Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Everton FC


Manchester United reserve left back Alex Telles had a reputation for scoring goals, but until yesterday, we hadn’t really seen too much of that. Filling in for the injured first choice LB Luke Shaw, Telles made the most of his rare starting assignment, finding the equalizer in last night’s 2-1 Champions League win over Villarreal.

It was a phenomenal goal, and a tide-turner in what was a must win for United. As we predicted, Cristiano Ronaldo provided the heroics to seal the deal. His Fergie Time scoring strike gave United the three points that they badly needed in the UCL competition.

With Shaw still questionable for Saturday, we’re predicting Telles stays in the first team; Ronaldo too. After all, you can’t drop Ronaldo for any game that’s meaningful.

Prediction: United 3, Everton 1

Under Solskjaer, United have done enough to let him keep his job, but disappointed enough to keep a large section of the fan base angry. It’s a results roller coaster, up and down, up and down, and that will continue here.
