Everton looked like a completely different side against West Ham - who were admittedly week opposition - and Sam Allardyce has a proven track record of having instant impact as a manager. Huddersfield meanwhile have hit a rough patch in their season and I’m expecting a home win here.

Everton Preview

Had they not been wearing their traditional blue kit with the Everton crest embroided, you would have been forgiven for thinking it was a completely different side playing at Goodison Park on Wednesday night, following an unrecognisable performance in their 4-0 win over West Ham. Wayne Rooney was instrumental in the victory, scoring twice in the first half to put Everton in a comfortable position, before a technical masterclass in how to strike a ball saw the 31-year-old complete his hat-trick with a superb effort from inside his own half. The evening started poorly for Ashley Williams as he gave away a penalty that was saved by Jordan Pickford, but the Welshman finished on a positive when he headed in Everton’s 4th. With Sam Allardyce now in charge, expect this to be a far more disciplined, organised side and, hopefully for the sake of goalkeeper Pickford, under less pressure throughout games. The team were targeting six points from six from these two home fixtures and, given the nature in which Arsenal defeated Huddersfield last time out, Everton are actually the favourites to pick up the win here. Allardyce is just what this team needs and is arguably the most prestigious club job of his managerial career to date, with the objective being simply to avoid relegation.

Everton Team News

Ramiro Funes Mori (knee), James McCarthy and Ross Barkley (both hamstring) are set to miss out here. Leighton Baines (calf) and Michael Keane (knee) are doubts, while Seamus Coleman (broken leg) and Yannick Bolasie (cruciate ligament) are also unavailable. Oumar Niasse is suspended.

Huddersfield Town Preview

Huddersfield were made to pay, and brutally so, for not taking advantage of their chances away to Arsenal on Wednesday evening, as David Wagner’s men suffered a 5-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium. Alexandre Lacazette scored the opening goal inside the first three minutes for the Gunners, but the Terriers responded with chances of their own, with Collin Quaner having a number of opportunities to pull them level. However, Arsenal soon responded with an assault on the Huddersfield goal, with Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil all scoring within five minutes of each other, giving Huddersfield yet another lesson in the ruthless nature of the Premier League. Giroud scored the Gunners’ fifth goal three minutes from time as Huddersfield were condemned to their heaviest defeat of the season so far. Wagner can at least take heart from the way his team were able to carve open opportunities against one of the top sides in the league, but the lack of conversion is a serious worry. It continued a recent trend in Huddersfield’s recent results, with Wagner’s men scoring just two goals in their previous five matches in the Premier League. Winning just two of their last 12, only their positive start to the season has prevented them dropping into the bottom three at this stage of the campaign and they now sit behind Everton in the table.

Huddersfield Town Team News

Rajiv van la Parra serves the first of a three-match suspension here. Philip Billing (ankle) and Jon Gorenc-Stankovic (cruciate ligament) are long-term absentees, while Michael Hefele (achilles) and Kasey Palmer (hamstring) are doubts.
