Everton hosts Manchester United at the Goodison Park in a match from the 8th round of the Premier League. This shall be a pretty good game, so let’s preview it right now.
Everton were leaders in the Premier League, but lately they are facing some difficulties. Carlo Ancelotti’s team won just one point in its last three matches, so now the Toffees are 4th in the standings with 13 points. It’d be curious to see if they can revive their performances or maybe they will be overtaken in the Top 4 soon.
Last week Everton suffered a second consecutive loss in the Premier League. The Blues traveled to face Newcastle United, but the Magpies took a 2-1 win at the St. James’ Park. Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s goal for Everton was not enough for even a point.
Most likely Carlo Ancelotti will try to shake things up with some changes in the line-up. Players such as Alex Iwobi and Bernard could find themselves in the starting eleven.
Manchester United are showing two different faces since the beginning of the season. The Red Devils are doing pretty well in the Champions League, but they are more shaky in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team won just one of the last four matches which is building some pressure around the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
At this moment United are 15th in the Premier League standings with just 7 points, but they are also with a game in hand compared to most of hte other teams.
That’s our preview for the Premier League derby between Everton and Manchester United on Saturday. The visitors have a game in the Champions League during the week, so maybe Solskjaer is going to rotate the line-up a little bit and refresh the squad. It’s going to be a tough challenge for the visitors, there’s no doubt about this.
