Flying high from their 9-0 stomping of the Saints, a buoyant Man United host Everton on Saturday night at Old Trafford.
After failing to break down a resilient Arsenal side at the weekend, Manchester United bounced back in style to thrash Southampton 9-0 at Old Trafford. They were playing against 10 men for most of the game and 9 by the end, but take nothing away from United. Fans will be delighted with the fact that Anthony Martial bagged a brace, after having struggled for form recently – with Scott McTominay getting on the score sheet once again.
The Toffees have been a little bit inconsistent in the Premier League of late, with the weekend seeing a very disappointing home loss to struggling Newcastle. The Toffees have a tough trip to Leeds on Wednesday night before this game, with a result badly needed to keep on the heels of the top 4.We’ll be keeping an eye out for deadline day signing Joshua King from Bournemouth, who will look to hit the ground running.
United have won their last two meetings against Everton, with the most recent being a 2-0 EFL Cup win just before Christmas. Prior to that, United won the reverse fixture 3-1 at Goodison Park with both meetings last season ending in 1-1 draws. It has been nearly 14 months since the sides met at Old Trafford, with the last 3 meetings all taking place on Merseyside – therefore it will be Everton’s first visit to a fanless OT.
Both sides might’ve failed to score at the weekend, however United put 9 past Southampton, and we see Everton scoring against Leeds on Wednesday night. Both teams have scored in the last 3 Premier League meetings so our tip is a home win + BTTS @ 21/10 with Bet365.
