Everton are turning into quite a good side and I have been really impressed by the way they have spent in the transfers market. This side is full of talent and the addition of Ashley Williams from Swansea and Bollasie from Crystal Palace will make this a great squad to back up Belgian superstar Romulu Lukaku. This weekend they will they will play host to a Stoke City team that will look to get a win as well.
Everton started their season with an impressive draw with Tottenham and they followed that up with a win away from home at West Brom. Both performances were impressive and I think the side will be feeling pretty confident going into this weekend match against Stoke. I think this side will do well this season and a spot in Europe is very likely so anything less than a win here will be a disappointment.
Stoke on the other hand have looked a little disappointing so far and I expecting them to lose here since their form is not great at the moment and Everton are looking like a great side this season. That being said, I don’t think they will get smashed but it won’t be likely that they leave here with anything but a loss.
I think that the best option for this game is betting on the number of goals scored. We are getting a good price on the over 2.5 goals and both teams have tons of scoring talent. Along with that, neither side a super strong at the back so a 3-1 or 2-1 win for Everton is what I am going to predict.
