Elation for Man Utd, as they put nine goals past a depleted 10-man Southampton during the week. They won’t get too carried away with that victory though considering the Saints are on a current run of four straight league defeats, but it’ll still give them confidence heading into the weekend.
Everton won their midweek game too, but not quite in the same emphatic fashion. That 2-1 victory over Leeds sees them back on track for a European spot, after a slight hiccup at the end of January when drawing with Leicester and losing to an out of touch Newcastle side.
They’ve gone W6-D1-L2 from their nine outings dating back to early December, beating all of Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal.
The Red Devils continue to try and keep up with their Manchester rivals at the top of the table. They’ve gone an impressive W11-D4-L1 from their 16 outings since beating the Toffees in the reverse fixture back in early November. That includes a much-improved record at Old Trafford, winning five of their seven here.
However, each of those four draws came from their five most recent outings against top-half sides, winning the other against Aston Villa.
That victory did only come by a one goal margin though, with the winner coming in true Man Utd style through a controversial penalty decision, while 75% of those stalemates finished goalless.
Man United And Everton To Draw
Everton may have lost the last league meeting between these two sides 3-1, but they were in a tricky patch in the midst of a three-game losing run at the time, and we’d expect them to put in a better showing this time around.
Indeed, both meetings last term finished 1-1, and that could well be on the cards again considering how fine the margins are between these sides.
Over the last 10 matches, Man Utd have picked up 21 points and Everton 20, as only the Citizens have picked up more than them over that period.
Although Liverpool versus Man City will take the headlines this weekend, this should be the game everyone should watch based on form.
We’ll steer clear of the goals market considering the hosts just netted nine goals in a single game and look capable of creating a goal out of nothing.
By contrast, Dominic Calvert-Lewin got back on the scoresheet for Everton last time out and they could well pose an equally dangerous threat with their quality in attack.
