Everton vs Manchester United: Will the Red Devils get stuck in sticky Toffee again?

everton v united

Facing Everton at Goodison Park has always turned out to be a bogey match for Manchester United in recent years. David Moyes was given his pink slip hours after he saw his United team fall to his former employers. Louis Van Gaal could do no better last season when he had to watch his players lose 3-0 to the Toffees in the same fixture. In fact, the Red Devils have lost on each of their last three visits to Goodison Park.

Thus, Everton have a habit of making life difficult for Manchester United at Goodison Park and will fancy their chances of doing so again amid an encouraging start to the season.

This season Louis van Gaal’s outfit were being touted as potential champions before being beaten 3-0 at Arsenal, while the Toffees are threatening to recapture the form which almost took them to the Champions League in 2013/14.

This makes for a smacker of a match and will have many neutrals glued to their television sets.

Who do you think will emerge victorious today? Will Everton become the only Premier League team ever  to have won 4 consecutive times against Manchester United? Or will the Red Devils step up to the challenge and show their mettle as contenders for the title this season? Or will it end as a stalemate?

Here’s what we think:

WSP Expert Prediction:

Everton FC will put Manchester United FC in a tangle. The first goal might come from Everton. We see bleak prospects for Manchester United for a large part of the game. A last moment upset is very much possible. All Manchester can do is save pride with a draw, or in a crazy moment, push in one more to go up and make our prediction go wrong. Still, we are going with Everton.
