Everton v Man Utd Betting Predictions | Premier League BettingPublished December 1, 2016
Two teams desperately seeking a Premier League win meet on Sunday in what will be a nail-biting encounter at Goodison Park. Everton, without a win in three Premier League games, are down in seventh place. United, home draw specialists, are a point and a place above them.
Given that this is an away match, perhaps United stand a chance of winning. They’re cursed at Old Trafford, according to Paul Pogba, who might have only half-said that.
Four successive league draws there certainly makes it feel as though the Dreamy Theatre is forcing the Red Devils to toss and turn in their sleep. Although, to be fair to them, the football hasn’t been unbearable. United have been dominating games but failing to kill them off.
It doesn’t help that they have the worst conversion rate in the top flight. The likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic need to step their game up and smack the ball with a little more conviction. Everton aren’t exactly setting the world alight with their goalscoring exploits either. For all the cooing over Romelu Lukaku, he’s only scored seven league goals, the same total as Ibrahimovic.
As ever, it will be interesting to see if Jose Mourinho decides to start Henrikh Mkhitaryan. That will probably depend on how the Armenian is deployed, and how he fares, in midweek. The Special One could also see Chris Smalling return. Both managers need a win and we have a feeling that neither will get it. That was code for a draw. We’re predicting another draw.
Everton predicted XI: Stekelenburg, Jagielka, Baines, Coleman, Williams, Lennon, Barry, Bolasie, Gueye, Barkley, Lukaku
Manchester United XI: De Gea, Valencia, Rojo, Jones, Blind, Carrick, Herrera, Pogba, Rashford, Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic
