Everton vs Man United predictions and betting : Recent form
Everton did get off to a great start to this season with back to back wins against quality teams that ensured them a top spot in the table. They shocked Spurs in the opener and secured easy victories against West Brom, Crystal Palace and Brighton.
After the brief break due to international fixtures, they put up a mighty challenge against the defending champions Liverpool which ended in a 2-2 draw. But from then on, their campaign has taken a hit with back to back defeats against Southampton and Newcastle United dropping them to 3rd place in the table. To keep things running, it is important for the side to put up a solid performance over the weekend.
Manchester United have had contrasting performances in the recent outings. They have been dominant and have stuck to their plans against quality teams like PSG and RB Leipzig in the UCL but haven’t shown the same quality in the premier league. This is quite evident when we look at how their campaign in England has been.
They started off with a loss against Crystal Palace but found their way to beat Brighton next week. They had a horrible day against Spurs and were defeated with a 6-1 score line. They emerged stronger against New Castle United but lacked intent against Chelsea at home.
Last night, they conceded a penalty to their arch rivals Arsenal which meant that they are struggling in 15th place after 6 games. The only way to get out of this mess is to start winning games from now on.

Everton vs Man United predictions and betting : Offensive and defensive stats
The Manchester United would want to switch back to their 4-1-4-1 formation this weekend whereas Everton would field 4-3-2-1 combination to counter attack the giants.
The Everton attack would probably be led by James Rodriguez after the Colombian striker is expected to return against the red devils.
Rodriguez has scored 3 goals and involved in 3 assists in 6 outings so far. He has been a trump card for the side who has 86.1% pass rate along with 2.3 shots on target and 2.8 key passes per game so far. He will be accompanied by Calvert-Lewin who has been in hot form with 8 goals in 7 games and has 72% pass success.
Apart from this, he also enjoys 3.3 tackles and 0.4 dribbles per game so far. This duo will be accompanied by Andre Gomes who is yet to make a significant impact but will have to up his game on Saturday.
The Manchester United attack didn’t look as sharp as it looked against RB Leipzig in that UCL game. Anthony Martial has strengthened their attack by many folds but hasn’t really created any impact so far. Mason Greenwood would probably continue in place of him who has 3 goals in 8 games and has some excellent passing and finishing skills.
Bruno Fernandes has been a quality attacking midfielder who has 79.3% pass success and is very strong in creating chances. He has 4 assists,5 goals,2.8 shots per target, 3 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game so far.
Marcus Rashford is an important element who will be key in creating chances and netting in crucial moments. He has 8 goals along with 82.6% pass success in 12 games and has been their prime match winner recently.
Manchester United’s defense has been a major concern for the side after poor performances in the recent outings.
The trio of Maguire, Shaw and Lindelof will have to do a neat job in order to prevent Everton from scoring. Maguire has been decent in aerial duels and interceptions but has often shown his weakness in tackling. The defender has 88.2% pass success, 3.6 aerials won per game along with 0.3 tackles and 1.6 interceptions per match.
The Swedish defender Victor Lindelof will have to step up in the coming days but has a 91.9% pass success and has been excellent in aerial duels with 1.4 aerials won per match and an astounding 3.4 clears per game.
Luke Shaw who plays as the center back has lacked discipline but is often involved in key passes. He enjoys 81.9% pass success and 1.9 clears per game so far. The Everton defense has the services of Nkounkou, Mina, Keane and Kenny.
Yerry Mina who plays as the center back is a regular in the side with 92.3% pass success and a brace against Brighton last month. The defensive numbers look astounding with 0.4 tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 4 clears per game so far.
Michael Keane is also a versatile player who has 92.6% pass completion rate along with 1.3 interceptions and 4.3 clears per game. Surprisingly, he has also scored four times in the last 10 games that gives enough for Everton to play with.
