Last Meeting

The two sides’ last game was at Goodison Park in late November, with a solitary goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson giving the Blues all three points. The home side had dominated that affair with 70.7% of the possession and a hefty advantage in shots, but were either wasteful with the last pass or else the few chances created. There were even some hairy moments late in the game with the visitors pushing for an equalizer but the Blues held firm.
