Everton v Manchester United Predictions and Preview
Everton's impressive run of three Premier League wins over Chelsea, West Ham and Arsenal, came to an end with a whimper at Craven Cottage. Silva will be demanding a reaction from his players ahead of the visit of United to Merseyside, however they will have to shake off their Jekyll and Hyde tag if they want to push their top seven hopes.
United will be wounded from their Champions League exit at the hands of Barcelona in midweek, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows their hopes of qualifying for next season's competition are hanging by a thread. The Red Devils are down in sixth place in the table, with five games to go this season, however they have a tougher run in of games than rivals Chelsea and Arsenal.
Both teams still have plenty to play for between now and the end of season, and that should make for an interesting clash in this one - with a draw priced at 5/2. Everton have scored in four of their last five Premier League games, with United scoring in their last three, meaning there should be goals in this clash - with an over 1.5 total goals scored bet available at 2/7.
A 1-1 draw at 6/1
Both sides are under pressure not to lose this one, with Everton chasing the Europa League and United after a top four finish in the coming weeks both sides will be looking to contain and hit on the counter attack at Goodison this weekend.
Paul Pogba to score anytime at 6/1
The French international was poor the Nou Camp in midweek, and his manager will be demanding a response from his star midfielder. He netted twice in the last league game, the 2-1 in over Wolves, and he will remain on spot kick duty for Solskjaer's side.
