My girlfriend entered one of those online contests on Wednesday, where if the first goal is scored in the Everton v United game between the 42-43 minute, she wins a pair of free tickets to a match of her choice.
She told me if she wins, she will take me to an Arsenal game...hope she doesn't win tbh...
Everton vs Man Utd. With Martial a doubt and several injuries I think Everton could be in with a decent shot here at getting a result.
Their upswing in performances under Ancelotti has been very noticeable and they were unlucky to leave with nothing from the Emirates last week.
Defensively it’s been a bit hit and miss with the previously out of favour Holgate and Mina forming an interesting CB pairing but Sidibe has been erratic and an ancient Leighton Baines had to start due to injuries last week.
As for Utd they’ve gone up a level with the arrival of Bruno, he looks a quality player with some much needed end product. Defence has been good recently keeping clean sheets in their last three although they’ve needed massive help from VAR.
Martial is a doubt so it’s possible Greenwood will start again after his great goal last week against Watford.
A game that promises lots of goals and good attacking play.
Game to avoid
One for the sadists, Newcastle and Burnley play some of the most negative football in the league. Star player for Newcastle has arguably been Dubravka this season which tells you all you need to know about them.
Saint-Maximin and McNeill have been the most exciting players on each team but beyond that it’s slim pickings. Gun to my head to pick a game nailed for 0-0 it’d be this one.
We will get Soares and you will have the usual suspects on here telling us this is the best we can do, we will buy average players to get into CL and then we will somehow magically start signing the players Dortmund are signing.
