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

Manchester United vs Everton 101 Great Goals prediction: Manchester United 1-0 Everton

After their brilliant win over Chelsea last week, Everton will be looking to replicate that performance at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Toffees sacked Marco Silva following the 5-2 loss to Liverpool at Anfield and appointed Duncan Ferguson as caretaker boss.

Surprisingly, Ferguson instilled some desire and work rate in the players with the limited time he had.

Everton came out flying and managed to beat Chelsea 3-1 with a pretty impressive performance.

Now, they’ll be looking to replicate that this weekend against a Man United side in good form.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær may have been under pressure a month or so ago, but recent results have been impressive.

Despite Jose Mourinho’s blistering start to life at Tottenham, Man United stopped them in their tracks with a 2-1 win.

United then followed that up with an equally impressive 2-1 win over “noisy neighbours” Manchester City.

Now, with both clubs picking up somewhat surprising results recently, they will go head to head this weekend.

Manchester United vs Everton: Who will win?

Following their win against AZ Alkmaar on Thursday evening, Manchester United are the favourites for this clash.

The Red Devils are priced at 4/5 to win the game at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Duncan Ferguson’s Everton are the outsiders, priced at 7/2.

A draw, which is very much viable, is priced at 27/10.

The Toffees made life very hard for Chelsea last weekend and frustrated them for most of the match.

Their game plan certainly paid off, and they were able to get a few goals at the other end.

Considering they won’t have the home advantage this weekend, expect Everton to drop deeper which could result in a low-scoring affair.

While saying that, Everton were unable to keep Chelsea out last week and despite them playing deeper, could face more pressure with less possession.

That’s why we predict a 1-0 scoreline for Manchester United, priced at 15/2.

In terms of goalscorers, there are two obvious candidates for the Red Devils.

Marcus Rashford has been in fine form recently and is priced at 15/4 to score first.

Anthony Martial failed to score against AZ Alkmaar on Thursday but could also play this weekend, priced at 5/1 to score first.

Meanwhile, Everton’s most likely player to score first according to the bookies is Moise Kean, priced at 8/1.

Considering his fine form of late, we expect Rashford to score again this weekend and while his odds are not spectacular at 4/1, he looks the best choice.

Daniel James, who was rested on Thursday, is also an option and comes at more appealing odds of 15/2.

Manchester United vs Everton match preview

It’s been a good few weeks for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United.

The Red Devils stopped former boss Jose Mourinho in his tracks a couple of weeks back, when they beat Tottenham 2-1.

Mourinho had won all of his games in charge before that defeat.

Though, despite an impressive win, it was expected that Manchester City would walk all over Ole’s side as they looked to get back in the title race.

However, Man United clearly didn’t read the script.

Goals from Anthony Martial and a Marcus Rashford penalty secured a 2-1 win in City’s own back garden.

That was followed up on Thursday night with a 4-0 win over AZ Alkmaar, with youngster Mason Greenwood scoring a brace.

Everton will no doubt be resilient, but Man United should be able to break them down.

Can the Toffees keep United out?

What a performance that was from Everton last weekend.

In a season where they have been absolutely hopeless, the Toffees came out 3-1 winners against a Chelsea side who have impressed in this campaign.

It was by no means pretty, but Everton frustrated Frank Lampard’s side and managed to grab some goals on the break.

That win seemingly convinced the Everton board to keep Duncan Ferguson in charge for another week while they search for a permanent manager.

That means we’ll see a very similar set up from the Toffees this weekend.

Expect Everton to be compact and full of energy, chasing down every loose ball.

The big concern is whether they can perform as they did last weekend, but away from home.

Everton have notoriously struggled away from home for many seasons, and sitting deeper could see them whittled down by a strong Man United attack.

If they perform like they did last weekend though, they are more than capable of coming out with a draw or more.
