08/05/2023: Daily Predictions: English Premier League: Manchester United vs Everton

Champions League hopefuls Manchester United will look to strengthen their hold within the top four as they prepare to host relegation candidates Everton in a Premier League game.

Form Guide

After a recent blip in their league form, Manchester United returned to winning ways in their last game, recording a 1-0 win over Brentford. United have won just one out of their last four league games, losing two in that sequence (against Newcastle and Liverpool).

Everton are in a bit of higher spirits now. They are unbeaten in four games which will give them the confidence that they can do what it takes to avoid the drop. They are 16th in the league with 27 points after 29 games and only outside the relegation zone on goal difference though. Every point from here on for the Toffees will be vital.

Head To Head

Their form in all competitions though has been good as they have won three out of their last four games.
