Everton are banking on a routine win over relegated Sheffield United to aid their European prospects.

Everton v Sheffield United
Published: Sunday, 16th May 2021 at 5:30 pm

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has just three Premier League fixtures left to steer his side into a European competition for next season and achieve the minimum expectation asked of him on Merseyside.


The Toffees have blown hot and cold this season but a recent spike in form has seen them return to contention for a Europa League spot – while the Europa Conference League is also a possible destination.

Sunday sees them host relegated Sheffield United in what is expected to be a one-sided affair at Goodison Park.

The Blades have been cut adrift at the foot of the table and were downed 2-0 by Crystal Palace in their last outing. It wouldn’t be a surprise if they failed to claim a single point more from their remaining three games.

Sunday’s clash is therefore Everton’s to lose but Ancelotti may be wary of the opposition here after his troops only narrowly beat United 1-0 back in December. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Everton v Sheffield United on TV and online.

Our prediction: Everton v Sheffield United

Everton’s win at Bramall Lane was a bit too uncomfortable for Ancelotti’s liking and the Italian will expect far better from his side this weekend.

Realistically Sheffield United have little chance of even scoring against the Toffees, especially with the likes of Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina playing so well of late at the back.

The eyes are always drawn to Everton’s exceptional forward line but defensively they have proved reliable recently. The Toffees should control this game from kick off and grind out the result Ancelotti needs.

Our prediction: Everton 2-0 Sheffield United (6/1 at bet365)
