Manchester United v Everton
Live on Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD
Manchester United are in desperate need of a win as they attempt to close the gap on fourth-place rivals Manchester City in the race for a top four finish in the Premier League and a Champions League spot.
The Red Devils are just a point behind the Citizens in the table, but Manuel Pellegrini’s side has the chance to stretch that lead on Saturday when they visit Bournemouth.
Louis van Gaal’s side recorded a 1-0 win at bitter-rivals City last time out, with teenager Marcus Rashford grabbing the only goal of the game. The home side can be backed for victory in this clash at odds of 11/10 with Ladbrokes.
Youngster Rashford may prove to be a decent anytime scorer. He can be backed at odds of 15/8 with Bet365.
Everton’s Premier League campaign is rather drifting towards a disappointing finish, with defensive errors ruining the Toffees chances of finishing in the top four or six. Everton have suffered consecutive defeats in the Premier League, but both of those came at home.
However their away form has been pretty good this season, as Roberto Martinez’s side have suffered just one league defeat on their travels.
Striker Romelu Lukaku has been in outstanding form this season, finding the net 18 times in the English top-flight. The Belgian international is odds of 5/1 at Paddy Power to open the scoring in this clash.
The draw in this clash can bet backed at odds of 5/2 at Bet365.
Big Tip Everton have proven to be a far better team on their travels, but have very little to play for in the league, so I think United will prevail in this clash at odds of 11/10 with Ladbrokes.
