Everton vs Manchester United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 9 October 2022
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
When Manchester United plays Everton in a Premier League match on Sunday at Goodison Park, they will want to establish their dominance.
When Everton plays host to Manchester United at Goodison Park, they’ll try to make things worse for the Red Devils.
The Toffees are on a six-match Premier League winning streak and will be targeting a significant defeat this weekend.
Last week, Manchester City humiliated Manchester United, ending their four-match winning streak in the Premier League.
Erling Haaland and Phil Foden both scored a hat-trick for Manchester City.
Antony did succeed in scoring a magnificent curling goal, while Anthony Martial scored a late brace to give the visiting team some solace.
Erik ten Hag, however, needs a lot of work, and the current Manchester United team is still unable to threaten City’s monopoly, as evidenced by the performance.
Everton, on the other side, narrowly avoided relegation last year.
However, they have looked strong this year, particularly in the back.
Conor Coady and James Tarkowski’s early arrival has been a huge success since they have both worked relentlessly to close the gap in the Toffees’ backline despite their alarming 66 goals conceded previous season.
Although goals have been hard to come by, defensive rigidity has always been the foundation for a successful season.
Everton has succeeded in putting their ideology into practice after eight games, giving up the fewest goals in the Premier League.
The Red Devils battled Omonia Nicosia to open the goal face before winning in the end. Additionally, Manchester United will face some formidable obstacles against Everton’s newly constructed defense.
It will be interesting to see if the Red Devils have taken their four-match winning streak for granted or if they intend to use Sunday’s game to restart their Premier League campaign.
The euworld examines the interaction in further detail.
Everton vs Manchester United Head to head :
- The latest encounter ended in a 1-0 win for Everton.
- Two of the previous four clashes had four or more goals.
- The visitors kept a clean sheet at this stadium just once in the past four years.
- The guests scored two or more goals in three of the preceding six meetings at this ground.
Everton vs Manchester United Prediction :
Manchester United will have their hands difficult defending against Conor Coady and company given Everton’s recent results that highlight their defensive prowess.
However, the Toffees have also failed to put up a strong offensive performance.
Manchester United’s attack might therefore be a serious threat to them.
The euworld foresees a largely competitive match that will end with Manchester United winning at Goodison Park by a score of 1-0.
Everton vs Manchester United Team News :
Due to injuries, Everton will still be without defenders Ben Godfrey, Nathan Patterson, Mason Holgate, and Yerry Mina, however the latter two have resumed training and may be available to play Tottenham Hotspur the following weekend.
After suffering a ligament injury in August, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is once again in the running for a starting spot, according to Lampard, but he is unlikely to be included right away given Neal Maupay’s promising start to his Everton career.
Given Alex Iwobi’s impressive play in a more central position and the fact that Abdoulaye Doucoure played on the bench against Southampton last weekend, it may be difficult for him to reclaim his spot in the lineup.
However, Anthony Gordon, who played only as a substitute during the victory, should start.
While Man United will be missing club captain Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Donny van de Beek due to injuries, Raphael Varane is still vying to start with Lisandro Martinez at the center of the defense.
The France international left the game against Man City five minutes before halftime due to an ankle injury, and Victor Lindelof was ready to step in if needed.
Tyrell Malacia and Jadon Sancho may lose their spots in the starting XI to Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial at the weekend after both were hooked at halftime of their midweek match against Omonia.
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Coady, Tarkowski, Mykolenko; Onana, Gueye, Iwobi; Gordon, Maupay, Gray
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; McTominay, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
