There’s reason to believe Man United could slip up following midweek play, but they weren’t exactly at their best on Wednesday and will likely fire on more cylinders, especially with Everton likely without many key players. We reserve the right to alter this prediction if Rafa Benitez’s injury update says there are surprise returnees. Manchester United 2-1 Everton.
