Manchester United v Everton: Match Preview & Odds

Manchester United host Everton on Saturday in the Premier League’s early kick-off. The fixture could have real repercussions for both Manchester United’s bid for Champions League qualification and Everton’s battle to avoid the drop. As we look ahead to Manchester United v Everton, here at you’ll find the latest pre-match odds and free bets from popular bookmakers, Betfred.


Manchester United’s recent resurgence has ground to a halt again with the Red Devils recording back-to-back league defeats against Fulham (2-1) and Manchester City (3-1). Saturday’s hosts sit 6th in the Premier League table but with just 44 points from their 27 matches, Erik ten Hag’s side have fallen 11 points behind Everton in 4th.

There is now a little daylight between Everton and the bottom three after their points deduction was cut from ten to six points. The Toffees are 16th with 25 points from 27 matches, five points clear of Luton Town in 18th. However, Everton’s 3-1 defeat at home to West Ham United last weekend has extended their winless run to ten Premier League games.

Manchester United v Everton: head-to-head

Manchester United have had the upper hand in recent matches against Everton, particularly when playing at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have won four straight games against Everton and have lost just one of their past ten matches against Saturday's opponents. Everton have not won at Old Trafford since December 2013.

The reverse fixture at Goodison Park ended in a comfortable 3-0 win for Manchester United. A goal of the season contender from Alejandro Garnacho followed by second-half goals for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial sealed all three points for the visitors. In the corresponding fixture played at Old Trafford last season, goals in each half for Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial handed Manchester United a 2-0 win.

Betting tips

Marcus Rashford scored in the reverse fixture at Goodison Park in November and will take great confidence from his superb strike in the loss at Manchester City last weekend. The England international will lead the line again for Manchester United on Saturday and is an excellent choice at 6/4 to score at any time. Alternatively, Rashford is priced at 5/1 to score first.

Each of the past nine Premier League fixtures contested by Manchester United have produced over 2.5 match goals and this selection is priced at 8/13 on Saturday. The only clean sheet for or against the Red Devils during that run came in a 3-0 win against West Ham United. Both teams to score is decent value at the same 8/13.

Manchester United surrendered a half-time lead in last weekend’s Manchester derby as their recent susceptibility to conceding late goals continued. Nine of the past ten Premier League goals shipped by Erik ten Hag’s have come in the second half of matches. Everton are 11/4 to win the second half whilst Betfred are offering 21/20 on the second half being the highest-scoring half.
