Attempting to predict the result of this match if you are thinking of placing some money on who you think is going to win shouldn’t be too difficult. Everton have not beaten Manchester United at home or away for nearly a decade and the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are in scintillating form while David Moyes’ charges have yet to get their season really up and running will surely mean that this record continues. Everton lost their main playmaker and free kick taker on the last day of the transfer window when Arsenal signed Mikel Arteta for £10 million and because the transfer occurred at the last minute, Moyes had no time to replace him. He now has £10 million burning a hole in his pocket with no chance to invest until January and a gaping hole in the middle of his midfield.
I would consequently put my money on a Manchester United victory if I were you. Rooney was left out of the match against Liverpool the week before last because Ferguson was concerned about the player’s mental fragility following his sending off against Montenegro for England along with his father’s arrest for betting irregularities, but he returned in midweek for their Champions League match in Bucharest where he scored the only two goals of the game from the penalty spot and United fans will be hoping that he can continue his run of goal scoring form in the Manchester derby this weekend followed by the game away at Goodison Park. Hernandez has also returned from the concussion that kept him out of the beginning of this campaign to continue his goal scoring feats for the reigning Champions while Tom Cleverley will also return from a broken ankle in time for this match. I would predict a Manchester United victory by two or three goals.
If you are planning on taking my advice and laying some money on a Manchester United victory in this game then I would also suggest that you get maximum value from your bet by combining it in a multiplier with a few bets on other sports, for example you could study the cricket odds for England’s upcoming one-day series. Another option might be to study the Cheltenham Open meeting odds and combine a wager on a horse with your bet on a United victory. By creating a multiplier in this manner you stand to make a pretty penny should all of your predictions prove correct.
