Jose Mourinho is still not dismissed though his team has won only one match from the seven matches. That was the comeback with Newcastle (3:2).
Analysts note the transfer of MU to more aggressive style. But it concerns only the second half when the Red Devils include the pressure in the rival’s half of the field and try to score. Against Chelsea (2:2) that has happened twice and never with Juventus (0:1).
Romelu Lukaku continues not to score in important matches. With the Blues Anthony Martial has scored double, the Belgian forward has only once shot on target but has won four combats on the second floor. In the Champions League match the actions of Romelu were more effective — the same one shot but 5 successful combats and 73% of exact passes.
Marcos Rojo, Scott McTominay, Alexis Sánchеz , Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini are injured now.
The team from Liverpool isn’t burdened with Euro cups in the current season and now is above MU at the tournament brackets. In the last three EPL rounds Marco da Silva’s team didn’t lose the points.
In a match with Crystal Palace (2:0) the hosts of Goodison Park had overwhelming advantage by shots (20-7) but only their fifth part has got into goal mouth, having become productive in three minutes prior to a final whistle. And if the Londoners had scored a penalty in the middle of the second half, the Toffees would hardly have achieved even a draw.
Gylfi Sigurðsson who has 25% of shots of his team in the last match of the EPL, has scored already four goals and heads the list of goal-scorers of Everton together with Richarlison. Cenk Tosun who came off the bench in 4 out of 9 rounds has gained two goals. Gradually the process of adaptation of the Turkish forward in England is coming to an end.
Head-to-heads Man United vs Everton
Since the time of Alex Ferguson and David Moyes this opposition became the basic one. But recently the Toffees can’t win over Mourinho’s team. In seven last cases the victory of the Red Devils (5 times), or a draw (twice) were recorded.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Man United vs Everton
Man United to win – 1.70
Draw – 4.10;
Everton to win – 5.20
It is unclear at the expense of what the hosts will crack well organized defense of the rival if they permanently had problems in the last matches with this. One more curious detail is that 6 goals in a row in the Premier League the club from Manchester was scoring after a break. In the first half we will hardly see productive actions by the hosts and the bet that we offer is quite acceptable.
