Our football match prediction:
Goodison Park will host Saturday’s football match between Everton and Stoke City. The Toffees will be without top scorer Romelu Lukaku in the 2017/2018 Premier League season, but it has to be noted that the club chiefs signed the likes of Martina, Keane, Klaasen, Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney in the summer transfer window. The former Manchester United superstar is expected to play an important role in Ronald Koeman’s role this term and all eyes will be on him when Everton take on Stoke City in their opener. The Potters are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but they often struggle on the travels and that is probably the main reason why we predict the visitors will return empty-handed from the trip to Liverpoool. Austria international Marko Arnautovic, who joined West Ham United earlier this summer, will be sorely missed in the Saturday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Rooney):
Over the years Wayne Rooney has established himself as one of the best English players. “Wazza” was born on 24 October, 1985 and he has played for only two clubs in his senior career. He began his football career at Everton and he scored 15 goals in 67 appearances for the Goodison Park outfit. In 2004 Rooney signed a £25-million-worth deal with Manchester United and he has been playing for the Red Devils ever since. The England attacker won the Champions League trophy with Man Utd in 2008, with the Old Trafford outfit defeating Chelsea on penalties in the title game. The Manchester United attacker has won five Premier League trophies with the English giants (2006/2007, 2007/2008, 2008/2009, 2010/2011, 2012/2013), while lifting FA Cup title in the 2015/2016 season. Nonetheless, Rooney, has yet to win a trophy with England national team. The 30-year-old ace failed to impress at the Euro 2016 final as he scored no more than one goal (penalty) at the showpiece tournament in France.
