Everton will clash heads with Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium this Saturday afternoon as they look to earn a good result on their travels in the Premier League. The Toffees suffered a 1-0 loss against Arsenal recently, so they would be eager to put in a much-improved showing versus the Bees this weekend.
Sean Dyche will opt for a 4-4-1-1 formation and could keep changes to a minimum for this clash. Hence, we can once again expect to see Beto lead the line for the Merseyside club up top.
4-4-1-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Brentford
Jordan Pickford will function in goal for Everton after conceding one goal in his last league outing. James Tarkowski will resume his defensive partnership with Jarrad Branthwaite at the heart of Dyche’s defence as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Ashley Young will fill in as the right-back while Vitaliy Mykolenko looks to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them would have to perform their defensive duties well if Everton want to secure a clean sheet this weekend.
Nathan Patterson will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Amadou Onana will anchor the midfield along with Idrissa Gueye as they try to win the 50-50 duels at the centre of the park.
Arnaut Danjuma will try to use his pace well out on the left flank while Dwight McNeil looks to impress as the right-winger.
Abdoulaye Doucoure will once again get the freedom to operate in the number ten position. He has to find a way to link up play well in the opponent’s half.
James Garner will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if required.
Beto will spearhead Dyche’s attack on his own up top. The Portuguese talent failed to score against Arsenal and would be hungry to do so when he laces up to face off against the Brentford defenders this weekend.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if needed.
