Everton have the only option of winning the match of tonight, against QPR in the 16th stage of Premier League. Even though the two teams are four points apart, the bookmakers see Everton as the great favorite, with odds of 1.44 for the victory, while a success of the London team on Goodison Park can multiply eight times the sum bet. The last match between the two teams took place in January 2014 in the English League Cup, Everton winning with no problems with the score of 4-0.
Everton have lost in the last stage on the pitch of the champion, Manchester City with the score of 0-1. Roberto Martinez’s boys are barely on the 13th place in the ranking with 18 points and a victory might line them with the great rival, Liverpool, who had been humiliated by Manchester United (0-3). The weak shape of the Toffees, who have obtained only one point during the last three stakes, continued to show in Europa League, losing on Thursday on their own pitch against Krasnodar (0-2). The manager, Roberto Martinez, praised Harry Redknapp, about who he said that he is among the most experienced managers from the English championship. The Hispanic manager can’t count for this match on Stones, Atsu, Gibson (injured), but neither on Barry (suspended).
QPR have won three important points in the match against Burnley (2-0), due to the goals of Leroy Fer and Charlie Austin, the latter scoring eight times during this season. Even so, the team from London are currently sat on the 18th place in the ranking, risking relegation with only 14 points gathered, all on their own pitch. Harry Redknapp believes his team is in a good shape, but they know that these good home performances need to show up in away matches, this being a good moment for a good result. Redknapp will need to play on Goodison Park without the most important player of the team, Charlie Austin, who is suspended. Other notable absentees for QPR are Faurlin, Sandro and Taarabt, all being injured.

Our tip suggestions
Everton are one of the best teams of England, with a potential way over the place taken now in the ranking and the change can probably come to the team from Goodison Park. QPR seem an easy opponent for Roberto Martinez’s players, the team from London not managing to obtain a single point in the seven away matches of this season, having a goal average of 2-17. Everton, on the other hand, are undefeated in the last four home matches and players such as Barkley, Mirallas or Lukaku should seal the fate of this game with no problems.
