Saturday 15th March
Premier League Match Day 29


Everton's last 5 domestic results:

Tottenham 1-0 Everton
Everton 3-1 Swansea - FA Cup (Traore, Naismith, Baines Pen)
Chelsea 1-0 Everton
Everton 1-0 West Ham (Lukaku)
Arsenal 4-1 Everton - FA Cup (Lukaku)

Everton

Everton crashed out of the FA Cup last weekend as they were defeated 4-1 by Arsenal in a score which flattered the the home side. Romelu Lukaku continued his return with 2 goals in 2 whilst Everton conceded their 7th penalty of the season. Everton have won each of their last 4 matches in the league and haven't had a draw at Goodison Park for 7 matches.


Everton own the 2nd worst record against bottom half teams this season despite just the one defeat although Everton have taken 6 points from the current 10th place team in West Ham and only Chelsea have played fewer matches against bottom half sides. Interestingly only 1 of the 6 draw came at home against West Brom earlier in the season, the other 5 were away to Cardiff, Crystal Palace, Norwich, Stoke, and West Brom

Possible Line-ups


Cardiff

Cardiff ended a run of 4 defeats in a row at the weekend without scoring a goal in any of them as they beat Fulham 3-1 at home in what was Ole-Gunnar Solksjaer's second win as Cardiff manager in 9 Premier League matches. Cardiff going to this away game having lost each of their last 7 on the road which is the worst current run in the league (Norwich are next with 4). They've also failed to score on their last 3 trips which came at Tottenham, Swansea and Manchester United.


David Marshall has made more saves than any other keeper in the league this season having made 22 more saves than the next goalkeeper in Sunderland's Vito Mannone. Of the goalkeepers to play in 20 more matches, Marshall is the only goalkeeper who has averaged a save less than every 30 minutes. However, the goalkeeper has conceded more goals than any other this season (49) which goes to show how much worse off Cardiff would be without him.

Stats and Injuries


Long Term injuries Arouna Kone, Darron Gibson and Bryan Oviedo along with loanee Lacina Traore will all miss out this game whilst Phil Jagielka and Antolin Alcaraz are set to return. Steven Pienaar also picked up a knock in his last outing. Cardiff will be without Mark Hudson who has a hamstring injury whilst Andrew Taylor has a knock.

Naturally, one of the worse teams in the division comes to us with a little bit of confidence after ours has just taken a hammering.

Should have been going to this but got a bloody photography dark room workshop booked :(
Think we will win 2-1 though, I would say 3-1 but it seems we can't finish off possession so ill just stick with the 2. Need a good performance and get back to concentrating on the league!

I have to return some videotapes.

I'm going and I think my seat is right next to the away section. Ooooh I can smell the cheese on toast breath now.

Think we will be looking to hammer these 3/4-0

I think Martinez will have them up for this, its basically a fight for 5th, that what the season has become now, we should beat these and do it comfortably.

3-0

crowd will be tense for this one

first mistake is definitely getting a groan from the Gwladys I reckon

if Cardiff score first we can expect out players to get all kinds of abuse

plus it's "only" Cardiff, so most will expect us to have won just by turning up

I'm shocked that they have beaten us more than we've beaten them in the past.

I think its going to be a very interesting weekend, this set of fixtures could be crucial to how the season pans out. Utd play the shit, Spurs have Arsenal ,Newcastle are away to Fulham and Southampton are at home to Norwhich.

A win and results go our way means 5th place is very much on, a draw and results go against us and we get dragged into a battle for 6/7/8th with teams closing in and our momentum possibly stalling.

I expect a nervy and difficult first half but we should have enough quality to see this through by a few goals.
