This Preview for Everton v Reading includes my Premier League Predictions and pre-match analysis for Match Week 28 of the EPL.
Reading will be desperate to get a result out of Saturday’s match, especially a win. Everton may not be in the same dire straits as Reading, but they will be just as eager to get a win and keep their hopes of a European place intact. This is certainly a match that Everton will be targeting for a win and should be able to get.
Reading will be without their typical starting forward, Pavel Pogrebnyak, who is serving his 3 match ban. Everton should have Marouane Fellaini and Victor Anichebe return from their recent injury concerns. A mainly full strength Everton side should have enough to get a win, although I’m sure Reading will make it uncomfortable for them. Everton will be able to focus primarily on their Premier League match with the next FA Cup game coming a week later.
I don’t think Reading will have enough to get past Everton, despite their recent dip in form in the EPL. Everton should be able to get all three points and keep the pressure on Arsenal. I’m predicting a win for Everton, but also with at least one Reading goal being scored.
Everton (D, W, D, L, L) 2 – 1 Reading (W, D, W, L, L)
