Given that Sheffield United failed to score at home to Southampton last week, we can see a home win to nil here at8/5 withLadbrokes. We dont see them taking anything from this trip to Merseyside though, given how strong Everton have been in front of their own fans of late. Goodison Park has seemed like a real fortress of late with the Toffees winning their last six league games at the ground, keeping five clean sheets in the process including against Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

A goalless draw with Crystal Palace on the opening day has been followed up with disappointing defeats against newly-promoted Aston Villa and Eddie Howes Bournemouth, showing that there are still weaknesses in Marco Silvas squad. Back in front of their own fans for this one, the Blues will expect to pick up all three points at 4/6 withCoral. However, problems continue to persist on the road for the Toffees.

Given that theyve lost their last two home games since that victory over the Eagles, they may feel more comfortable heading out on the road again here where you can back them for a win at 5/1 withBetVictor. The Blades have given a solid account of themselves so far, picking up five points from their opening five games thanks to a win over Crystal Palace and very handy draws away from home against Bournemouth and Chelsea.

Everton - Sheffield United

If we take everything I said, it points to the home win with over 2.5 goals scored. I looked at their recent performances and their styles of play, as well as other factors like tradition while I was crafting my selection. Both of these teams started this season okay. Both teams will have their chances to win but my opinion is that Everton gets all 3 points.

At home, they have taken some momentum from that end of season form into the new term with home victories over Watford and Wolves ensuring theyve now won 6 consecutive league games at Goodison Park. After finishing the 2018/2019 campaign so strongly, before bringing in some exciting new players in the summer like Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi, Everton fans were hopeful of a really positive campaign and a push for a top six finish this season.

Everton seem to struggle away from home even more so than most clubs, but at Goodison Park, they have a bit more of an edge to them and were expecting to see them bounce back in a big way against the Blades. If they can get off to a hot start then we can picture them controlling the pace of the game in the middle of the park, shutting Sheffield United down in the process. Its going to be frantic and even quite end to end at times, but in the end, the Toffees will take control.

Theyve got a composed and focused squad that, so far, has been able to register a string of impressive results and performances to go right along with it. If they can carry on with this current trajectory, then theres no reason to believe that they will be in any kind of realistic danger when it comes to the relegation battle. If anything, they could have top half ambitions of their own. Few couldve anticipated that Sheffield United would make quite such a confident start to life back in the big time.
