Manchester United vs Everton Liverpool. Match of the 23rd round of the English Premier League championship. The meeting starts at 20:00 UTC.
The upcoming match this weekend in the English Premier League will be interesting. On Saturday, February 6, 2021, the 23rd round begins, during which many matches are to take place. Given the heat of passion at the top of the championship standings, each game, with the participation of top teams, is already a landmark event for the fans of this tournament. In this context, we are interested in the match in Manchester, where the local team Manchester United will compete with Everton.
The hosts of the match are in a desperate struggle for the championship title this season, so every upcoming game is worth its weight in gold for the team. We bring to your attention a prediction for this meeting. Let’s hope that our assumptions about the outcome of the match at Old Trafford are correct.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s players are determined this year. The team’s play cannot be called impeccable, but the current results of the team inspire optimism and hope. And the footballers, the head coach, and the huge army of fans want the team to win the Premier League championship. For a long time, the “Red Devils” have been absent from the elites of English football. This season so far promises great chances for success in this regard.
The “Mancunians” is still 2nd inline in the standings, behind the leader, fellow countrymen from the “Manchester City” club, by 3 points.
Given the fact that the “Red Devils” have one more game, the match against Everton is going to be decisive to some extent. As for the success of the team in the last official matches, there is no stability in the game of the “red devils”. For example, after a 3: 2 victory over Liverpool in a cup match, Solskjaer’s players lost 1: 2 to Sheffield United in the next game.
This was followed by a goalless draw against Arsenal. In the match of the 22nd round, the “Mankunians” won the Southampton team with a score of 9: 0.
The “Merseysides”, those who play in blue shirts, can get good results this season. We haven’t seen Everton at the top of the standings for a long time. To date, before the match in Manchester, Carlo Ancelotti’s charges have 36 points. With such a point balance, the team occupies the 6th inline in the standings. It is obvious that the team’s ambition this year is to get into the Europa League zone.
Despite such a modest score, Everton still has two games left. This gives the team some advantage over other teams. Will Ancelotti’s charges be able to make use of this advantage?
The results of the last matches of the Liverpool team are mixed. After winning 3-0 in the cup match against Sheffield Wednesday, there was a 1-1 draw against Leicester.
Obviously, this game took a lot of strength from the charges of Carlo Ancelotti, as they lost 0:2 in the next match against Magpies from Newcastle “Everton”. The result of the away game against Leeds with the victory of 2: 1 was a consolation.
Head to head statistics
In the framework of official tournaments and competitions, the teams of “Manchester United” and “Everton” have met 207 times. The overwhelming advantage in the number of victories is on the side of the “Mancunians” (91 vs. 69) In 47 matches, the matches with the participation of these teams ended in draws. In the first round match in Liverpool, Manchester United won 2:0.
Proceeding from the fact that both teams have their own plans for the upcoming match, the probability of victory of this or that team is high. There is also a possibility of a draw. Under these assumptions, despite how the upcoming match may end, the most optimal bet on the game is “Both teams will score”.
