Manchester United at Everton FC Starting XI Predictions


It’s very crowded in the middle and just above the middle in the Premier League table right now. You have a multitude of teams competing for UEL and UCL qualification next season, and should the Manchester City ban be upheld upon appeal, then you have another slot open and hence more teams with a chance to get into the tournaments.

Two of these such teams, Manchester United and Everton, will meet at Goodison Park on Sunday. Let’s take a look at who both sides may select in their first team in this crunch clash.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, Matic; Greenwood, Fernandes, James; Ighalo

Everton Starting XI Prediction:
Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Holgate, Digne; Iwobi, Gomes, Delph, Sigurdsson; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin

Prediction: Everton 1, United 1

All points are needed right now, on both sides, but I expect this one to end in stalemate, and they’ll split the spoils.
