Everton are set to face Brentford at Goodison Park on Sunday evening, as they look to take the three points on their home turf. The fear of relegation was looming large over the Toffees but they conquered it having successively won over Chelsea and Leicester City.

They head into the match remaining grounded at 0-0 with Watford in their last Premier League fixture. A win over Brentford would make sure that they do not find themselves hovering above the dreaded relegation zone.

Fabian Delph will reportedly miss out on Sunday’s home game due to a muscle injury, but Ben Godfrey could return.

Frank Lampard will probably opt for the 5-4-1 formation similar to the last game as he aims to stop Brentford in their tracks.

Everton 5-4-1 Predicted Lineup Vs Brentford


Jordan Pickford is expected to start in goal for the upcoming home encounter. The English shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance to secure a clean sheet.

Michael Keane has been a consistent performer for Everton in defence, and Ben Godfrey could return to the starting XI. Holgate could feature at the left centre-back and the trio would likely form the centre half partnership at the backline.

Full-backs Seamus Coleman and Vitaliy Mykolenko will continue to operate down the right and left-hand sides, respectively.


Allan and Doucoure would be playing in the holding position over the central midfield, with the latter tasked with shielding the backline with a more defensive role.

Gray and Gordon might take up the wide positions, playing down the left and right-midfield, respectively. The duo would be determined to engineer some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the front-men.


The Toffees’ attack should be spearheaded by Richarlison as he could fancy his chances of finding the back of the net and creating trouble for the Brentford backline.
