Gameweek 7 of the Premier League is upon us. Huzzah! This week’s offering gives us the age-old match up between Manchester United and Everton, two sides who have been in the Premier League since it’s inception.
United will be looking to make a statement after a loss to Aston Villa last weekend, preferably a statement that is on the pitch and not an essay on the Instagram of Bruno Fernandes.
Everton will be looking to carry on from their win over Norwich last weekend against a side with significantly more talent and depth, but whose manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under huge pressure to get better performances out of his expensively assembled squad.
Saturday 12.30pm: Man United v Everton
BT Sport 1
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will continue to do what he does best (and the bare minimum to keep his job). Unfortunately for him, after defeat to Villa last weekend at home and only just scraping past Villarreal on Wednesday, the bare minimum requires a home win and a more convincing showing on Saturday lunchtime.
They are coming up against an Everton outfit who just scraped a win against struggling Norwich and who got tanked by Aston Villa the week prior. United should have enough to get the three points here.
Let’s be honest, Cristiano Ronaldo is a goal machine! He’s bagged himself five goals in his six appearances, which includes his late winner against Villarreal, since his momentous return to Old Trafford.
He’s singlehandedly keeping Solskjaer in the job right now in a side where nobody else seems like they want to play at all – that was especially seen in Bruno’s penalty gaffe last weekend. I’d hope to see Ronaldo assume spot kick duties now, provided Jurgen Klopp doesn’t go and complain about United’s penalty numbers again…
Demarai Gray has been huge for Everton so far this season. He has stepped up in a major way and is now a key player for Rafa Benitez’s men – especially with both Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin sidelined through injury. He is the source of creativity in this Everton side now, and he has as many Premier League goals this season in six appearances as Ronaldo himself. Impressive, eh? Don’t be shocked if he tests the palms of David de Gea on Saturday.
Yerry Mina is grand at centre back, but is going to be put on absolute strings this weekend coming up against United’s pick-your-poison style of attack. Both Mina and former United academy talent Michael Keane are going to be under huge pressure to protect Jordan Pickford too, as England’s number one is just back after a shoulder injury and faced no significant threat against Norwich. Expect Yerry Mina to get on the wrong side of the referee here.
Everton are yet to have less than four corners in a game this season. Over 2.5 should be achievable for this reason. In August, during a pre-season friendly Man United and Everton played, we saw The Toffees get three corners and I’d feel very confident about this one landing.
Man United To Win
Cristiano Ronaldo To Score Anytime
Demarai Gray To Have 1 Or More Shots On Target
Yerry Mina To Be Carded
Over 2.5 Away Corners
