Manchester United vs Everton: Man Utd is starting to show signs of promise. With the Red Devils on a two-game winning streak and Everton undefeated at Old Trafford for the past six consecutive years, count on the hosts to take the lead this weekend.
Things finally began to look for Manchester United in the Premier League. In their last game as a visitor, they defeated their fierce Manchester City rivals in a fierce 2-1 victory, before taking the lead over Tottenham at home for the same score.
The hosts are now undefeated in their last five PL games and are currently in fifth place in the championship, five points behind Chelsea, fourth.
Meanwhile, Everton recorded his first victory in four games with an excellent 3-1 victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park. The contingent visitor was on his way from the first whistle and took the lead in the first ten minutes. Frank Lampard’s team played the second violin throughout this match, finally achieving a single goal of comfort.
Either way, Everton has yet to ensure the consistency of its campaign. The Toffees only have two victories to show off their seven previous PL clashes.
To make matters worse, the guests were the weakest on the road this quarter. So far, they have only won their last eight starts, scoring no more than four out of twenty-four possible points.
It should also be mentioned that Everton did not obtain bragging rights during its last five visits to this site. As United has only stumbled once at home so far, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men are the favorites to win all three points this weekend.
Also, despite Everton’s poor sequence along the way, it must be said that the guests did not descend without fighting. They have found the bottom of the net seven times only in their last four exits.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have not kept blank sheets in their previous five PL games here. To top it off, their previous h2h meeting here saw the two teams find the bottom of the network together.
As such, count on the Toffees to have their names on the score sheet with Manchester United.
