Under Roberto Martinez Everton have been very tough to beat, last time out against Manchester City they did come unstuck although Everton did take the lead through loan signing Lukaku and looked very dangerous on the counter attack at times. Martinez has Everton playing goofd football and everything is on the ground and a passing game. The emergence of Ross Barkey is not a great shock with Martinez in charge and Lukaku looks the real deal as the Chelsea loanee has scored four in three games and really has been exceptional since signing on deadline day. At home Everton are very solid and have only conceded in one of the three home games they have played.
One of the success stories of the Barclays Premier League so far this season has been Hull City, with Steve Bruce at the helm the Tigers are extremely difficult to beat and are unbeaten in their last five in all competitions. The problem though appears to be scoring goals and with top marksman and creative influence Robbie Brady struggling with an injury and unlikely to play on Saturday there will be questions about who will unlock this Everton defence. Danny Graham has struggled since moving to Hull and is yet to score in the league. But at the back Hull have been extremely difficult to breakdown when playing at home, away from the KC stadium though Hull have conceded two in each of their three away games can Steve Bruce's men improve on that?
Another game here where it's hard to get value. I'm going to Everton to score early here and lead at half time which is available at 6/5. In the last two home games Everton have netted in the first half and led at half time. With Lukaku, Barkley, Mirallas this Everton team has some serious players up front who are all in great form. Take Everton to lead at halftime. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
