Welcome to our Everton vs Manchester United preview, predictions and head to head analysis. Everton are in 7th place in the league. Their only loss this season has come against Manchester City in the second week of the season. Since then draws and Spurs and Swansea, and then the draw against Liverpool, interspersed with wins at Reading and West Brom and the impressive win over Chelsea have seen them keep within striking distance of the top places in the league. A win here could catapult them to second place in the league.

Manchester United are in third place in the league, level on points with second placed Arsenal. They dropped two points at home to Newcastle after an impressive start to the season, followed by a loss to Swansea. They then strung together 3 victories against Liverpool, Southampton and Sunderland. However that was followed by a feeble performance against Arsenal. They need to get back on the winning trail.

Conclusion

Early in the 2000’s Manchester United was winning this fixture almost every year. Recently however that has changed, with Everton winning the last three. But Manchester United have had their problems in recent years and weren’t quite the force of old. However I think this Manchester United side is stronger, and I expect them to win this. My second choice would be a draw.
