Everton Sweating On Fitness Of Key Players Ahead Of Cardiff Clash
Cardiff City travels to Goodison Park following a tough start to the season. With just two wins in twelve, the Bluebirds need to start putting points on the board if they want to avoid the relegation dogfight. The home team, on the other hand, are sitting only 5 points behind a top 5 place; a win could see them jump three places in the table, depending on results elsewhere.
Everton are waiting on the fitness of Sigurdsson and Gomes; neither travelled with their international teams having picked up knocks and will likely miss this game. They will be happy to have leading scorer Richarlison back to full fitness after a below-par performance against Chelsea.
Cardiff will have almost a fully fit squad available. If they are to get anything from the game, they will need to be at their best. Although Everton have dropped points this season against teams they would expect to beat, I can’t see Cardiff posing too much threat.
Result Prediction: Everton Win
Score Prediction: 2-0 or over 1.5 match goals
