Manchester United face rivals Everton on Saturday in a match both sides will be desperate to win to get their season back on track.

Manchester United have showed decent form in January and February but have lost their last two in the Premier League, against Fulham and Manchester City.

Sutton’s prediction for the match is a 2-1 win to United . You will get odds around 7.80 on that betting tips if you are into betting on Premier League football.

“Everton have been in woeful form for a while now, but I still can’t say I am totally convinced Manchester United will beat them,” BBC Sport football expert Chris Sutton said.

“Sean Dyche’s side gave United a decent game at Goodison Park in November, despite losing 3-0, and I feel like the score will be a lot closer this time.

“I am really tempted to go for a draw but I just know United will somehow nick another spawny win, so that is what I am going with.

“There were some people out there who gave them credit for hanging on for a long time against Manchester City last Sunday but I was not impressed.

“There is no disputing how good Marcus Rashford’s goal was to give United the lead, but the game was a mismatch and they are so far behind City – the two teams are worlds apart.

“Whether United do win this game or not probably comes down to whether striker Rasmus Hojlund is fit.

“If he does make it back from injury, it gives them a focal point in attack. Without him, we saw what happened to United last time out at Old Trafford when they lost to Fulham.”
