Everton have another chance to bounce back from their recent 10-point deduction when they travel to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest.

The Premier League clash on Saturday (2 December) is the club’s second following the punishment for breaching the competition’s profit and sustainability rules.

The first was supposed to be the start of a fightback from the Toffees, but Manchester United destroyed those plans with a 3-0 win at Goodison Park last Sunday (26 November).


But it may have been the home stadium that was the problem, and not the opponents, with Everton boasting a much better record on the road this season.

The Toffees should be encouraged going into their upcoming away game because they have more victories, points, and goals this season away from home—despite playing one fewer game than at Goodison Park, coincidentally.

However, Everton’s shooting conversion rate (13%) and save ratio (63%) are higher away from home than they are at home (4% and 57%, respectively), according to data released by Sky Sports on December 2.


Against Steve Cooper’s team, star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be eager to raise the former total, and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will want to do the same with the latter.

It won’t be an easy chore, though, since Forest has turned the City Ground into a fortress recently. According to Sky Sports (2 December), Forest went eight games without losing in the Premier League there before to their 3-2 loss to Brighton on Saturday, November 25.
