PREDICTION
Huddersfield are not quite over the line yet in terms of staving off the threat of relegation, but their 1-0 win over Watford in their last league outing has certainly given the club a real hope of staying out of the bottom three.

They can make all but sure of that if they get the better of Everton this weekend, who themselves are doing their very best to hunt down Burnley in the race for seventh and a return to the Europa League that it would offer the Toffees

Unfortunately for Sam Allardyce and his players, it looks like the gap between them and Sean Dyche’s men is going to be too big and they will have to make do with a top eight finish. Still, after the start they had that is not something that will offer up too many complaints.

Huddersfield have saved some of their best performances for the John Smith’s Stadium and the hope from David Wagner is that there is at least one more in their locker between now and the end of the season. This might not be the one, but at the same time they will be good value to at least hold Everton to a draw.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The only previous Premier League meeting between these two clubs saw Everton play host to Huddersfield back in December. It was however of a fixture of note as it was Sam Allardyce’s first full game in charge of the Merseyside outfit.

The one-time England manager’s stint at Goodison Park got off to the best possible start as goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin earned Everton a 2-0 win and more importantly some much needed points as Big Sam started the Toffees' move away from the drop zone.
