Welsh side Cardiff City would be hoping to bounce back from the thrashing they received at home to London club Watford at the weekend when they face a struggling Everton side under Marco Silva in front of their home fans in Cardiff.
Everton fans have not been pleased with the progression of the team under Marco Silva who started well having been appointed as the Toffees boss in the summer.
His team has generally struggled for consistency since they lost the Merseyside Derby in a strange fashion.
Divock Origi came off the bench to give Liverpool a 1-0 win in injury time courtesy a goalkeeping error from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The Toffees have won just three times away from home in the Premier League this season and they could make it a fourth win with the odds of 2.15 according to SportPesa.
Cardiff City were thrashed 5-1 at home by the Hornets at the weekend and manager Neil Warnock would be hoping for an instant response from his team against Merseyside club Everton.
SportPesa is offering a Cardiff City win at the odds of 2.55 while a stalemate is at 3.35.
Cardiff City are just one point above the relegation zone in their fight for survival.

Gylfi Sigurdsson wants to club to convince Kurt Zouma that his long-term future lies with the Blue half of Merseyside.
Zouma has been a stalwart in defense for an Everton side that are yet to concede a goal in the last four Premier League games at home.

The Blues will have to improve their away form in the Premier League if they want to achieve a top-four spot at the end of this season.
Chelsea have now lost four of their last five away games in the Premier League with just the 2-1 win over West London rivals Fulham to show for their troubles within that period.

Chelsea dominated the first half with Star player Eden Hazard hitting the post in the first ten minutes.
The Blues wasted several opportunities in the first half and that came back to haunt them against a rejuvenated Everton side in the second half.
