Our football match prediction:
Everton coach Ronald Koeman is under huge pressure ahead of Saturday’s football match against Bournemouth. The Toffees suffered a loss in each of their previous three league games, but it has to be noted that they faced a tough fixture list (Chelsea, Tottenham, Man Utd). Everton do not deserve to sit in the relegation zone in the Premier League standings and they are definitely capable of picking up all three points from the Bournemouth game. The Cherries desperately needed a win against Brighton on Matchday 5 and they managed to get one, with the team coming from behind to record their first win of the season. Eddie Howe’s men are tough to beat at home, but they are not regarded as good travelers and we predict that Everton are going to put an end to their three-game losing run in the national championship. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Wayne Rooney.
Highlighted Player (Sigurdsson):
Arguably one of Iceland’s most famous footballers ever, Gylfi Sigurdsson was born In Reykjavik on 9 September 1989, but he never played for an Icelandic club on senior level. Having shown a great deal of potential while playing for FH and Breidablik youth teams, the attacking midfielder was snatched by Reading in 2008 and he has since spent the majority of his career in England. Sigurdsson also went on to represent Hoffenheim and Tottenham Hotspur, but he played his best football during the two spells with Swansea City, scoring 25 goals in first 85 Premier League games for the Swans. Sigurdsson became famous for his dangerous free-kicks and killer passes in the final third, but he was never given a genuine opportunity to prove his worth while at Tottenham Hotspur. The highly rated footballer had a key role to play as Iceland secured their first ever appearance at a major tournament finals, scoring 6 goals in 10 Euro 2016 qualifiers to ensure he would remain in the history books for years to come.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever. Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469. The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history. Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
