Recent respective form guides

Middlesbrough's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Boro have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Everton however, is much more impressive, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. The Toffees's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 7 goals for and 6 against.

Middlesbrough are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 5 points from 7 matches. Everton find themselves in a respectable 5th position, courtesy of the 13 points they have accumulated from 7 games.
