Roberto Martinez will be confident of clinching a third home win of the season when QPR come to town tonight.
The Goodison Park faithful should see their side clinch a much-needed victory against a QPR side who are struggling in the relegation zone.
Queens Park Rangers are four points above the foot of the table and won’t exactly be in high spirits when they make the journey to Merseyside, having lost all of their seven away games this season so far.
Everton haven’t been in top form at home however, Goodison Park not being the fortress that it was for much of last season. The Toffee’s seven home games have resulted in just two victories, those coming against West ham and Aston Villa and as such we’re less than excited by the 40/85 up for grabs at Boylesports for a home win on this occasion.
Considering that QPR have managed a mere two away goals this season to date, we fancy Everton to win to nil, such an outcome available at 7/5 with the same bookmaker. Rangers will be pretty toothless in attack, Bobby Zamora looking set to be the sole striker for a match which Harry Redknapp will likely opt to play defensively.
QPR have failed to score in all but two of their away games and this record looks likely to remain intact this evening. Indeed, a draw would be an acceptable outcome for the west London side, such a result up for grabs at 15/4 with Bet365.
Romelu Lukaku has been banging in the goals of late with three score in his last five outings. As such, we’re backing the Belgian to get his name on the scoresheet this evening at odds of 13/12 with 888sport. QPR will have little answer to his threat and look set to return home without even a point for their troubles.
