‘Clear favourites’ – Chris Sutton predicts result of Everton clash v Nottingham Forest

Chris Sutton has predicted that Everton will earn a solitary point as they face Nottingham Forest in the Premier League on March 5th.

The BBC analyst anticipates a 1-1 scoreline, as the Toffees aim to recover their form after conceding six goals without scoring in their previous two matches.

Sutton suggests that Sean Dyche will strive for more stability to maintain Everton’s Premier League status, while also predicting a competitive encounter this weekend.

In his recent BBC Sport column, Sutton notes that Everton win could potentially drag another team in the relegation battle, which is presently a tight race.

“This is a big one – a win here would give Nottingham Forest some breathing space over the bottom three, but Everton would drag Steve Cooper’s side right back into trouble if they take the points,” he wrote.

“On form, it’s Forest who are clear favourites – they haven’t lost at home in the league since September and are quite courageous at the City Ground, while Everton have managed only one away win all season and are often toothless too.

“But, when I think about both sides and what’s at stake, I don’t think there will be much in it. This will be a real battle – it could get pretty jittery, and there won’t be many goals.”
