Everton vs Manchester United

Everton’s campaign started controversially with the appointment of Rafael Benitez. The Spaniard’s reign lasted just half the season, with the former Liverpool boss leaving the Toffees languishing in the bottom half. Frank Lampard replaced Benitez in January and has since overseen a tough period for Everton.

The Merseyside giants are only a point ahead of 18th-placed Burnley following the 2-1 defeat to the Clarets earlier this week. Like the hosts, Manchester United’s season can be chalked off as underwhelming, to say the least. The Red Devils began the campaign with hopes of possibly challenging for the Premier League title.

But things have gone horribly wrong for Manchester United, with interim boss Ralf Rangnick unable to steady the ship, despite overseeing just three defeats in 21 games. The poor run of results has left United seventh on the table, albeit within touching distance of a top-four spot.

Everton came from a goal down to hold Manchester United to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture, with Andros Townsend’s 65th-minute strike cancelling Anthony Martial’s 43rd-minute opener.


Everton have won just one of their last 13 Premier League meetings with Manchester United (D6 L6), beating them 4-0 in April 2019 under Marco Silva. Manchester United won this exact fixture 3-1 last season. The Red Devils have not won consecutive away league games against Everton since a run of three between August 2005 and September 2007.


Only the three promoted sides have lost more Premier League home games than Everton this season (7). However, the Toffees are looking for consecutive home league wins for the first time since September.


Since Ralf Rangnick’s first Premier League match in charge of Manchester United on December 5th, only Manchester City and Liverpool (one each) have lost fewer Premier League games than the Red Devils (two in 16 games). By contrast, Manchester United lost seven of their final 16 league games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.


Everton XI: Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Mykolenko; Delph, Allan, Iwobi; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Gordon.

Man United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles; Matic, Fred; Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford, Ronaldo.
