Reason for Everton vs Manchester United Predictions
Everton has registered three straight wins and is unbeaten in their last four matches. They are coming from an impressive 2-1 win over Arsenal, and perhaps the only negative for them in the game was failing to keep a clean sheet. The goal conceded through a Pepe penalty meant Everton had managed just two clean sheets in their last 13 matches, and these have come in the previous three games. Defensively, the Toffees still need to do more, after surviving moments under pressure against Arsenal and having conceded two or more goals in eight of their last 15 matches, they will need to be at their best against this Manchester United side. The team has been great in attack, and head here, having scored in 15 of their 17 matches this season, and 10 of their last 15 games have been high scoring, producing over 2.5 goals. Everton has two straight wins at home but just one clean sheet in the previous eight home games. Bernard is a great player, and with one move, he can create problems for the opponent. He has excellent dribbling, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Top scorer Dominic Calvert-Levin played 36 games, scored 13 goals last season, and this youngster uses every opportunity to endanger the opponent, and a great career is ahead of him.
On their part, Manchester United is coming from a very impressive 6-2 win over Leeds United in the Premier League. Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes scored twice each, with Victor Lindelof and Daniel James getting one apiece. Bruno Fernandes will particularly be of interest here, as he is in fine form and has scored three goals already in the two matches he has played against Everton. In the 3-1 win at Goodison Park, he engineered the comeback with two goals and an assist after United trailed early on. He is United’s lead scorer in the league and will hope to guide his side to the semis. Manchester United head here with three wins in their last five matches and have scored two or more goals in four of their previous five games. However, they need some improvement in defense, having conceded two or more goals in three of their last five matches and managing just one clean sheet in their previous five games. Seven of United’s last eight games have produced over 2.5 goals, and it is away from home that they have really flourished this season. Scott McTominay has excellent control of the ball, he can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like this. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
