Premier League Match Preview: Everton vs Manchester United

Everton’s five-game unbeaten streak came to an end last weekend following a dramatic 3-2 defeat to Arsenal. Now they face Manchester United before playing Chelsea and Liverpool.

Manchester United are unbeaten in seven in all competitions. They have scored 18 goals in that time and conceded only one. They start the weekend three points off fourth place.

Trips to Goodison Park tend to be difficult for United. They lost 4-0 the last time the two sides met on Merseyside and it will be a good test to see where United are currently at.

A victory for United would signal they are ready to finally take fourth place from Chelsea whereas a set-back would not a surprise.
