Sunday at Goodison Park, as Everton host Man U in the Premier League.

Man U currently sit in sixth place as they travel to eleventh placed Everton.

This season’s Premier League campaign, has so far seen Everton achieve 10 points

Only a positive result will be acceptable for Frank Lampard’s men, following their recent away defeat at the hands of Southampton in their last match.

Also, with four draws in six games, Everton need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With an eleventh position in the league and 2 wins, 2 losses and 4 draws, they currently have 10 points in the League having won two games, drawn four meetings, and lost two matches.

Everton have won one game, drawn two matches, and lost one game of their four League matches at home this season.

A win in this fixture would take Everton’s points to 13 in the League.

A solid defensive team

Defence begins with attack and Everton have defended well as a team, borne out by conceding seven goals in their previous fixtures. Every player has contributed to them delivering a solid defensive display this Premier League season. Everton will be concerned at having only scored seven goals so far this season. This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Anthony Gordon (2), Dwight McNeil (1), and Demarai Gray (1).

Going into Sunday’s game, Frank Lampard without six of his players, due to illness or injury.

Manchester United’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 12 points this season

Can Man U make it three out of three, having turned over Manchester City 6-3 and Arsenal 3-1 in their last two games?

Also, Man U keep finding ways to win, having secured four victories in their last five games is astonishing this season. They currently stand sixth in the League, with 12 points for a total of 4 wins, 3 losses and 0 draws having won four meetings and lost three matches.

Man U will travel to Everton with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two victories and two defeats.

Victory for Manchester United would take their points tally to 15 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Man U, in terms of goals scored (11). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Marcus Rashford (3), Anthony Martial (2), and Antony (2). Man U have shown a very poor defensive performance, having conceded 14 goals in their previous matches.

Erik ten Hag could be missing up to three of their players through injury or illness for the game on Sunday.

April 2022 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and The Toffees took all three points winning 1-0.
