Everton v Manchester United: Odds, predictions, team news and stats

Everton return from the international break ten points worse off than when they entered it and keener than ever, therefore, to pick up points to avoid getting stuck in a relegation scrap.

Their first target is Manchester United, who have pipped Fulham and Luton in their last two Premier League outings and who will be hoping to work less hard for the points against another struggling side.

1st Half Result - Draw @ 6/5

Everton find themselves back in a relegation fight through no fault of their players, but encouraging form going into the international break means they should still be confident they can give their visitors a proper test at Goodison Park.

Seven points from their last three Premier League matches had got the Toffees pushing towards mid-table, before a ten-point hit for financial misdemeanours has seen them plunged right back into trouble.

Their form rather than the state of the table means they should be confident their current predicament won't expose them to the threat of relegation.

And they get an opportunity on Sunday to vent their anger on United, who may not have relegation issues to concern them, but who still look fragile.

This fixture comes at a bad time for United as well, just three days before they arrive in Istanbul for a daren't-lose showdown at Galatasaray with their Champions League future on the line.

They will get a working over in Istanbul and they can be pretty confident they will have to field some blows from Sean Dyche's rugged Everton, who aren't pretty on the eye but are exceptionally competitive.

This looks like it should be a really tight affair, one where the 90-minute draw looks a big player and the 45-minute stalemate even more alluring at 6/5.

Statistically alone, the case is a strong one. United have been level at half-time in four of their five away league games this term and all-square in each of their last three Champions League ties.

They have scored only four first-half goals and have been level at the interval in six of their 12 league matches, while Everton have gone in at half-time all-square in seven of theirs.

There is nothing between the teams in terms of goal difference - both are on minus three - and the goal threats offered by both clubs is patchy at best. Indeed, they also have an identical shots-on-target record - 4.8 per match.

Over 4.5 Everton shots on target @ 1/1

Everton's record at Goodison Park this season is poor but improving, and that resurgence can continue against United.

Dyche's men lost each of their first four home matches, scoring just once, but have hit back with a pair of 3-0 wins over Bournemouth and Burnley in the Premier League and League Cup respectively, as well as a 1-1 draw with Brighton.

During this recent upturn they have also won 1-0 at West Ham and 3-2 at Crystal Palace, and there's a positive outlook about them that was less visible earlier on in the campaign.

Having the likes of Dwight McNeil and Dominic Calvert-Lewin fit after injury lay-offs can only be a bonus, and the Toffees will offer a threat to a United side who are riding plenty of luck.

Back Everton to register over 4.5 shots on target in the match. They average 4.8 a game so far, which is up to 5.7 at home where results, as we have seen, are mixed at best.

Interestingly, only five teams in the league concede more shots away from home than United, who do leave themselves open as they chase games, something they are doing more often than not this term.

Bruno Fernandes over 1.5 tackles @ 4/5

Portuguese playmaker Bruno Fernandes may have a wand of a right foot and wonderful imagination, but he also knows how to leave a foot in, and that helps decide the third part of the Bet Builder.

Fernandes is 4/5 to make over 1.5 tackles, well within the range of a man who has made 28 tackles in 12 league appearances this season, the most of any United player.

Everton top the tackle count in the Premier League this season, which pretty much guarantees a fiery, feisty affair at Goodison where Fernandes will not shirk his defensive responsibilities.

Everton team news

Long-term absentees Andre Gomes and Dele Alli remain sidelined for the Toffees, but Seamus Coleman is close to being in contention after returning to full training.

Manchester United team news

Left-back Luke Shaw is fit but unlikely to be involved, while Christian Eriksen has joined Lisandro Martinez, Jonny Evans, Tyrell Malacia and Casemiro on the treatment table.

Goalkeeper Andre Onana and frontman Rasmus Hojlund are also doubts.
