CHRIS SUTTON’S PREDICTION

Everton weren’t at their finest in opposition to Southampton final trip however they nonetheless received the win and I see some actually good indicators once I watch Frank Lampard’s facet.

They do not concede many targets – seven in eight league matches, which is the most effective defensive file within the high flight – and which means they’re all the time within the sport despite the fact that they do not create many probabilities.

Manchester United seemed shell-shocked at instances throughout final weekend’s Manchester derby however Metropolis can do this to anybody, and I nonetheless assume United have made some progress below Erik ten Hag previously few weeks.

I by no means thought they’d cracked it after these 4 wins on the bounce between August and September. Equally, I do not assume they’re in disaster simply because a workforce pretty much as good as Metropolis took them aside – they’re someplace in between.

I’m anticipating Everton to be fairly ferocious in the best way they assault United, particularly below the lights at Goodison Park, however I’m pondering the factors are going to be shared.

Prediction: 1-1
