      Tip Reasoning

      Lincoln’s impressive start in League One is now a thing of the past, as the Imps have lost two on the bounce. Back in front of their home fans, they’ll be looking to bounce back, though getting the better of Premier League opposition will not be easy. The visitors are looking to build momentum ahead of their next top-tier assignment.

      They may have lost each of their last two, which will have undoubtedly displeased manager Danny Cowley, though if we scratch beneath the surface, we can see that Lincoln have been useful in League One this term. They’re just a point outside of the top six, they’re averaging two goals for and have surrendered an average of just 0.8, keeping three clean sheets in the process.

      The fact that Lincoln have conceded just two goals in five League One matches suggests that they’re not too shabby at the back. Much of the same can be said for Everton, who’ve conceded just two goals in three Premier League games this term.

      However, while the Toffees have looked useful at the back, they’ve found it very tough to make their presence felt going forward, despite having plenty of capable attacking individuals. Marco Silva’s men have scored just one goal in three games, while an early average of 1.09 expected goals for suggest that they’re also suffering from a lack of creativity.

      After a couple of poor results, Lincoln probably won’t change too much in terms of personnel, as they’ll be hoping to do a good job ahead of their next League One assignment. If this is to be the case, then it’s not tough to see the hosts frustrating an Everton side that has struggled going forward over the first few weeks of the season. After all, the Imps showed the resolve to beat Huddersfield, who at the time were in the top-flight, by a goal to nil when playing in this competition last season.

      Given the starts made by this pair, ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ stands out as the best option in the betting. Lincoln have conceded just two goals in five matches, while Everton, who’ve struggled to get going offensively, have conceded in just one of their three Premier League matches. Furthermore, the pair are averaging a combined 1.47 goals against and 2.19 expected goals against.

      Those looking to bag the ‘Correct Score’ can try a narrow 1-0 win for the visitors. Everton have done well to keep teams at bay in the Premier League, so they’re fancied to keep things tight against League One opposition. Silva’s men have struggled offensively, while Lincoln are a decent side at the back, but with top-flight quality in their forward-line, the Toffees can make the breakthrough.
