Everton vs Salford Prediction & Betting tips
The season opener for Everton FC couldn’t have gone better. On the first day of the Premier League 2020/21, the Toffees won a narrow away win at Tottenham. During the week, Everton continues in the EFL Cup, the English league cup. After the exhausting appearance in the English House of Lords, the second guard can be expected in the insignificant cup game.
Everton meets a fourth division club with Salford City and is the clear favorite according to odds – even with a potential B-team, mind you. The Toffees shouldn’t have too much trouble against the guest from League Two but also with the second guard. After all, the squad width at Everton is quite impressive.
On Wednesday evening there is hardly anything to suggest that Salford City will master the difficult cup hurdle in Liverpool. The “Ammies” are only part of the fourth division average and have already been shown in the EFL Trophy, a cup competition between clubs in the lowest leagues of the EFL. The Manchester United U21s gave the “Ammies” six goals.
So it is quite possible that the Everton Second Guard will also deliver a shooting festival against Salford. It is therefore worthwhile to play the Everton vs. Salford to take a look at the gate market, where attractive odds are offered for an offensive spectacle.
Everton wants to regain its old strength under Carlo Ancelotti. Last season, the first good beginnings could be seen under the Italian. The summer investments, including a James Rodriguez from Real Madrid, are now set to take off. The Toffees celebrated a successful start to the season in the Premier League last weekend.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team prevailed in an exhausting match against Tottenham and thus scored the first three points of the 2020/21 PL season. If you consider the importance of the EFL Cup to the PL clubs, Ancelotti will hardly rely on his top performers in the squad on Wednesday evening. After all, there has only been two days of regeneration time since the PL match.
If you take a look at the Toffees squad, the cup hurdle against the fourth division should still be manageable. Everton has a squad width that is second to none. In addition to reservists, youngsters from the second team could also play in the insignificant cup game.
There is always enough quality. It would therefore not be surprising if the Toffees deliver an offensive spectacle against Salford City. It is not yet clear which starting eleven Carlo Ancelotti will send onto the pitch in the EFL Cup. In view of the fact that the second game day in the Premier League is already scheduled for the weekend, the Italian will want to avoid the double burden.
The “Ammies” have hardly anything to lose on Tuesday evening. The fourth division from Salford is the big underdog in Liverpool and will have to arm themselves against the strong offensive of the Toffees. If things go according to the previous ideas from the current competitive season, there is hardly anything to be said for a cup surprise from Salford City.
In League Two, the fourth English division, there was a 2-2 home draw against Exeter City last weekend. After the poor performance in the EFL Trophy, the “Ammies” ‘point win was surprising – even if the best bookmakers slightly favored Salford. Just a few days before the league game, Salford City drew 6-0 against Manchester United U21s.
The debacle against the Manchester United reserves could not be glossed over for coach Graham Alexander. In some positions there was a lot of rotation, but there were still numerous regular workers at the start. In the EFL Cup Salford City will play in contrast to Everton with the best cast. The double burden should therefore be felt.
Last season there was eleventh place for Salford City in League Two. Surprisingly, Alexander’s team presented itself better abroad than at home. Salford City was the second strongest away team in the fourth English division.
At the cup game between Everton vs. Salford will only be able to justify a forecast for the guests with a good dose of optimism. It is a classic David versus Goliath constellation.
