Everton v Middlesbrough
Saturday 5:30pm BST
Hard to ignore the Under 2.5 history here, albeit some time ago. We’re on at 1.80 withBet365.
Everton host Middlesbrough in the late game and they couldn’t be travelling any more sweetly. Koeman has the Toffees humming all over the park and with Lukaku back in form they would be feeling confident against almost all opposition. Middlesbrough have taken points from 3 of 4 and would feel let down that they took nothing last week against Crystal Palace.
It’s been 8 years since these 2 met in the League and Everton hold the advantage recently – P6, W3, D2 leaving Boro with their most recent win back in 2006.
These two teams invariably play tight games with 5 of the 6 meetings going Under 2.5 goals and 2 of the 6 matches finishing with Both Teams to Score.
Some old names have scored first in this one including Tim Cahill, Joleon Lescott, Yakubu and the world’s most prolific penalty-taker Andrew Johnson. Toffees on the sheet in the last 4 meetings….
