Manchester United vs Everton Prediction & Match Preview

Manchester United vs Everton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.

Manchester United will be looking to build on a splendid 9-0 win over Southampton when they take on Everton in the Premier League round 23. 

The Red Devils are still three points behind league leaders and their local rivals Manchester City in the standings, but the historical triumph over the Saints undisputedly gave them a confidence boost. 

Edinson Cavani should recover in time to face Everton, meaning that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to have a full squad to choose from.

The Toffees, on the other hand, did well to beat Leeds United on the road, with the team moving closer to the Europa League berth. 

Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the Red Devils, who are brimming with confidence following the crushing over Southampton. 

Both Allan and Gbamin are likely to miss the Old Trafford clash with injuries.

Team News:

Solskjaer has played down concerns over the fitness of Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw, both of whom were taken off at half time against Southampton.

Shaw's withdrawal was more precautionary than Cavani's, with the Uruguayan striker suffering a knock to his ankle which will be monitored ahead of this match.

Cavani is expected to be available if needed, but Martial's brace off the bench - coupled with a good record against Everton which has seen him directly involved in nine goals from 11 meetings - could be enough for him to earn his 250th Man United appearance from the start anyway.

Phil Jones is United's only confirmed absentee, so Solskjaer must decide whether to stick with a similar starting XI to the one which beat Southampton so convincingly, or offer recalls to the likes of Paul Pogba.

Ancelotti is hopeful that Jordan Pickford will have recovered from the rib injury which kept him out of the Leeds game in time for this match.

The trip to Old Trafford is expected to come just too soon for Allan, though, while Jean-Philippe Gbamin is a long-term absentee.

James Rodriguez was an unused sub against Leeds and so should come back into the starting XI for this match, but former Man United forward Joshua King, who was also heavily linked with a return to Old Trafford last summer, will likely have to wait for his full Everton debut.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba; Martial

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Holgate, Mina, Keane, Digne; Doucoure, Sigurdsson; Iwobi, Rodriguez, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin
