Lyon vs Everton Preview

Lyon vs Everton

Competition – UEFA Europa League

Stadium – Stade des Lumières

Date: 2nd November 2017

Kick-off time – 18:00 GMT

Everton failed to impress over the weekend as they were toothless in a 2-0 loss to Leicester City who had named a new manager a few days before that clash.

The Toffees will have to face a stronger Lyon side in this game and it is hard to see them coming away with all three points.

Lyon are one of the most exciting French sides to watch right now.

They are winning games with high margins as their game plan seem to be outscoring opponents.

Lyon have won their last four matches and are unbeaten in their last six.

There has been over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five matches and they have scored at least 3 in 3 of their last 5.

When they play at home they are almost unstoppable and having scored two goals at Goodison Park and secured a win, they will  be playing this game with so much confidence.

Everton made some of the best signings over the summer and many expect them to turn things around at some point in the season – perhaps through the help of a new manager but that turnaround doesn’t look like it will be starting in this game based on their recent performances.

The Toffees are yet to keep a clean sheet in this competition as they have conceded two goals against Lyon and Appolon and three against Atalanta.

David Unsworth does not look ready for the permanent post at the helm as he has lost his two games in charge.

This game could be his last before a permanent manager is named and the players will do well to get a win here and give him more time.

Their last match is the only previous meeting between these two sides and Lyon won that game 1:2 at Goodison Park.
