Everton takes on Manchester United in game week 31. Everton requires a win to increase their chances of staying in the League. Manchester United desperately need a win to keep their hopes of Champions League football.


Everton have been abysmal this season. Placed at 17th position, they are a point off from being in the relegation spot. Everton have looked disarrayed ever since Carlo Ancelotti left. Everton have had a string of unsuccessful managers and players not performing up to their mark have left Everton at the bottom. Frank Lampard has had a difficult time at Everton so far where in his 8 games, he has only managed to win 2 and lose the other 6. Even though Lampard can’t take all the blame, the players are to blame as well and they need to get their plans together at least now or risk playing in the Championship.

Manchester United

Manchester United have been average this season. Placed at 7th, they need to win the rest of their games to achieve top 4 and Champions League football. However, they face stiff competition from the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham. Manchester United have had awful finishing in the final 3rd. They have been unable to find the last pass to feed the striker. Cristiano Ronaldo arguably one of the greatest players of all time have had a hard time this season which is mostly because United have been unable to complete the last pass. United need to get their passes pitch-perfect if they are to finish top 4.
