Manchester United were taught a few footballing lessons by Juventus in the Champions League in midweek, and their inability to see out a 2-1 lead at Stamford Bridge last weekend means that Jose Mourinho is still in something of a sticky situation at Old Trafford.
His United side welcome Everton on Sunday afternoon, and the Toffees come into this one on the back of an excellent run of form that has seen them climb to eighth following three straight Premier League wins. If you think that form will continue then your bravery could well be rewarded if you back the Everton away win at a well-overpriced 15/2 with Ladbrokes. Even the double chance of an away win or draw is worth considering at a price of 11/10 with William Hill.
The centre of Manchester United’s defence continues to look vulnerable. They were all over the shop at times in their draw at Chelsea, while they gave more than a fair share of chances away to Juve on Tuesday night. That could well open the door for Everton front man Richarlison, and the Brazilian comes into the weekend with promising form of four goals in seven Premier League games. Richarlison is 3/1 with Betfred to score anytime.
That said, you obviously can’t discount this United side from getting something out of a game that should really be winnable. They have the individual quality to hurt Everton, but can they bring it all together for a consistent team performance? They just don’t convince me in the slightest at the moment, and the more I look at an Everton clean sheet at odds of 9/2 with Coral, the more I like it.
But those of you who love to see a striker score against their former club should be inclined by a Romelu Lukaku goal anytime. The Belgian hasn’t scored in seven so is probably due a goal, and these kinds of droughts usually end up being broken against clubs that would really not want to see their former hero bag a goal. Lukaku is 6/5 with BoyleSports to find the net anytime.
