After suffering their third consecutive loss in Round 20 against the Sydney Swans, the Bombers have slipped to 13th place on the ladder, trailing 8th placed Richmond by one game and percentage.
Meanwhile, West Coast Eagles fans had something to cheer about last weekend, as their team finally put an end to their 16-game losing streak. They secured a hard-fought five-point victory against North Melbourne, marking their second win of the season.
Despite their loss last weekend, Essendon enters the upcoming match with great momentum. They displayed impressive resilience, erasing a 37-point deficit before time ran out. Players like Kyle Langford and Peter Wright will be crucial assets, and with Zach Merrett, Jye Caldwell, and Darcy Parish in good form, Essendon is likely to lead in clearances and contested possessions.
On the other hand, West Coast has some formidable players like Tim Kelly, Andrew Gaff, Shannon Hurn, and the 2018 Grand Final hero, Dom Sheed, who are all in good form. However, it might be a stretch to expect them to secure two consecutive wins, and it is more likely that Essendon will bounce back strongly in this match.
