Man Utd vs Everton prediction
Two teams level on points near the top of the Premier League table meet at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime as Manchester United host Everton.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side haven’t been overly convincing since hammering Leeds United 5-1 on the opening day. Narrow victories over both Wolverhampton Wanderers (80th minute) and West Ham United (89th minute) help them to where they are in the table, but they suffered a setback in losing 0-1 at home to Aston Villa last weekend.
Meanwhile, Everton bounced back from their own loss to the Villans with a comfortable 2–0 win at home to Norwich City a week ago.
Rafa Benitez’s side have been fairly solid at the back whilst posing a threat on the counter attack. The counter is also United’s strongest weapon but may see few opportunities in this game, at least while both teams are level. That’s because the Spanish manager will have most of his players behind the ball.
We should expect a tight affair in Manchester this weekend and whilst the hosts are certainly capable of winning I think there’s much better value in laying them because that gives us a price of nearly 2/1.
