Everton will welcome Luton Town to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon (15:00) in what could be billed as an early relegation six-pointer.

The Toffees appear to have recovered from their poor start to the new season and are seeking a third straight win in all competitions this weekend, while Luton picked up their first point of the campaign with a 1-1 draw with Wolves in their last league outing.

Everton vs Luton Prediction

Seamus Coleman, Andre Gomes and Dele Alli all remain in the treatment room for the hosts, while Vitalii Mykolenko will have a late fitness before the match.

Jack Harrison played his first game for the Toffees in the Carabao Cup tie against Aston Villa in midweek, as he makes a steady return from a hip injury, so he could feature this weekend for Sean Dyche’s side.

As for Luton, they will be without Albert Sambi Lokonga after he picked up a hamstring injury that could keep him out for a few months.

Ross Barkley could return from a hamstring injury to face his former side, but Dan Potts, Gabriel Osho and Jordan Clark are still absent for the Hatters.

Everton to win and over 2.5 goals @ 8/5

At the moment, it’s fair to say that you don’t associate goals with either Everton or Luton but I can see a few going in on Saturday at Goodison Park.

However, in four of their past five games, Sean Dyche’s side have been involved in games where over 2.5 goals has landed, and confidence will be high amongst the Everton players, as they are seeking their third consecutive win in all competitions.

I do think this match could go one of two ways – Everton can’t score at home, and Luton can’t score away, so it could be goalless draw. However, we all know how key momentum is in football, and the Toffees have plenty of it coming into this game.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score anytime @ 13/8

Calvert-Lewin came off the bench against Brentford to find the back of the net in a hugely important 3-1 win for the Toffees

The 26-year-old then backed that up with another effort against Villa in midweek, and the Everton striker looks a good contender for an anytime goal here.

He will cause the Luton defence plenty of problems and his confidence will be high after netting in his previous two.
