            Everton vs Brentford: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

            Everton host Brentford in the Premier League, in what will be a significant game at the bottom of the table in the fight for survival.

            Date: 27/04/24

            Kick-off time: 17:30

            Venue: Goodison Park

            Both teams have endured frustrating campaigns, none more so than Everton who have had six points deducted throughout the season. This has left them in 16th, but victory over fellow relegation rivals Nottingham Forest has given them some breathing room. With 30 points, they are five points clear of safety, and they have a game in hand. A win would make their position even more comfortable, but a defeat could see them plunged back into trouble should results not go their way.

            Brentford have also been battling relegation throughout the year, but picking up eight points in their last four games has allowed them to create some much-needed separation. They are now five points clear of this weekend’s opponents and 10 above the bottom three. Three points would leave them in a significantly strong place to avoid the drop. A loss may have them nervously looking over their shoulders with an intense end of the season to come.

            The Toffees have just two wins in 16 and have recorded five overall at home all season. The Bees have turned it around of late, and have scored 10 goals in their last four. They have been boosted by the recent return of Bryan Mbeumo from injury, who is back up top alongside Ivan Toney. They have combined for 12 goals so far in limited appearances. Yoanne Wissa has also enjoyed a good campaign, topping the charts with 12 goals. The hosts have struggled to find a consistent goalscorer this season, with midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure leading the way with six. Striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored just five in a struggling season.

            Since 2022, these two teams have met five times in all competitions, four in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup. Everton were resounding 4-1 winners in the FA Cup, and continued their good record against the Bees with two league wins to their opponents’ one. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended 3-1 in the Toffees’ favour, as Doucoure gave them a very early lead. This was cancelled out just before the half-hour mark by Mathias Jensen. James Tarkowski restored the Everton lead before Calvert-Lewin added a third for insurance.

            Seamus Coleman may return after a brief absence with a groin injury. Beto suffered a bad head injury which required him to be stretchered off last weekend. Aside from this, Sean Dyche should have no new injury concerns to contend with.

            Brentford

            Aaron Hickey, Ben Mee and Rico Henry are out for the rest of the season. Ivan Toney has missed the last couple of games, but the hope is that he returns this week.

            Form Guide

            Everton

            In their last five games, Everton have won two, lost two and drawn one. Relegation remains a possibility for the Toffees due to this difficult stretch they have endured, though they are now in a much more comfortable position. It began with a crushing 2-1 loss away at Bournemouth in which they were defeated late on. Dominic Solanke scored midway through the second half to give the Cherries the lead, before striker Beto had thought he had salvaged a point with an equaliser in the 87th minute, However, in devastating fashion, they were condemned to defeat as Seamus Coleman inadvertently converted into his own net.

            They responded in the next game with a late goal of their own to pick up a big 1-1 draw at St James’ Park against Newcastle. Alexander Isak gave the hosts an early first-half lead, and this is how it remained for the majority of the game. But late on, in the 88th minute, Everton were awarded a penalty. This was converted by Dominic Calvert-Lewin to rescue a point. They finally picked up a win against fellow relegation battlers Burnley. It was a narrow 1-0 win, with Calvert-Lewin netting the winning goal in first-half stoppage time. Their task of holding on was made much easier in the second half when Dara O’Shea was sent off, though they did give up 63% possession to their visitors.

            A 6-0 thrashing at Chelsea followed, in what was perhaps Everton’s worst loss of the season. Cole Palmer scored four goals, including a perfect hat-trick in 16 first-half minutes. Nicolas Jackson and youngster Alfie Gilchrist completed the rout for the Blues. Their most recent game was a relegation six-pointer with Nottingham Forest. They got back to winning ways with a huge 2-0 victory. Idrissa Gueye and Dwight McNeil were the scorers.

            Brentford

            In their last five games, Brentford have won two and drawn three. The Bees are unbeaten in this stretch, as they steer clear of the bottom three. A dramatic 1-1 draw against Man United at home should have resulted in three points. They attempted a whopping 31 shots, though only five of them were on target. It was United who thought they had snatched victory in the sixth minute of stoppage time through Mason Mount, but Brentford responded almost immediately with Ajer grabbing the leveller to share the points.

            The search for a win continued at home but they were held to a goalless draw by Brighton. The visitors dominated, but neither side could find the breakthrough. They then travelled to face Aston Villa, which resulted in a thrilling 3-3 draw. Ollie Watkins put Villa ahead against his former team, before Morgan Rogers doubled their advantage shortly after the restart. The Bees then scored three goals in nine minutes to turn the game on its head. They could not hold on though, as Watkins netted his second of the afternoon. Their first win came against bottom side Sheffield United, in which they won 2-0 at home. It was a fairly even game, but Brentford were the only side able to find the back of the net. They went ahead midway through the second half after Oliver Luke Arblaster converted into his own net. It remained this way until stoppage time when Frank Onyeka added an insurance goal.

            Last time out they faced another relegation-threatened side in Luton. They were convincing winners, thrashing them 5-1. Yoanne Wissa scored a first-half brace to give them a commanding lead, before Ethan Pinnock, Keane Lewis-Potter and Kevin Schade added further strikes. Luke Berry scored a late consolation.
