Everton vs Manchester United
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 4th December, 2016.
Kick-Off: 16:00 UK
Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool.
Everton are in desperate search for a turnaround in their fortunes when they host Manchester United for Sunday’s Premier League clash. The Ronald Koeman managed side made a good start to the season with a 5 match unbeaten run. Starting with a defeat at Bournemouth on matchday 6, The Toffees are without a win in 7 of their 8 games. The slip in form have demoted them to 7th in the standings and are coming on the back of a three match win-less run.
Manchester United on the other hand are finding life under Jose Mourinho extremely difficult. The Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw at West Ham last weekend, which is their fourth consecutive draw at home. Their overall form is not better either as there is only 1 win in their last 7 Premier League games. However, they can draw some positives from the 4-1 thumping win against West Ham in midweek’s League Cup clash. United will be without their manager for the clash against Everton as he was sent off during the matchday 1-1 draw against West Ham on matchday 13. The Reds are 6th on the log with 20 points, a point above their matchday 14 opponent Everton.
Everton vs Manchester United: Head-to-Head Statistics
The teams met three times last season with the latest coming in the FA cup semi-final. Manchester United were the winners on all three occasions.
It is evenly poised when you look at the last 10 league meetings between these two. Manchester have won 5 of them and Everton were victorious in 4. It is once again even in the last 10 league clashes at Goodison Park as both teams picked 4 wins each alongside 2 draws.
Everton vs Manchester United: Prediction
This is one hard game to predict considering the fact that both team are in desperate search for a league redemption. Everton is searching for that form that saw them pull 5 competitive games victories at the beginning of the season. Manchester United on the other hand are looking for that consistency, and will hoping they transcend their scoring form in other competition to the league.
So this games is very likely to end in a win for any of these sides, with very little chance of a draw.
