Everton vs Manchester Utd Prediction & Betting tips
The top three in the English Premier League seem to be already fixed. Behind it, however, there will be a tough fight for qualification for Europe in the last eleven games of the current championship.
The gap between fifth (Manchester United) and eleven (Everton FC) is just five points. Sunday afternoon there is a direct duel between Everton and Manchester United in Goodison Park. In addition to this game preview, the remaining previews can be found in the Premier League tip category.
The duel between the Toffees and the Red Devils undoubtedly deserves the title “top game” this weekend. Both teams have shown a rapidly increasing form in the past few weeks and can therefore act with great confidence. Everton has been cornering since signing Ancelotti.
The local rival of Liverpool FC has now been without home defeat for six home games and is therefore regarded by the best bookmakers as a minimal favorite on Sunday afternoon – the game starts at 14 p.m.
The dismissal of the Portuguese coach Marco Silva was inevitable, because the toffees could not even begin to meet the high expectations and in the meantime they even found themselves in a relegation zone. Quite surprising was the announcement of his successor a few days after the Silva-Aus. Ex-Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti was convinced of a commitment at Merseyside.
Everton has now played nine games under the 60-year-old star coach and has collected 17 points. If an “Ancelotti table” is created, it can be seen that the toffees with these 17 points from nine games can be found in third place. Only local rivals Liverpool and Manchester City have collected more points than the current eleventh in this phase.
Above all, the offensive was convincing because Carlo Ancelotti has never had a Premier League game without scoring his own goal.
Since the Silva release, Goodison Park has also become a fortress again. The Toffees haven’t lost any of their six home games, celebrating four wins. The two Premier League losses under Ancelotti occurred abroad against Manchester City and Arsenal.
Home games against the top six seem to be a specialty of the Everton Football Club. The Toffees have lost only one of their last eight home games (four wins, three draws) against the top six. That defeat came against Manchester City last September.
Have the Red Devils finally found their way and can they still look up? Manchester United has had to deal with setbacks and disappointments again and again this season.
Constancy in the game was rarely seen and the offensive game was extremely dependent on Marcus Rashford. However, the top scorer is currently injured and accordingly the prospects for the rest of the season were by no means positive.
After all, the Red Devils have never been statistically weaker than this season. Manchester United has 41 points on the credit side after 27 game days and in our betting base table service you can see that the team is thus ranked fifth. When comparing the last ten seasons, Manchester United was just as weak in 2015/16 (44 points). In the previous year, the Solskjaer team had 52 points at this point in the season.
The Solskjaer proteges, however, punish the critics and have presented themselves in very strong shape, especially in recent weeks. A look at the latest results shows that the defensive in particular has been significantly stabilized. The Europa League starter has conceded only one goal in the last five competitive matches. In the league, David de Gea recently remained three times in a row without conceding a goal.
In comparison, Manchester United previously required 23 Premier League games to keep three times zero.
Should a “zero victory” succeed on Sunday afternoon at Goodison Park, Manchester United would celebrate three league games in a row without conceding a goal for the first time since January 2018. Speaking of January 2018 – a victory against Everton was celebrated on New Year’s Day. This win was actually the only success in the last 13 games played on the first day of a month (eight draws, four defeats).
The obligation of the Portuguese European champion Bruno Fernandes is closely linked to the upswing. The central midfielder immediately took over the game. The statistics speak a clear language. Since his debut, no player has created more shots on goal (ten), more assists (two) and more chances (seven) than Bruno Fernandes.
