Everton VS Reading match analysis

Everton whipped Scunthorpe 5-1 in the away tie in the 3rd Round whilst Reading scored a very narrow win over West Brom (1-0) at home at that stage. With the luck of the draw, Reading were drawn against Stevenage in the 4th Round and they beat the home side 2-1 whilst Everton faced Chelsea at home and drew 1-1. In the 2nd Leg at Stamford Bridge, they drew yet again at 1-1 but the Toffees went on to win make that historic win in the penalty shootout! No doubt the Toffees are firm favorites here at Goodison Park, what with exhilarating 2-0 win over Sunderland here last weekend. All the same, the Toffees have won 3 of their last 4 matches here, beating Tottenham 2-1, Sunderland 2-0 and Blackpool 5-3 and drew the other against West Ham (2-2). Reading comes to Goodison Park on the back of a scrappy 3-3 away draw against Crystal Palace. That showing is far from ideal as they were up against a relegation threatened side, worse still, it exposed their defensive weaknesses that the likes of Cahill or Saha will bound to capitalize and benefit. Frankly it hard to envisage Reading stopping the home side today, not when the Toffees are in such fiery form, having risen from close to relegation to being in the top half of the table! More importantly they have scored 11 goals in their last 4 matches (average 2.8) and the visitors’ porous defence will make scoring against them a breeze! Don’t look beyond an easy win against the visitors – bet on it!
