Man Utd v Everton Betting Offers and Tips
Every team in the Premier League would love to play European football. It brings in money, kudos and allows you to sign top quality players.
Man Utd’s place in the Champions League certainly helped them sign Romelu Lukaku in the summer.
The Belgian striker has hit the ground running at his new club scoring goals in the Premier League and Champions League and on Sunday he faces his former teammates for the first time when Everton are the opponents at Old Trafford.
Wayne Rooney will also face his former club although he upset his manager, Ronald Koeman, by being arrested for drink driving.
Man Utd v Everton Betting Analysis
Playing European football is not all positive. Playing and travelling around Europe in midweek has affected many a club’s league form before and it looks to already by taking a toll on Everton.
The Toffees have played more games than any other Premier League side due to their Europa League qualifying campaign and they certainly looked sluggish in their defeats against both Chelsea and Tottenham.
While Man Utd had a relatively easy home win over FC Basel on Tuesday, Everton had to travel to face Atalanta away from home. United would be the worthy favourites to win even if both teams were equally fresh but when you factor in Everton’s travels, you’ve got to back the home team to win at $1.40 with Unibet.
At the start of the season there was a lot of talk about Everton making a push for the top six. If they are to get there they’ll have to significantly improve their performances against those teams who are already there.
Ronald Koeman has a worrying trend of changing the way he sets his team up against the Premier League’s best sides with disappointing results. The Toffees were very disappointing against Chelsea and Tottenham and we think they’ll sink without a trace again at Old Trafford.
Romelu Lukaku’s first appearance against Everton since his summer switch will take the headlines but it could be another former Everton player who brakes the deadlock on Sunday afternoon.
Jose Mourinho is a big fan of Marouane Fellaini and after subbing the big Belgian on for the stricken Paul Pogba, Fellaini repaid his manager’s faith by scoring the first goal against Basel.
Man Utd are, quite literally, a huge threat from set pieces and Fellaini can make the most of his size from dead-ball situations to score Sunday’s first goal at $11 with Bet365.

The Everton fans who went to Goodison Park for the game against Tottenham last weekend didn’t know where to start when analysing what went wrong.
They were lethargic going forwards, uncompetitive in midfield and very sloppy in defence. In short, Ronald Koeman must ensure his team are better in all departments or they will suffer a similar fate at Old Trafford.
Specifically, the Everton midfield cannot allow their opponents the sort of space and time on the ball that Spurs had while their defenders must not get bogged down in dealing with Lukaku or Man Utd will hurt them from wide positions.
