The Premier League is slowly closing in, which is why both Everton and Man United are very eager to win as many points as possible. The last couple of matches of the season will decide their European future. The Red Devils hope for a spot in the Champions League, the Toffees hope for a place in the Europa League. And that’s why their game at the Goodison Park is of utmost importance for both sides. So, what’s gonna happen on Sunday? Find out in our Everton vs Manchester United prediction and betting tips!
The Toffees have set their eyes on the 7th place on the Premier League table. If they finish the season there, they have a chance to get a ticket to the Europa League. Of course, this is only possible if Manchester City (the team that’s already qualified for the Champions League) wins the FA Cup. And that seems like a pretty plausible scenario.
Actually, they shouldn’t worry much about Man City and their FA Cup challenge; Everton need to worry about getting to the 7th position. Right now, they’re not far away from that place, but the problem is that many other teams have the same desire. The teams in question are Wolves, Watford, and Leicester City, although a few other teams also have a mathematical chance of getting to that spot.
Still, Everton seem to have a pretty good chance, especially if they manage to grab at least a point on Sunday. After the match they play against Crystal Palace and Burnley, before facing Tottenham in the final round. Their fans are expecting at least a total of 7 points from those four matches. And that might be enough for grabbing the Europa League spot. So, can they snatch a point or three against the Red Devils? Read this Everton vs Manchester United prediction till the end to find out!
The Red Devils are at the 6th place ahead of the weekend, which isn’t too bad, because it takes to the Europa League. But, their ambitions are higher, they want to play in the Champions League next season. But, for that, they need to get to one of the top 4 places. Those places aren’t far away from them, but the competition is really tough. And the upcoming games seem very difficult.
Manchester United have to play against their city rival, Man City, as well as against Chelsea. Winning those games won’t be easy, which is why the Red Devils want to beat teams that are lower on the table than them, including Everton.
What’s gotta worry their fans is that Man United are in a very poor form at the moment. They lost 5 out of the previous 7 matches. And the worst of all is that the games they won were at the Old Trafford; they haven’t won an away match for more than a month. Actually, when it comes to their form on the road in the Premier League, they’ve lost every single game since February.

Everton vs Manchester United Prediction
Manchester United need to win this one and put an end to their poor away run. They are the better of the two and need to show it. It won’t be easy, but I think the player quality is what’s gonna decide the game.
