Man Utd v Everton Betting Tips: Over 2.5 In Vital Home Tie

Quick Tips

It was looking positive for Manchester United, but Juventus’ knock back midweek has set the Red Devils back as they prepare to face Everton in the Premier League this Sunday.

After their performances against Newcastle and Chelsea, Manchester United appeared back on track, put that 1-0 loss against Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday, puts them in the same, lost position they have found themselves in for the majority of this season.

José Mourinho is still under pressure to succeed, and his reputation is now receiving a game-by-game analysis over whether he should remain in his job. The scoreline wasn’t the problem against Massimiliano Allegri’s side, it was the lacklustre and uninspiring display, barely creating anything of note, or anything to worry Juventus’ defence.

This game, against Everton, poses a similar threat. If Manchester United fail to win at home again, then even more pressure will be lumped on the board to make the decision to relieve the Portuguese manager of his duties.

Everton, on the other hand, would welcome any sort of a result. Having won only one game away from four opportunities this season, Marco Silva will be eager to increase that record against an incredibly vulnerable Man United side bereft of confidence. Here are Liam Canning’s betting tips for Manchester United v Everton:

A Bet That Keeps On Giving

In Manchester United’s last three Premier League games, this bet has come in. Such is United’s style of play at the moment, they need to concede a goal in order to get on the front foot and actually start playing the way they should be from kick-off; they had to stage comebacks against the Magpies and the Blues to record a result in their last two league fixtures.

Mourinho might have once been a master of creating and managing robust defences, but this current United side have conceded 16 goals in just nine matches - and found the back of the net on one less occasion, leaving them in 10th place. Everton are two places above them, conceding four less, but scoring the same number of goals.

BetVictor have priced over 2.5 goals in this Sunday afternoon kick-off at an enticing 4/5, with Everton scoring at least two goals in their last three league games. This selection is certainly one to consider.

Silva has not had the easiest start to this Premier League campaign, but he is beginning to become known in England for his understanding of when to substitute his players and bring on fresh legs.

Against Crystal Palace, all three of the Portuguese’s changes influenced the game and either scored or assisted; it turned the game in the Toffees’ favour, and Silva will be hoping for the same impact against United.

Generous BTTS Bet

Manchester United have endured difficult times in suppressing forwards from scoring against them this season. After finishing second in the league last season, it was expected that Mourinho’s Reds would kick on and challenge for the title, but that is a long way off based on current performances.

The Red Devils have conceded at least two goals in their last three Premier League matches, reinforcing Mourinho’s plea of wanting a new central defender. Although Luke Shaw has stepped up to the plate this season, United have struggled to keep clean sheets and have only managed to keep one all season in the league.

When you then consider that Everton have been involved in eight games this season, from 11 in all competitions, that has seen both sides score, William Hill's offer of both teams to score (yes) at 8/11 begins to look very favourable.

Will Mina Play?

Everton's attack might be flowing well with the likes of Gylfi Sigurðsson and Richarlison causing damage, but their newly-formed defence is still coming to grips with either their teammates or the adaptation to English football.

Lucas Digne has been brought in at left back, which looks a very smart acquisition. The former Barcelona understudy to Jordi Alba has been a fantastic attacking threat down the left-hand side, but he can become complacent and abandon his duties defensively, leaving gaps in behind Everton’s midfield for the opposition to exploit.

Yerry Mina, signed on-loan from Barcelona, is yet to make an appearance for the Toffees due to injury problems, but after making the bench against the Eagles last week, Silva might be inclined to throw him in the deep end at Old Trafford. The Colombian international looked adept when coming up against England at the World Cup, in which he scored a late equaliser from a corner.

Everton Return = Lukaku Ignited

Romelu Lukaku’s goal drought has been well-documented and, although he is still scoring for Belgium, United’s number nine is struggling to make an impact under Mourinho on a consistent basis. The striker’s last goal came against Watford in mid-September, while he hasn’t scored at Old Trafford since the end of March. It is certainly worrying times for the Belgian.

However, all good centre forwards find a way to break a drought, one way or another and Lukaku’s time will come. In all fairness to the former Everton player, his teammates have failed to provide passing lanes off him and leave him isolated up front, expecting the impossible.

Lukaku had a number of prolific years at Everton before making the move to Manchester United and if there is one game that is going to rekindle his scoring ways, it will be this one. Lukaku’s still getting in advantageous positions in-and-around the area, he just needs a stroke of lucky to guide the ball into the net.

With Bet365, Lukaku is priced at 13/10 to score during the 90 minutes, while if you are feeling more confident in the Belgium all-time top scorer, Bet365 also place him at 7/1 to score two or more goals.
