Jamie Carragher and Ian Wright Clash over Everton V Brentford Score Prediction

Jamie Carragher and Ian Wright sparred over their predictions for the upcoming Premier League clash between Everton and Brentford.

After Everton’s crucial 2-0 win over Liverpool on Wednesday, securing their Premier League safety, and Brentford’s dominant 5-1 victory against Luton, tensions rose as the two pundits disagreed on the outcome of the match scheduled for Saturday 27 April at Goodison Park.

Carragher, a former Liverpool star, shocked Wright with his prediction of a draw. “I actually thought he [Dyche] might rest players [vs Liverpool], but as an Everton manager against Liverpool going for the title, you’ve got to try and stop them,” Carragher explained. “I’m saying 1-1 [vs Brentford].”

Wright audibly expressed his disbelief at Carragher’s forecast, prompting Carragher to defend his choice. “Have you seen them? You were shocked that I said Everton v Brentford would be a draw?” he challenged Wright. Wright then confessed he expected a Brentford victory, saying, “Yeah I was, yeah, because I feel Brentford will beat them.”

Carragher added, “It’s one of those games, if they’re drawing at half-time they’re both happy aren’t they?” But Wright’s team were in agreement with him, as both Roy Keane and Jill Scott backed a 2-1 away win on the day. Keane commented, “It’s a huge game for Brentford. I think they’ll have too much for Everton.”
