Man United v Everton: Lukaku and Rashford to extend Everton’s woe

| 16.09.2017

The weekend’s Premier League action concludes when Manchester United host Everton at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho saw his side drop their first points of the season last weekend against Stoke City, although a 3-0 win over Basel in the Champions League quickly restored momentum.

As for Everton, this game marks the end of a nightmare fixture list which has seen the Toffees play Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Man United in the opening weeks.

They’re also coming off a Europa League trip to Atalanta and have a dire record at Old Trafford, winning once there since 1992.

So they go into this clash as 15/2 underdogs. United are the 2/5 favourites, with the draw available at 7/2.

All eyes however, will be on two men – Romelu Lukaku and Wayne Rooney.

Both players will be facing their former clubs for the first time since switching allegiances this summer.

With six goals from his opening six games as a Man United striker, it’s safe to say Lukaku has hit the ground running.

The 24-year-old is 12/5 favourite to score first and remind Everton what they’re missing out on.

As for Rooney, he’s 11/1 to bag the opener, and 10/3 to score anytime at the Theatre of Dreams.

Both strikers could be upstaged by the in-form Marcus Rashford however.

The teenager has netted three goals in three games for club and country. We’re 5/4 he continues that run by scoring anytime.

And United’s home record means it’s all shaping up to be another difficult afternoon for Ronald Koeman’s side.

The hosts are unbeaten in their last 33 games on home soil, keeping clean sheets in each of their last four.

And with Everton failing to score against both Spurs and Chelsea, the 23/20 on United to win to nil may well appeal.
