Premier League Preview for Everton v Hull City along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
I would say that both of these teams have had rather impressive starts to the season. Everton have really taken to Roberto Martinez and his tactics and it has paid dividends for them. They currently sit in seventh place with a 3-3-1 record and their first loss coming in week 7. They started the season with a strong defensive outing, but in their last three matches have allowed seven goals to give put them at nine goals allowed and ten scored.
Hull City are perhaps the biggest surprise of the season with many pundits tipping them for relegation. While this could still happen, they have started out the season by going 3-2-2 and sitting in eighth place. If they do want to stay up they will need to start doing a bit more scoring. They have scored six goals while allowing seven.
My prediction is for an Everton win. Hull’s ability to score goals will be truly tested against an Everton team that has suddenly begun to leak goals. Everton’s ability to score goals has certainly seen improvement with them scoring seven goals in their last three matches.
Betting Odds: Everton: 1.42-1.45; Draw: 4.33-4.63; Hull win: 7.95-9.50
