Match preview

Can Everton claim a vital victory as they seek to climb outside the relegation zone?

Last weekend, despite leading twice, the Toffees only managed to draw 2-2 with Nottingham Forest.

Demarai Gray from the penalty spot and Abdoulaye Doucouré, with a header, on target at the City Ground, helping secure what is, on balance, a useful point.

Nevertheless, Sean Dyche’s team remain in the drop zone, with their next three fixtures after this against Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United.

This though will not be easy for the Blues either, with Brentford arriving in Merseyside seeking to boost their European aspirations.

On Monday night, the Bees beat West London rivals Fulham 3-2 at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Ethan Pinnock’s deflected shot broke the deadlock, before Ivan Toney’s penalty and Mathias Jensen cool finish secured the points.

This means Thomas Frank’s side are still enjoying the longest unbeaten run in the Premier League, 12 games, so are ninth, just seven points off fourth with two games in hand.

Brentford won 3-2 at Goodison last May, a result that seemingly consigned Everton to the drop.

Will this one also go the way of the away side?

Everton team news

Neal Maupay’s form has been so underwhelming that Sean Dyche elected to line-up without a striker at Nottingham Forest last Sunday.

So, assuming Dominic Calvert-Lewin isn’t fit, Demarai Gray could continue to be flanked by Dwight McNeil and Alex Iwobi.

Michael Keane has started over Conor Coady in both of the last two games, so will that continue here?

Likewise, Ben Godfrey got a rare start at left-back, chosen over Vitaliy Mykolenko.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Keane, Godfrey; Doucouré, Gana Gueye, Onana, Iwobi, McNeil; Gray.

Brentford team news

Ivan Toney scored his 16th of the season on Monday and, while he’s still available, will continue to lead the line.

The surprise selection against Fulham was Mikkel Damsgaard, handed just his second Premier League start in midfield.

This time, it would not be a surprise if either Vitaly Janelt or Josh Dasilva came into the side.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Nørgaard, Janelt, Jensen; Mbuemo, Wissa, Toney.
