‘A big game’: Chris Sutton now predicts the outcome of Brentford vs Everton

Pundit Chris Sutton has now predicted the outcome of Everton v Brentford tomorrow afternoon.

The former centre-forward insists this is a ‘big game’ for the Toffees, though believes that Thomas Frank’s side will be too good for Everton to overcome.

Indeed, Sutton predicts a 2-0 win for the Bees, suggesting Brentford’s counter-attacking style will see Everton come undone.

Writing via BBC Sport, Sutton said: “This is a big game for Everton, and a really difficult one too.

Sean Dyche’s side did not lay a glove on Arsenal last weekend and they surely have to offer more of a threat here – but they will have to be very careful when they go forward against a Brentford side who are so good on the break.

It must be miserable being an Everton fan at the moment because even when they have created opportunities, like they did against Fulham and Wolves earlier this season, they haven’t taken them.

I want to say they will score this time, but I can’t see it. Instead, I think there is more misery in store.”

Everton must bring more to Brentford than they did against Arsenal

Sean Dyche could have scarcely had a worse start to the season and Brentford will no doubt be challenging opposition tomorrow, though their form in the early weeks of the campaign has been inconsistent.

Indeed, with three draws, one win and one defeat, Everton could get something out of this game and returning to Merseyside with a point wouldn’t be a bad result.

Dyche discussed his preferred formation of two upfront during yesterday’s press conference, though also seemed to suggest that it was too soon for DCL and £26m forward Beto to feature together in attack.

Chris Sutton may be correct in stating this is a ‘big game’ for Everton, but every game feels massive at the minute.
