Last Sunday, Everton faced off against Nottingham Forest, and they were able to secure a point with a 2-2 draw. Everton had 42 percent of the possession and three shots on target. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is dealing with a thigh injury still and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. Neal Maupay was replaced last weekend, and it could be Demarai Gray that starts again here.

On Monday, Brentford faced off against Fulham and they were able to secure the 3-2 victory. Brentford had 36 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Ethan Pinnock scored in the 6th minute. Brentford is very healthy heading into this game with the only injury concern with the backup goalkeeper. They are expected to have a back three for this game which means Kristoffer Ajer could move into the starting lineup here. In this game it’s going to need to be the defense that steps up.
Shane’s Free Pick
Everton is coming off a game where they scored two goals, but overall this season the offense has been an issue, and it’s going to be something that lets them down in this game. Everton isn’t going to have a ton of scoring chances here. Look for Brentford’s defense to step up here, and they will find a way to score a goal or two. Look for a 1-0 or 2-0 type of game with Brentford securing the win.
