Premier League Preview for Cardiff City v Everton along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Cardiff City’s 3-2 win over Manchester City in week 2 showed why they belong in the Premier League. They combined an ability to frustrate a top side defensively as well as get the goals needed for a win.
Everton have been somewhat frustrating in their first two matches with a 2-2 and a 0-0 draw. They’ve been unable to really stamp their mark on either match and prove that they should be considered in the top of the league.
Cardiff will certainly be looking at this match as one that they can win, especially after defeating Manchester City. Everton should be looking for a win, but would certainly settle for a draw at this point of the season.
My prediction is a low scoring draw. At this point in the season it seems most teams are playing it safe and not wanting to give up too much. Everton has shifted its style of play to be quite defensive and try to control play which has not resulted in many goals. Cardiff have the ability to make things happen and could pull out a win, but if they overextend themselves too much could give up a few goals to an Everton team that has the ability to score.
Form: Cardiff City (L, W) Everton (D, D)
Prediction: Cardiff 1 – 1 Everton
