It’s been another busy week for Manchester United, with the Red Devils having to dust themselves down after a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa before clashing with Villarreal in the Champions League and then comes this potentially tricky north-west encounter.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure to deliver results at Old Trafford and this is a must-win game for United if they are to stay in the Premier League title hunt this season, with Cristiano Ronaldo not having many chances last weekend although you would assume he will continue to lead the line.

Rafael Benitez will relish the chance to try and get something from this clash and much depends on how Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure can perform in the midfield engine room, with plenty needed from Jordan Pickford who will operate behind the preferred central defensive pairing of Yerry Mina and Michael Keane.

We think you can go with Everton +1 on the Asian Handicap as this provides you with a bit of insurance if they lose by a single goal. While Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison might not be available, Salomon Rondon is improving fitness-wise and there is plenty to like about the performance level of Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray.

Everton +1
