Everton v Manchester United Premier League Preview, 1st January 5.30pm
Everton are in good form on home soil at the moment and look as if they can give the Red Devils a good run for their money. The Toffees are unbeaten in their last five league outings at Goodison Park now and their defence has really stepped up through the gears. Manchester United are carrying some decent away form at the moment, however, their defence has looked increasingly vulnerable lately. Everton are 4/1 underdogs on home soil with the draw at 14/5 and Manchester United at 4/6.
Everton News and Form
The Toffees have been solid enough at Goodison Park recently to suggest that they can get something out of this fixture. They have remained unbeaten in their last five at Goodison Park winning four of those and they held their own against Chelsea on Merseyside just before Christmas in a 0-0 draw. That is three clean sheets for them in their last four games on home soil and that may help keep the score down in this one. Under 2.5 goals at Betfair for the fixture is at 3/4 odds. Everton are W6 D1 L3 at home this season in the top flight and given their early struggles this season, it’s a decent enough return. They have scored an average of 1.7 goals per home game and have taken a clean sheet in four of their ten home fixtures. So at the moment they could make life difficult for the Red Devils. 71% of the goals that Everton have scored on home soil this season have come in the second half of matches. Wayne Rooney is a price of 5/2 to get a goal against his former side. He is Everton’s top scorer for the season and until they bolster their forward ranks, they need him.
Manchester United News and Form
The Red Devils are on a current four match undefeated streak of form away from home, winning three of those games. There were denied a win at the King Power against Leicester in their last away games, drawing 2-2. That is no clean sheet in any of their last seven away games for the Red Devils now which is a suspicion and both teams to score at Betfair may well have a bit of appeal because of that. The shortest priced option in the correct score market is a 1-0 win for United, but the 1-1 draw is looking pretty appealing sat there at 7/1 odds. Jesse Lingard is now United’s joint top scorer away from home alongside Romelu Lukaku (out through injury) with four goals each. Lingard is trading at 11/8 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game and Lukaku’s absence is likely to bring Marcus Rashford into more prominence. Manchester United have scored at least two goals in each of their last four away games and 70% of their road games have gone over the 2.5 goal line. But this a tricky away game for them at the end of a really busy period and given their lack of clean sheets, they may play it a bit conservatively.
Everton v Manchester United Head to Head
Manchester United pounded Everton 4-0 at Old Trafford earlier in the season. That has left them with a five match unbeaten streak of form in the top flight against the Toffees. Everton are W3 D1 L1 though in their last five Premier League home games against the Red Devils. Manchester United have scored in each of their last six against Everton in all competitions.
Who will win – Everton v Manchester United Predictions
Everton may be good enough at the moment to dig out a point in this one. Basically Manchester United have been struggling for clean sheets recently and Everton looks much more organised in going about their business. A share of the spoils looks a decent option.
