Past Meetings

This game has been evenly matched in the last few years, with Everton recording a 4-0 win the last time the two sides met at Goodison Park last season. This was then followed up with a 1-1 draw earlier this term at Old Trafford. A number of draws preceded those results, going back several years.

Team News

Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be aided by the return of Andre Gomes following his horrible ankle break against Tottenham several months ago. However, they will be missing the services of left-back Lucas Digne, who has pulled a muscle and will skip the clash. Theo Walcott is also carrying an injury and is a doubt.

Man United, meanwhile, will continue with Anthony Martial leading the line as Marcus Rashford is out for the foreseeable future. Martial has been in stunning form as of late. Paul Pogba’s return date is still unknown by the club, but new signing Bruno Fernandes is impressing in the middle of the pitch for United.

Everton vs. Manchester United Preview and Predictions

Manchester United are closing in on Chelsea for the last remaining Champions League position, with only three points now separating the two sides. United have won their last two games and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is slowly finding out what his best XI is.

If they want to overtake Chelsea, they will have to leave Goodison Park with all three points. Carlo Ancelotti is slowly working his old magic in Liverpool, giving his players a little sprinkling of magic as he bids to move them up the table. Despite their 3-2 defeat to Arsenal last weekend, you can clearly see the work Ancelotti is doing with his players, who lacked hapless under Marco Silva.

Manchester United will have to be wary of Richarlison, with Everton’s key man in good form as of late. Everton haven’t lost at home under Ancelotti, with the Toffees 2.55 for the win, and a draw at 3.30.

For Man United, meanwhile, a lot will depend on whether Solskjaer can get his side to maintain their consistency from the previous two games. There have been several times this season when it felt like they were going in the right direction, only for results to go against them. United are 2.90 for an away victory, and their first win at Goodison Park since January 2018.
