JOE’s Premier League scorecast: Manchester United v Everton
The Red Devils will be hoping to string together consecutive Premier League victories for the first time this season when Everton visit Old Trafford for the early kick-off on Sunday.
JOE doesn’t expect United to have it all their way, as they’re missing 10 players through injury and Wayne Rooney through stupidity. United’s captain let himself and his teammates down last weekend when taking a shortcut through Steward Downing’s leg.
All is not bleak for United though as their new signings are showing signs of gelling and players are adapting more to Van Gaal’s methodology every week.
However, this weekend they face an Everton side who pulled a draw out of the fire against Liverpool last weekend and will be determined to get their own season on-track. John Stones has been moved back into the centre of defence and Romelu Lukaku is looking close to his best.
All signs point to a stalemate and JOE reckons a hard fought 1-1 is on the cards. Angel Di Maria has looked brilliant so far this season and we reckon he’ll open the scoring Sunday.
The 26-year old has already scored twice for Untied and will be amongst the top danger men on display in the Premier League this weekend. If you fancy a punt on this bet you can an enticing price of 45/1.
