  • Manchester United vs Everton – Tips and Preview
After a disappointing couple of weeks, the Red Devils return to Premier League action that saw them suffer back-to-back defeats to Fulham at home and Manchester City away. Erik Ten Hag’s United are sixth in the table, 11 points off the fourth spot with 11 games to go.

The visitors, meanwhile, are placed 16th on the table after falling to the bottom spot following a point penalty for violating the Financial Fair Play rules. United secured an easy 3-0 victory over the Toffees in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park in November, extending their Premier League winning streak against Everton to four.

Ten Hag’s injury list keeps on mounting as Manchester United struggle to find any consistency in performance this season. Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, and Johnny Evans are all doubtful for Saturday’s game with minor injuries. Meanwhile, Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Tyrell Malacia are still over a week away from returning to action.

Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, and Anthony Martial are out for a long duration. Though Everton’s injury list is short, Arnaut Danjuma and Dele Alli are out for a while. However, Idrissa Gueye might be fit enough to feature in this clash.

Manchester United vs Everton – Tips and Preview

Manchester United have lost 11 of their 27 games so far in the Premier League this season. They seemed to have found their groove since February after Rasmus Hojlund broke his goal jinx and formed a match-winning partnership with Alejandro Garnacho.

However, the streak was broken as the striker was ruled out for several weeks due to injury. Everton have a chance to capitalise on the Red Devil’s inconsistency as Old Trafford is no longer the fortress it used to be.

However, Sean Dyche’s side has failed to win a game in their last seven attempts and not kept a clean sheet in their last five. Given these worrying statistics, the odds seem to swing slightly in favour of the home side, who might just walk away with all three points and a narrow victory.
