20:00, Jan 24 2021
FA Cup Round 1/16 24/01/21 Goodison Park (Liverpool) 20:00GMT

Goodison Park is the venue for this FA Cup round 1/16 matchup between Everton and Sheffield Wednesday. It is always interesting to have matches where Premier League teams play lower division teams, we will go through a full prediction for this match on this page.

Everton

The Toffees are a different team under Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti. They are fighting for a place in the top five of the Premier League and have a chance to go further in the FA Cup as they host Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday. 

Although they needed to go to extra time to beat Rotherham in the last round, Ancelotti will want his players to be more decisive early in the match this time around.

Everton have scored 10 goals in their last 7 matches including the FA cup match. They have lost 2 of their last 3 home games. They have also conceded in 5 of their last 6 matches.

Sheffield Wednesday

The Owlsated Exeter City in the last round but they might have their attention more on the Championship league as they are 2nd from the bottom of the table and in danger of relegation.

They are unbeaten in their last 5 matches including the FA Cup, scoring 7 goals and conceding 2 in the process. Looking at Sheffield’s away form, they lost 6 of their last 8 away matches.

Verdict

When we look at both team’s latest results we can see that their last 5 matches have seen under 3.5 goals. We think Sheffield Wednesday will play a very defensive game and rely on counterattacks thus restricting the goal chances for their opposition.
