In the seventh round of the English Premier League Manchester United will resume their campaign at home against Everton. United is one point behind the leaders Liverpool but standing fourth on the table while Rafael Benitez’s Everton are fifth, tied on points (13) with their opponents this weekend at Old Trafford. Here is our expert guess on Manchester United vs Everton football prediction for the Premier League match of the season.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has returned from suspension to the Manchester United squad but Harry Maguire remains sidelined due to injury.
With Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot on standby, Luke Shaw may be forced to sit out again on Saturday due to a shoulder injury.
Given the short time between games, Solskjaer should use this opportunity to flex his roster, starting Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic, and Edinson Cavani.
But it’s unclear whether he’ll actually bench players like Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo. Especially after his game-winning goal in the middle of the week.
Until after the international break Amad Diallo and Marcus Rashford will not be back.
To start Everton’s 2-0 win over Norwich last Saturday Jordan Pickford and Lucas Digne returned from injuries, but the former is now doubtful.
Until after the international break Rafa Benitez will have to wait to bring back Seamus Coleman, Richarlison, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Alex Iwobi is also a big question mark.
For the match against United, Jean-Philippe Gbamin is expected to start but 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
David de Gea kept Manchester United in the game against Villarreal, which was a horrible performance for them, and Cristiano Ronaldo scored the game-winning goal. The atmosphere at Old Trafford was electrifying, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team will need to capitalize on it.
Last week Everton defeated Norwich to snap a two-game losing streak. 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.
Since 2013 United hasn’t lost at home to Everton, and if they want to keep up with their title rivals, they can’t afford to drop points here.
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. Man United will almost certainly be better than they were against Villarreal on Wednesday, and we expect them to win all three points this weekend, possibly maintaining a rare clean sheet.
Manchester United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Varane, Shaw; Matic, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba; Ronaldo
Everton possible starting lineup: Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Digne; Townsend, Doucoure, Allan, Iwobi; Gray; Rondon
