Manchester United are looking to bounce back from last week’s humiliation when they visit Everton on Sunday. The Red Devils were trounced 6-3 by Manchester City last week and got back to winning ways with a 3-2 victory against Omonia Nicosia in the Europa League on Thursday.
But Erik ten Hag’s men will be out to make a statement by overcoming a Toffees team on a seven-game unbeaten run.
Everton vs Manchester United preview
Following a 1-0 win over Manchester United in April, Everton are looking to win consecutive Premier League games against the Red Devils for the first time since winning both games in the 2013-14 season.
Manchester United have won just one of their last seven Premier League matches against Everton (D4 L2), a 3-1 away win in November 2020. They had won five of their seven against the Toffees before this.
Everton have won their last two Premier League games, having won just one of their previous 10. They last won three in a row in March 2021 under Carlo Ancelotti.
Manchester United have lost eight of their last 10 Premier League away games (W2), keeping a clean sheet in both victories. However, the Red Devils scored as many goals in their 6-3 defeat against Man City last time out as they had in their previous eight away league games combined.
Everton are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games (W2 D4). They last had a longer run in November/December 2017 (7 games), while they last had a longer run under a single manager between December 2016 and February 2017 (9 under Ronald Koeman).

Manchester United might have struggled against Manchester City but in all fairness, their momentum had been considerably broken due to the three-week break. They attacked well against Omonia Nicosia in midweek.
Although Everton will be a much more difficult side to break down than the Cypriot outfit, Manchester United have the firepower to score a few goals. We expect the Red Devils to eke out a narrow win at Goodison Park.
