Everton face Championship outfit Preston in their second and final pre-season fixture, with the pair coming together at Goodison Park later this afternoon.
The Toffees have had just one pre-season outing, a nervy 3-3 draw at League One side Blackpool. The hosts raced into a 3-0 lead inside the first 11 minutes, before a header from Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave the visitors a lifeline.
Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson then scored from the spot before adding a stunning free-kick to secure a 3-3 draw.
The game provided boss Carlo Ancelotti with the perfect opportunity to get a look at his squad, with several youngsters lining out against the lower league opposition.
A similar situation could arise on Saturday, with Preston aiming to upset the odds against the Premier League club.
Alex Neil’s men have already returned to competitive action, easing past Mansfield Town 4-0 in the first round of the League Cup.
Tom Barkhuizen, Sean Maguire, Patrick Bauer and Josh Harrop were on the scoresheet as the club progressed to the next round of the competition.
The victory came after two pre-season games, a 3-1 win over Salford City and a 1-1 draw at Tranmere.
Preston also then travelled to Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United, where they twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with the Premier League side.
They now turn their attention to Goodison.
It’s currently 4/7 for an Everton win, with the visitors available at 10/3.
A draw can be backed at 3/1.
The hosts are 2/5 to score first, with their opponents currently 2/1. A goalless draw between the sides has been given odds of 14/1.
Selected scorelines include a 2-0 Everton victory at 15/2 and a 3-0 win at 11/1. And it’s currently 14/1 for Preston to come away with a narrow 1-0 win, with a 2-0 away victory available at 25/1.
The Championship club finished ninth in the league table last time out, and they also have a tough start to the new campaign with games against Swansea and recently relegated Norwich.
