Efforts to remedy the domestic surprising hesitation to Bournemouth last week and the Eagles attempt to record a fourth league win in a row, which is visiting the whole thing unheard of since April 2015 – roughly somehow would describe the main attractions of Friday’s audition Premier League.
League unbeaten home came to an end last weekend, manager Ronald Koeman of this is a big deal does: “Every day, every victory and defeat is that you learn more and more about your players. Of course we want to last match to react positively, but one defeat in six matches does not at all a bad entry into the season. if you win by moving to the second position of the table, with which never really counted. ”
The camp hosts prevailing in recent weeks also very good mood. Make it not, when Alan Pardew wards have won the last three Premier League duels. First, players Crystal Palace consult with the newcomer from Middlesbrough, then on its own soil they vandalized Stoke last week and then sensationally risen from the dead at the Stadium of Light, which already were losing 2: 0, but the result turned.
From the world of statistics can be easily seen that the visiting team at Goodison traditionally thrive. There had been unbeaten for 11 years, the last time this happened in April 2005. Overall, however, Everton at his opponent can not – if we look at the last 6 fights in the framework of mutual Premier League (on any soil), the Toffees have won only once and only once. But if the crowd around Phil Jagielka still succeed, equal to that of the highest profit club in the league after seven games – a total of 16 points is the domestic unit had collected more in season 04/05.
In the home camp infirmary remains pair Leighton Baines and James McCarthy, while Romelu Lukaku, despite the problems with the toe should not miss in the opening eleven.
Guests will lack long-term sick men as Remy and Souarého, there will not even stopper Dann. Conversely, the Wilfried Zaha after a week-long absence caused by muscle trouble should return to the starting lineup of his unit.
