Manchester United vs Everton Betting Tips
Here are our best tips for Sunday's match for which we have a range of other markets available:
United were completely outclassed by Juventus on Tuesday and they will be thankful the same quality will not be in front of them on Sunday afternoon.
That said, Everton have started to pick up momentum with successive wins against Fulham, Leicester and Crystal Palace, the last of which came with two goals in the final three minutes from substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun.
Last season, United won this fixture 4-0 which they followed with a 2-0 win at Goodison Park on New Year's Day but in the 2016-17 campaign both matches ended in 1-1 draws.
There is little to separate these two teams in terms of quality, league position or the expected goals data as the above graphic reveals so the first of our Manchester United vs Everton predictions is a draw at 11/4.
This weekend's best bets
If you're interested in accumulators or in-play betting, check out our regular betting columns:
First goalscorer tips
Theo Walcott has been Everton's most threatening player over the last 10 games in terms of chances but his last goal against United came five years ago.
We fancy Everton to score first at Old Trafford and think Richarlison could be the man to break the deadlock at 17/2.
The Brazilian scored four of his five goals for Watford away from home last season and three of his four goals have been on the road in the current campaign, the latest coming at Leicester where he opened the scoring.
Anytime goalscorer tips
Anthony Martial's confidence was sent sky high by his double against Chelsea which came hot on the heels of an equaliser in the comeback win against Newcastle.
The French attacker scored home and away against Everton last season and looks a solid pick from the anytime goalscorer odds at 19/10.

Where the game will be won or lost
Everton are starting to look like the real deal and have some excellent attacking options on the bench if their main strikeforce fails to deliver as they proved against Crystal Palace.
The Toffees have scored first in three of their last four away matches this season whereas United have fallen behind in their previous three in all competitions, although ironically they woke up on both occasions against Newcastle and Chelsea.
With statistics like that, the next choice for our Manchester United vs Everton tips is for the Blues to score first at 37/20.
Everton have been drawing at half-time in all four of their away games in the Premier League which is available at 6/5. A goalless draw at the break is 41/20 and 1-1 is 7/1, but instead we're opting for the first goal to be scored between 31-40 minutes at 13/2.
Marco Silva's side are both creative and vulnerable during that period as the graphic demonstrates, so we hope to see the net bulge at either end in that 10-minute spell.
Traders' Tips - View from the trading floor
Manchester United completed the double over Everton last season without conceding and they have shown more attacking intent in their last couple of games which could spell bad news for Marco Silva's men.
