Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
A spot in the FA Cup last 32 will be at stake when Manchester United and Everton face each other at Old Trafford on Friday evening. The Red Devils are on a six-game winning run in all competitions, and it is no wonder the odds for home triumph have been dropping. Both Fred and Elanga are pushing for a start, while Donny van de Beek has joined Sancho and Axel Tuanzebe in the recovery room.
Antony is a major doubt, but Anthony Martial should be fit for the FA Cup showdown. The Toffees, on the other hand, aim to recover from a heavy 4-1 loss to Brighton, but given Man Utd’s current form, we predict that the visiting side will return home empty-handed. All Nathan Patterson, Michael Keane, Andros Townsend, and James Garner are out of contention with injuries for the visiting side. In their last meeting in the FA Cup, back in 2016, Man Utd defeated Everton 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Bruno Fernandes):
Bruno Fernandes is a Portuguese footballer who used to play for Novara before joining Udinese in a co-ownership deal in the summer of 2013. The Portuguese midfielder scored his first goal for the club in a 3-3 draw with Napoli on 7 December, 2013.
Three years later he signed a deal with Sampdoria for a fee of €7 million. Fernandes moved to Sampdoria in order to replace Roberto who reinforced Villarreal. Soriano He played 33 games for the Zebrette in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign, scoring three goals for the club, while providing four assists for his teammates.

Highlighted Team (Everton):
Everton are one of the two Merseyside giants that were formed back in 1878, with the club holding a long-standing rivalry with Liverpool. Everton have participated in the English top flight for a record 113 seasons, with the team competing in the English second tier in just four campaigns.
The Toffees play their home matches at Goodison Park, the stadium that was opened in 1892. Everton have won the national championship nine times, with the team winning their last domestic trophy back in 1987.
The Toffees have clinched five FA Cup trophies as well and it has to be noted that a victory over Manchester United in the 1994/1995 FA Cup final helped the team win their last title in the prestigious competition. Everton and Liverpool face each other in the Merseyside derby and the clash between the two local rivals has been called the Merseyside derby since 1955.
In the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign Everton were hammered by Liverpool (0-4) at Anfield.
