Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Happy Easter weekend, Blues! The staff at Royal Blue Mersey would like to wish you all a happy holiday filled with friends, family, and hopefully three points for the Toffees. After a recent Champions League exit to Barcelona, Manchester United will be hungry for a win when they travel to Goodison this Sunday. Luckily for Everton, The Red Devils have been on a horrid run of form lately, losing five of their last seven matches in all competitions. However, Manchester United has had Everton’s number in the past few seasons. In their last 10 meetings, Everton are 1-7-2, with their only win coming in a 3-0 victory at Goodison in 2015. Our fingers will be crossed for an Easter miracle this Sunday.
