This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Everton and Blackburn Rovers at 15:00 on Sunday, 20th September 2009 in the Premier League.
Everton prepare to entertain Blackburn Rovers at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Toffees are clearly on top, winning 55.00% of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Goodison Park was just last season, in August 2008, with Blackburn R. inflicting a narrow 2-3 defeat upon the Toffees in a Premier League match.
