Everton vs Manchester United betting tips: Premier League preview & predictions

Everton vs Man United 101 Great Goals prediction: Everton 1-2 Man United

Despite being knocked out of the Champions League in midweek, there is still plenty to play for in terms of Manchester United’s season.

The Red Devils were disappointingly knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona on Tuesday but are still in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

A win over Everton would see them potentially go as high as fourth.

Though, their opponents are no pushovers at Goodison Park.

Despite several rough patches this season, Everton have turned Goodison into a fortress of late.

Their last three home games have come against Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal with the Toffees winning two and drawing one.

In that time they have also not conceded a single goal.

Everton vs Man United: Who will win?

Despite Everton’s recent form at home, it’s no surprise that Man United go into this game as favourites.

The Red Devils can be picked up at 6/5 to win the game outright.

Everton’s outing at Fulham showed just how poor the Toffees can be if things don’t go right and Man United will look to exploit that.

As a result, Everton go into the game at odds of 21/10.

A 2-1 Man United win, as we predict, is priced at a solid 9/1.

Another port of call for this game is the goalscorer market.

After missing out on most of the game against Barcelona, Romelu Lukaku will be raring to go against his former club.

He is the current favourite to score first at odds of 9/2.

Lukaku is followed by Marcus Rashford, priced at 5/1 to score first before Richarlison at 6/1.

Man United’s main man in the middle Paul Pogba is priced at a very attractive 15/2 to score first.

Starting with the home side, Everton have had a mixed couple of weeks.

Coming off the back of wins against Chelsea, West Ham and Arsenal, there was surely no way that Everton could lose to already relegated Fulham.

Confidence was high, performances were flowing and then came the disappointment.

Everton simply didn’t show up at Craven Cottage and fell to a shocking 2-0 defeat.

Tom Cairney claimed his first Premier League goal since 2010, coincidentally against Everton for Hull, to start the scoring off.

Ex-Liverpool man Ryan Babel then secured all three points for the relegated side.

Safe to say, Everton fans were not happy in the slightest after they crashed right back down to earth.

With just how often Fulham were able to carve Everton open, the Toffees will need to produce a performance like the ones against Chelsea and Arsenal if they are to avoid a potentially embarrassing defeat at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Can the Red Devils get back on track?

Just as it’s been for Everton, it’s been a difficult week for Manchester United and their fans.

The Red Devils harboured hopes of progressing through to the Champions League semi-finals despite a 1-0 first leg defeat against Barcelona.

While it was by no means impossible, it was always going to be difficult.

In the end, that was an understatement.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side were given a footballing lesson at the Camp Nou as Barcelona ran out 3-0 winners on the night and 4-0 on aggregate.

Lionel Messi tore the Manchester United defence apart, scoring two goals while Philippe Coutinho scored the third.

Now, Man United must bounce back if they are to stay in the race for the top four.

A win against Everton could take the Red Devils up as high as fourth.

Though, it’s always easier said than done.

Everton team news vs Man United

There’s one big piece of team news for Everton going into this game.

Andre Gomes will miss the clash having accepted a three-match ban for a stamp on Aleksandar Mitrovic in his last outing.

He will miss games against Man United, Crystal Palace and Burnley.

With that in mind, Morgan Schneiderlin could get recalled to the side after recovering from injury.

Phil Jagielka retained his spot in the team against Fulham after a goal in the game against Arsenal but after a horror showing in London will likely lose his place to Michael Keane.

Yerry Mina is the only player expected to miss out due to injury.

Man United team news vs Everton

There are a few injury problems for Manchester United right now.

Ander Herrera will miss the game against Everton with a hamstring injury first of all.

Eric Bailly suffered a concussion during the recent international break and is yet to make his comeback.

Antonio Valencia has also been out with injury and will likely miss the game this weekend.

Luke Shaw will miss the game due to suspension while it’s been suggested Alexis Sanchez could make a return to the side having come on in the Camp Nou.
