Everton vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
The Toffees need to act soon, or else risk lose the great start they have made to their league campaign. They are now placed fourth in the table, and more than that they have to endure the fact that their arch-rivals Liverpool are back at the top of the standings.
This weekend, the game at the Goodison Park will be a pivotal one for the team, if they have huge hopes for this campaign.
They are pitted against the Red Devils, who are desperate for a win. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men seem to have run out of their luck, and they find themselves placed 15th in the table at the moment.
Moreover, they have also won just twice this campaign, and both wins had come against bottom-tier teams.
Likely, we can expect a fierce encounter between these two desperate teams, and there’s a high probability for the game to turn out to be a goal-fest.
However, Carlo Ancelotti’s men have been nigh unstoppable at home lately, and this might turn the tide slightly in their favor.
Everton vs Manchester United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- Five of the former eight encounters had goals from both teams.
- It’s been two years since the guests have won at this venue.
- 16 of the past 22 overall wins at this venue were recorded by the Red Devils.
Everton vs Manchester United: Prediction
The Toffees lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Newcastle. In the meantime, Solskjaer’s men lost 0-1 at home against Arsenal.
As things stand, Ancelotti’s men have the slight edge. They were on an eight-game winning run before their magic touch came to an end with a draw against Liverpool. But still, they have the potential to get back to their winning run, and especially at this stadium.
At the Goodison Park, they have lost just once all through 2020, and just twice in the past 14-month period. Meanwhile, their counterparts are on a two-match losing run, and they have a total of just one win from their last four league games.
Moreover, they are winless against this rival in the past two years, and they have won just thrice at this ground since 2011.
As such, expect Everton to secure at least one point this Saturday.
However, understand that the Devils are still one of the best teams in the PL, and they are desperate to put on a good performance as well. On top of that, they had recorded 16 of the preceding 22 h2h wins at this venue as well.
Considering these factors, expect goals to come from both sides of the pitch this weekend.
