Manchester United vs Everton prediction – Premier League

Manchester United will play against Everton on Saturday and will resume their Premier League season at home, fresh off a last-gasp win against Villarreal in the Champions League on Wednesday. Man United are fourth in the table, one point behind leaders Liverpool, while Rafael Benitez’s Everton are fifth, tied on points (13) with their opponents this weekend at Old Trafford. Here is everything you need to know about Manchester United vs Everton football prediction for the Premier League match of the season.

Team news

Manchester United

Harry Maguire remains sidelined due to injury and Aaron Wan-Bissaka returns from suspension.

Luke Shaw may be forced to sit out again on Saturday due to a shoulder injury despite being named in England’s squad but Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot are on standby.

It’s unclear whether Solskjaer will put Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench.

Amad Diallo and Marcus Rashford will not be back until after the international break.

Jordan Pickford and Lucas Digne returned from injuries but the former is now doubtful.

On the other hand, Rafa Benitez will have to wait until after the international break to bring back Seamus Coleman, Richarlison, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Alex Iwobi is also a big question mark.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin is expected to start on Saturday while Andre Gomes is sidelined.

With Iwobi out, it wouldn’t be surprising if Benitez deployed a back three or moved Lucas Digne further forward with Ben Godfrey at left back. Iwobi’s replacement, Anthony Gordon, is a natural choice.

Manchester United vs Everton Prediction

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the game-winning goal for Manchester United against Villarreal and David de Gea kept them in the game. The atmosphere at Old Trafford was electrifying, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team will need to capitalize on it.

To snap a two-game losing streak Everton beat struggling Norwich 2-0 last weekend. Last time around, Rafa Benitez was able to welcome back some crucial defenders, but his first-choice attack duo of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is still missing.

United hasn’t lost at home to Everton since 2013, and if they want to keep up with their title rivals, they can’t afford to drop points here.

A full-fledged Everton will be without a number of key players as they would have liked to get at least a point at Old Trafford. 

A full-fledged Everton would have liked to get at least a point at Old Trafford, but they will be without a number of key players. We expect Man United to win all three points this weekend, possibly maintaining a rare clean sheet.
