Carragher thinks Leeds and Forest should be ‘worried’ as ‘outstanding’ Everton tipped to survive
Jamie Carragher believes that Everton can survive on the back of their impressive performance against Leicester on Monday night.
The Toffees played out a 2-2 draw with Dean Smith’s side and they looked the more likely side to win the game late on.
Jordan Pickford kept Everton in the game by saving James Maddison’s penalty on the stroke of half time and Everton improved after the break.
In total, Everton had 23 shots on the night, with eight of those attempts being on target. Had it not been for Daniel Iversen in goal for Leicester, Sean Dyche’s side could’ve claimed all three points.
The result leaves Everton in the bottom three, but Carragher thinks that the performance could spur them on to survival.
“It feels like a better point for Everton. They were by far the better team,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“I actually think Everton’s performance will worry Leeds and Nottingham Forest. If Everton can continue performing like that, they will get out of trouble.”
Everton only have four games to save themselves, but if they show a similar spirit in their final matches they could beat the drop.
Carragher thinks that both Leeds and Forest will now be looking over their shoulder with Everton ready to pounce.
“I think if you were watching that as a Forest or Leeds player or supporter you’d be worried.
“The big thing for Everton is they’ve got two more away games out of the next three and they’ve won one away game all season. That’s a huge problem.
“The one home game is against Man City. I’ve never felt Everton would go down at any stage really. I just look at the form that Leeds are in.”
Everton’s remaining fixtures are against Brighton, Manchester City, Wolves and Bournemouth.
Following Leeds’s 4-1 loss against Bournemouth, they are many people’s pick to go down this season.
Javi Gracia’s side are without a win in their last five matches and there have been rumours that Leeds could look to sack him with four games to go.
Sam Allardyce has even been linked with the job as the board members at Elland Road look like they are hitting the panic button.
Leeds have the worst defensive record in the league, having conceded 67 goals so far.
Their remaining fixtures are against Man City, Newcastle, West Ham and Tottenham which looks like a tough run.
Nottingham Forest are also in trouble, but their recent triumph over Brighton gave them hope of survival.
With only one point separating 19th and 16th in the league, the relegation battle should go down to the wire.
