How Everton must line up when they face Huddersfield Town on Saturday

Everton will look to extend their unbeaten record on the road to three matches and boost their chances of ending the Premier League season in eighth position when they face Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

The Toffees lost six successive away games between December 30 and March 3 before they finally picked up some points as they beat a lowly Stoke City side 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium last month.

The Merseyside outfit followed that up with a 1-1 draw at another top flight struggler in Swansea City, before they beat Newcastle United 1-0 at Goodison Park on Monday night.

That win lifted them above Leicester City in the standings and into eighth, and that will likely be the highest placing they can achieve given they are eight points adrift of seventh place Burnley with just three matches remaining, and have a hugely inferior goal difference.

Sam Allardyce continues to come under pressure from the Goodison Park faithful both at matches and on social media, but if he continues to win matches then it will only strengthen his position and boost his chances of being in charge next season.

The 63-year-old stuck with the same XI that started against Swansea previously for the visit of the Magpies, although he swapped from a 4-2-3-1 system to a 4-3-3 formation with Wayne Rooney dropping deeper and Theo Walcott and Yannick Bolasie playing as proper wingers.

The former England boss may well be considering making some alterations for the trip to Yorkshire however, as he looks to assess his options for the 2018/19 campaign.
