- Bet United To Win & BTTS at 5/2 with Bet365
- Back Anthony Martial To Score First at 11/2 with William Hill
The curious case of Manchester United. The Red Devils sit 10th in the table after amassing 14 points from nine games, though managing just four wins as they prepare to host Everton this Sunday.
They haven’t been terrible in most of their games and did come very close to ending Chelsea’s unbeaten run last weekend, when coming from behind to lead 2-1 - before Ross Barkley scored at the death and sparked a riot on the touchlines.
Jose Mourinho has been leading the infamous Premier League Sack Race all season, but perhaps there’s life in the old dog yet and his United team are a 3/4 chance with William Hill to win this north-west battle against the Toffees.
It should be noted that the Red Devils come into this match off the back of a tough Champions League assignment against Juventus, although a clash at Old Trafford on a Tuesday night at least means plenty of recovery time.
However, Everton will still regard this as a good time to be clashing with United and they’re a point better off in the current Premier League standings, following a run of three consecutive victories, which suggests Marco Silva is getting things right at Goodison Park.
BetVictor offer a meaty 9/2 that the Merseyside team claim four on the bounce by landing the spoils in Manchester and Everton will certainly be attack-minded, even if they seem to lack a really good central striker, with Richarlison potentially the man to operate furthest forward.
The draw is 11/4 with Bet365, Wolves having been good enough to land a point at Old Trafford earlier this season, with Everton's Jordan Pickford hoping to follow up that excellent clean sheet against Crystal Palace which saw the England stopper save a penalty.
However, Everton were slightly fortunate to beat the Eagles and we’re wondering if that 3-2 win for United against Newcastle might act as the catalyst for an unbeaten run which could see them claim the spoils in this game.
Anthony Martial is starting to show why the club paid the big bucks to recruit the Frenchman and William Hill have 11/2 that he scores the opening goal of this game, while Romelu Lukaku is likely to be a popular bet at William Hill’s 4/1 to break the deadlock against a club for whom he used to successfully operate.
Given United’s defensive issues this term, we’d always prefer to take them to win the game and both teams to score and thankfully bet365 are on hand to supply 5/2 that this happens at on Sunday, with wins against Leicester and Newcastle occurring in this way.
Indeed, both sides seem to be suffering the inability to keep clean sheets and both teams finding the net is on offer at 20/23 with betfair, with an entertaining game potentially in store at Old Trafford.
A different way of approaching a potential goalfest is backing Over 2.5 Goals at 10/11 with bet365, with the same bookmaker offering odds of 11/5 that there are Over 3.5 Goals but will Mourinho manage to steer clear of the headlines for one game?
