Manchester United Run of Form
The Red Devils are on a splendid run that has seen them win all six of their last domestic games. A 3-1 slip-up against Aston Villa is the only black mark on the record for a team that is flying high under the stewardship of Erik ten Hag. A broader look at their new manager’s stint at Old Trafford reveals that he has a 72% win percentage since making the move from Ajax in the summer.

Everton Run of Form
A shocking draw with Manchester City aside, the Toffees have been abysmal all season long. They currently find themselves sitting in the relegation zone and are on a run of seven games without a win. With only two wins in their last 12 games, things are not looking promising.

Recent Head to Head
Despite the current gulf in quality, the head-to-head record between these two teams isn’t all that one-sided. The home side have been victorious just once in their last four games against the away side. This fixture appears to be a tricky one for Manchester United who have won it just four times in their last ten attempts.
Manchester United vs Everton Prediction
This one is a pretty easy win for Ten Hag’s side. Frank Lampard’s club is in disarray at the moment and despite being something of a bogey team for their opposition, it doesn’t seem like they have any chance of scraping a result here. Our prediction is at least a 2-0 win for the twelve-time FA Cup winners.
