Everton vs. Manchester United: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester United travel to Everton in Sunday’s evening kick-off looking to recover from their derby humiliation.

Everton have gone six games without a loss and came from behind to beat Southampton last time out.

Conor Coady and Dwight McNeill scored their first goals for their new club with Everton comfortably in mid-table.

Manchester United conceded six to their local rivals Manchester City last weekend, with both Erling Haaland and Phil Foden scoring hat-tricks.

They avoided embarrassment in the Europa League on Thursday, recovering from a goal down to beat Omonia Nicosia.

Premier League form: Everton W2 D3 L0; Manchester United W4 D0 L1
Premier League top scorers
Everton – Antony Gordon & Demarai Gray 2 goals each
Manchester United – Marcus Rashford 3 goals

Match history
Everton recorded a 1-0 win in the fixture last year, with Antony Gordon’s deflected goal the winner.

United have won just one of the last six league meetings between the two, a 3-1 away win back in November 2020.

Last five Premier League meetings
Everton 1 Manchester United 0 – 09/04/22
Manchester United 1 Everton 1 – 02/10/21
Manchester United 3 Everton 3 – 06/02/21
Everton 1 Manchester United 3 – 07/11/20
Everton 1 Manchester United 1 – 01/03/20

Team news
Gordon could come into the XI having been a substitute against Southampton last time out due to illness.

This would likely be the only change, although would be harsh on McNeill who opened his Everton account at St. Mary’s.

Manchester United will likely bring Casemiro in for a first league start, with Scott McTominay dropping out.

Anthony Martial did well off the bench and he could start ahead of Jadon Sancho who has struggled in recent games.

Expected starting XI’s
Everton (4-3-3): Pickford; Coleman, Coady, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Gueye, Onana, Iwobi; Gray, Maupay, Gordon
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Martinez, Lindelof, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen; Rashford, Fernandes, Anthony; Martial


Result: Draw
United have a poor recent record at Goodison Park and Everton are finding their feet under Frank Lampard

Correct Score: 1-1
Everton have the best defensive record in the league so far and a limited amount of goals is probable here

Anytime Goalscorer: Marcus Rashford
Rashford was the difference in the Europa League on Thursday and he has made a good start to the season
