PREDICTION
Everton have managed some positives results against the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool recently but that has been built on a strong defensive wall which they will repeat here. Their games have been low scoring and with United without Lukaku or Ibrahimovic, under 2.5 goals is worth considering.

MEMORABLE MEETING
April 2015 saw Everton complete a run of three consecutive home league wins against Manchester United for the first time since Boxing Day in 1985. This was their biggest win against United since 19 August 1992 with a 3-0 victory at Old Trafford (their first-ever away game in the Premier League).
