Manchester United vs Everton Preview

Manchester United vs Everton

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 28th October 2018

Kick-off time – 16:00 GMT

Manchester United fans are no longer optimist about their team winning games even when they play at home.

The Red Devils were beaten and outplayed by Juventus in midweek at home to continue their poor start to the season.

However, their form in the league has improved slightly in recent weeks.

Before the international break, they came from 2 goals down to beat Newcastle United after a poor start.

Last weekend they almost pulled off the same kind of win at Stamford Bridge after turning a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead against Chelsea, however, Ross Barkley scored with effectively the last kick of the game to share the spoils.

The Red Devils head into this game with 4 wins from their first 9 league games and they sit 10th in the league table.

United have shipped in 16 goals so far and have a negative goal difference at this stage for the first time in 28 years ago.

Everton also have their defencive problems as they head to Old Trafford for this game.

The Toffees have kept just two clean sheets so far, and they have been breached at least two times in 3 of their last 4 games on the road.

The Toffees beat Crystal Palace 2-0 to extend their Premier League winning streak to 3 on the bounce, however, they have won just once in 4 away games this season, and they don’t particularly have a good record against Manchester United.

Manchester United have won more Premier League games against Everton than any other opponent, and they haven’t lost to the Toffees since 2015.

Bookmakers make Manchester United odds-on favourites to come out on top while goal markets suggest this could be a high-scoring game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.
