Both Manchester United and Everton aim to bounce back from disappointing performances at the weekend to keep slim top four chances alive.
Fifth-placed United got “Pulised” struggling to a tepid goalless against WBA, while the Toffees came unstuck in the Merseyside derby losing 3-1 to Liverpool at Anfield.
Undefeated in their last 19 PL outings, United badly need a win at Old Trafford to keep their faint top four hopes intact. Pure and simple, dropping 19 points at home is just not good enough for Jose Mourinho and his men.
The edgy Mourinho bemoaned his lack of options going into the game against the Baggies, but United could be boosted by the swift return of record signing Paul Pogba from injury.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera could also make timely reappearances after suspension. King Swede Zlatan to score at any time is a measly 10-11 with most companies and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if he caps his comeback with a goal.
Defensively, United will have to keep free-scoring Romelu Lukaku in check. But the bulky Belgian hardly had a kick of the ball against Liverpool and odds of 9-4 to score AAT with Unibet aren’t so attractive.
After the weekend goalless bore draw, we’ve now seen under 2.5 goals scored in 10 of United’s last 12 Premier League home games. And despite Everton badly missing their best defender Seamus Coleman with a broken leg, you have to fancy this to come in again at 101-100 with Marathon.
United can be backed with confidence at 4-7 with William Hill to return to winning ways at home, while United win to Nil at 31-20 with BetVictor also catches the eye, with United win 1-0 (25-4 netbet) / 2-0 win (7-1 Bet Victor) as the scorelines.
