Goodison Park. With Calvert-Lewin scoring freely once more, Carlo Ancellotti will know that his side can finish the campaign like they started it and be a threat to anyone they face. 

Sheff Utd have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 25 away games and there have been fewer than four cards in each of the last 6 games involving Paul Heckinbottam’s men. The Blades have conceded the first goal of the game in their last 8 away fixtures and have lost their last 8 away matches in a row. 

In fact, Sheff Utd have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and have conceded at least 1 goal in 100% of their away matches. 76% of their points have been earned at home and The Blades have conceded the opening goal in 77% of their matches. Sheffield Utd have lost 80% of their matches and been defeated in 88% of their away matches, including losing their last 7 fixtures away from Bramall Lane

Key trends

Everton have picked up an average of 1.12 Points Per Game in their 17 matches played at home

Sheffield United’s average Points Per Game in their 17 away games is 0.24.

Everton conceded at least 1 goal in 88% of their home matches.
