Manchester United vs Everton Betting Tips
After sacking Marco Silva, Everton appointed Duncan Ferguson as the caretaker manager. On his debut as Everton manager, Ferguson recorded a win. And it was a big one. His team beat high-flying Chelsea 3:1. The Toffees have another difficult challenge this weekend when they’re playing Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The win over the Blues from London showed that Everton definitely have a really tough squad, with top-class players in every position. That’s why the Red Devils need to take this game seriously. They mustn’t get carried away by their recent success stories if they wish to beat the Toffees.
Speaking of which, Manchester United have been really brilliant lately, winning three games of the four they played in December. And two of those wins came against real heavyweights, namely Manchester City and Tottenham. They were also very impressive mid-week in the Europa League, where they beat AZ Alkmaar by 4:0.
The game against Everton, however, can be tricky for Solskjaer’s boys. The thing is that the Toffees are likely to play very defensively in this match, the same they did against Chelsea. And that’s exactly the kind of football Manchester United players hate. The Red Devils want to be on the back foot, looking for their chances on the break, not the other way around.
If you take a look at their latest performances, they won the matches in which they played against attacking-minded teams. Manchester City, Tottenham and even AZ Alkmaar have all been playing attacking football this season.
When faced against defensive teams, like Sheffield United and Aston Villa, Manchester United weren’t able to win the maximum number of points. And if you go a little back in the past, you will see that Manchester United have lost against Bournemouth and Newcastle this season, both of which are famously very defensive-minded teams.
All of this means that we will probably see one very dynamic game, with Manchester United attacking and Everton counter-attacking. Judging by the past experience, it seems very likely that we will see goals on both ends here. Possibly more than just one on each end.

Manchester United Form and Latest News
The Red Devils are currently in a good form, but this doesn’t mean they’ve been like that the entire season. Actually, before beating their city rivals, their manager was really close to getting sacked. This is why it wouldn’t be surprising if the poor run returned for Manchester United.
Everton Form and Latest News
They are looking for the new manager and many big names are in the conversation. There are also speculations that the Toffees might make some big signings in January, with Zlatan Ibrahimović reported as their number 1 target. But, until then, Everton will probably try to avoid losing as many games as possible. That means that we’re probably going to be seeing them defending a lot while looking for their chances from quick counter-attacks and set-pieces.
