Everton have been terrible over the past month and are coming off two consecutive losses against weaker sides in the Premier League. They will now have a chance to gain some confidence, as they will host League Two side Lincoln on Saturday for the FA Cup. Lincoln are the best team in their conference but the gap in quality is massive.

Everton will be furious about the outcome of their home match against Leicester, where they fell by 1-0. It was a really balanced first half where neither team found the net. Everton ended up creating 17 scoring chances in the match with just two shots on target. Their opponents scored the winning goal at the hour mark to force Everton to their fourth loss in their last five. Everton are sliding in the Premier League standings and have not won any of their last four home matches (0-2-2). Lincoln are enjoying a really strong season in the League Two, as they are still sitting at the top of the league table with 51 points, four ahead of MK Dons. In their last match they were on track for another win but conceded a late goal that held them to a 1-1 draw. They have been in stunning form over the past couple of months, losing just once in 13 matches in all competitions (7-1-5). They have not been very stable on the road though, winning just two of their last six matches in all competitions (2-2-2).

Everton have been really struggling with consistency over the past month or so, and a match against a much weaker side is a great chance for them to get a morale boost. Lincoln are on track to capture the title and might not chase going deep in this competition. I will take the Over 3.25 goals here, as Lincoln might sneak one past Everton’s shaky defense.
