Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After failing to beat Southampton in their last game in 2017, Manchester United will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they face Everton at Goodison Park. The Red Devils shared the spoils with their rivals in previous three league fixtures and, no doubt, fans are hungry for a win. Jose Mourinho’s men have slim chances of winning the Premier League trophy, but they certainly do not want to give up on their title dream. Romelu Lukaku has been struggling to find his goal-scoring touch of late, but the Belgian attacker is likely to lead the line for Man Utd against his former club. Everton suffered a 2-1 loss to Bournemouth at the weekend, with the Cherries putting an end to their seven-game winless run in the national championship. A close encounter is on the cards and we predict the two sides are going to share the spoils at Goodison Park.

Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years ManchesterUnited have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
