Chris Sutton predicts Everton clash against Hull, states what is terrible
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton has predicted Everton to beat Hull City 3-1 in their Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon at Goodison Park.
Former Celtic striker Sutton lambasted the Tigers “terrible” away form as they aim to move out of the bottom three with a win.
Hull have won only one game on the road during this campaign and that was away at Swansea in August.
Their hopes of securing three points on the road will be made even tougher given the fact that they face a team that has lost only once at Goodison this term.
Ahead of the match, former Premier League forward Sutton delivered his verdict on the match and Toffees striker Romelu Lukaku.

“Hull have been terrible away from home and will be hoping that the Romelu Lukaku situation derails Everton,” Sutton told the Daily Mail. “Despite the events of this week, I expect Ronald Koeman’s side to get home and dry”.
Belgium international Lukaku is the club’s top goalscorer this season with 19 goals and he will be hoping to add to that tally on Saturday.
Three points for the away team could see them leapfrog sixth-placed Manchester United in the table, but the Old Trafford club have a number of games in hand on their rivals.
Jose Mourinho’s side will travel to the north east on Sunday where they will take on managerless Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.
Aitor Karanka was sacked as Boro manager earlier on in the week after his team had fallen into the relegation zone after a string of poor results.
