Manchester United will look to bounce back from a crushing defeat to Manchester City when it travels to Goodison Park this weekend to take on Everton.
Manchester United has a good record against Everton in recent seasons, winning six of its last ten encounters against the Toffeees. Everton has had its moments two, taking two victories and two draws from these encounters, including a famous FA Cup victory at Old Trafford in 2009.
Manchester United’s most recent trip to Goodison Park produced a 3-3 draw.
Everton has been on a tough run of fixtures, playing Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City in its last five matches and losing all three of those encounters. Everton pulled off two wins in its other fixtures during this period, putting away Fulham and WBA.
Everton has scored 6 goals during this tough part of its season. Predictably the defence has come in for a hammering, with 9 goals conceded during this period.
Manchester United’s record looks patchy, with two wins, two draws and a loss on record for its last five games. The side is reeling after conceding its first home defeat of the season, and one of the heaviest in its distinguished history to Manchester City.
United has had a decent scoring rate, with 9 goals scored in five matches. The clubs defensive record has been skewed by Sunday’s result, with 10 goals conceded in five games.
Everton will want to take advantage of a vulnerable Manchester United in this fixture. With home game advantage and a foe with dented confidence, Everton could pull a win out of the bag.
However, United’s players won’t want to be on the receiving end of the Sir Alex Ferguson hairdryer for the second week in succession, and will throw everything at this match.
Our feeling is that this match could end in a draw, and that if a team produces a win it will be United. With this in mind our Everton vs. Manchester United betting tip is to lay Everton at Betfair.
