Everton vs Huddersfield| Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Everton fans will be hoping for a more entertaining season than their 2017/18 campaign. The Toffees finished 8th in the Premier League, which is not bad but they were hoping for much more having backed Ronald Koeman in the transfer market. Things did not work out for the Dutchman and Everton saw out the season under Sam Allardyce before appointing Marco Silva. Huddersfield Town enjoyed a great return to top-flight football last season and survived in the Premier League against all the odds. The Terriers were one of the early season favourites to suffer relegation but they ended the campaign in 16th place, 4 points clear of the drop zone. David Wagner did a great job and will be hoping for more of the same.
Everton have spent heavily in the summer transfer window, bringing in players including Richarlison, Terry Mina, Kurt Zouma, Lucas Digne and Andre Gomes. The manager will be under pressure to deliver with his new players and Huddersfield at home will be seen as a must win match. Only maximum points will do for Everton against a team expected to finish in the bottom half. Huddersfield know they will come into this match as the underdogs but that did not prevent them from getting good results last season. Goodison Park is never an easy place to go for travelling teams. Wagner will know if his team can pick up a point from this game, it would be another step in the right direction for his team.
Everton have made an inconsistent start to the new Premier League season. The Toffees started with a 2-2 draw at newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers, which was a decent result in the end considering they have a man sent off. The Toffees defeated Southampton 2-1 at home but were then held 2-2 at Bournemouth, having had another man sent off and taken a 2-0 lead.
Huddersfield find themselves at the wrong end of the table ahead of this game. They started the season with a couple of tough fixtures and fell to a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Chelsea on the opening day. Things did not get any easier as Huddersfield were carved open at Manchester City, losing 6-1. Last weekend, Huddersfield were expected to pick up their first win but they were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Cardiff City.
Everton vs Huddersfield | Head-to-Head
Everton and Huddersfield have met 59 times in their history, with Everton coming out on top having won 26 games. Huddersfield have won 21 times and there have been 14 draws. Everton won both matches 2-0 last season.
Odds and Predictions
Given Everton’s unbeaten start to the season in the Premier League, the fact they are playing at home and Huddersfield’s poor form, it is little surprise to see the hosts start this match as the favourites. Everton are just 1.50 to win the match, with Huddersfield out at 7.00. The draw is also on offer at 4.00. Despite making a decent start to the 2018/19 Premier League season, Everton are yet to keep a clean sheet. It remains to be seen if some of the new defensive signings will start this match but there is work to do at the back for the Toffees. Everton to win and both teams to score is 3.75. Richarlison will miss this game due to suspension so the goals will have to come for elsewhere for Everton. Theo Walcott has started the season promisingly and already has two goals to his name. You can back Walcott to score at any time at 2.80.
Everton vs Huddersfield | Top Betting Tip: Everton (3-1)
Everton have looked good in attack this season and will be looking forward to playing against a Huddersfield team who have conceded 9 goals this season, despite keeping a clean sheet against Cardiff. Expect Everton to win but without a clean sheet.
