Manchester United vs Everton Prediction
Things have finally started to look up for Manchester United in the Premier League. Their last clash on the road saw them take down fierce rivals Manchester City in a nail-biting 2-1 victory, prior to which they got the better of Tottenham at home by the very same scoreline.
The hosts are now unbeaten in their past five PL fixtures and are currently sitting fifth in the league, five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Everton registered their first win in four games by pulling off a stunning 3-1 victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park. The visiting contingent were on the go right from the first whistle and took the lead within the first ten minutes. Frank Lampard’s side played second fiddle throughout that matchup, ultimately managing no more than a consolation goal.
Be that as it may, Everton are yet to ensure consistency in their campaign. The Toffees have just two wins to boast of from their previous seven PL clashes.
To make matters worse, the guests have been at their weakest on the road this term. So far, they have just one win from their past eight outings, garnering no more than four points from a possible twenty-four.
It is also worth mentioning that Everton have not secured the bragging rights in any of their last five visits to this venue either. Given that United have stumbled just once at home so far, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men are the favorites to come away with the three points this weekend.
Furthermore, despite Everton’s poor streak on the road, it needs saying that the guests have not gone down without a fight. They found the back of the net seven times from their last four outings alone.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have not kept a clean sheet in any of their previous five PL games here. To top it off, their previous h2h encounter here witnessed both teams find the back of the net together.
As such, count on the Toffees to have their names on the scoresheet along with Manchester United in this one.
