Anytime Everton loses the Merseyside Derby, which has been a lot recently, it feels like a punch to the gut. But the Blues have almost no time to recover as it is a quick turnaround to face fifth-place Manchester United. A win for Everton brings to the two clubs even on points while United does have two games in hand.
These two sides met back in December and played to a 1-1 draw with the goals coming from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a Leighton Baines penalty at Goodison Park. It could be a similar outcome on Tuesday. United doesn’t score a ton, but the Everton backline is old and slow, (or young and unproven). And while the Red Devils defence is resolute, it only takes Romelu Lukaku one shot to ruin an afternoon.
