Phil Jagielka’s injury-time screamer earned Everton a point in last weekend’s Merseyside derby but it was an otherwise lacklustre performance from the Toffees, particularly going forward and boss Roberto Martinez will be acutely aware that his team needs to improve if they are going to get anything from their trip to Old Trafford.
Indeed, bookies believe hosts Manchester United are set to collect a maximum haul, Stan James installing them as 8/11 favourites and BetVictor post 4/1 against the Blues giving their campaign a much-needed boost. William Hill meanwhile, quote a stalemate at 3/1 and as Louis van Gaal’s team have hardly been convincing this term, that’s a price that might prove popular.
BetVictor meanwhile offer a score draw at an enticing 4/1, it’s 7/1 courtesy of Paddy Power for the contest to finish one-each and it’s 6/1 (bet365) for scores to be level at both the interval and the final whistle.
