Everton v Manchester United Tips: Red Army to triumph on the road once again

Manchester United to win and both teams to score has landed in all of their six away league fixtures this season
Manchester United to win and both teams to score has landed in all of their six away league fixtures this season

Manchester United travel to Everton on Wednesday evening with a place in the semi-final of the League Cup at stake for the winners. Both sides are in good form at the moment with wins in their last two league games in the Premier League. We’ve got three plays for the match from @AnthonyEadson that feature in our football tips on BettingOdds.com this week. 

Carlo Ancelotti will not have the luxury of being able to rotate his team to the extent of his opposite number due to a lengthy injury list. Lucas Digne, James Rodriquez, Allan and Fabian Delph are all sidelined for the Toffees with the manager expected to name his strongest side available. 

Wholesale changes are expected from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with potential starts for Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba. Scott McTominay is set to miss out with a thigh injury he picked up in the game against Leeds on Sunday where the Scot bagged himself a three minute brace. 

The game will go to extra time and penalties should the teams fail to be separated after 90 minutes. A win for Everton is priced at 23/10, while a victory for the visitors priced odds-against at 11/10.

Manchester United to win & both teams to score - 1.5pts @ 11/4 Paddy Power

Richarlison 2+ shots on target - 1.5pts @ 11/4 Paddy Power

Cavani 2+ shots on target, Sigurdsson 1+ shot on target, Richarlison to be carded - 0.25pts @ 48/1 Betfair

Everton v Manchester United
Manchester United to win & both teams to score
  • Manchester United recently became only the third team in history to win their first six away games of a top flight season 
  • They have conceded in all six of those wins on the road in the Premier League this season
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won all six away of his games as manager in the League Cup

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won all six of his fixtures on the road in the League Cup with Manchester United. His side have also recently become only the third team in history to win their opening first six away games of a season and for my first selection on Wednesday’ I’m backing the Red Devils to win and both teams to score at 11/4 with Paddy Power.

It’s worth noting that this selection has landed in all six of United’s away wins in the league this season which gives huge appeal to the 11/4 offering for this League Cup clash. With two rotated sides I think we should see an open game with plenty of quality on show in the final third. With Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, the Toffees have the ability to cause United problems but ultimately I see the quality of the away sides attack being the deciding factor. 

Richarlison 2+ shots on target
  • Richarlison has registered seven shots on target in his last three home games for Everton
Odds correct as of 2020-12-22 16:55 Odds subject to change.

Richarlison had registered seven shots on target in his most recent two home games before I recommended the Brazilian to have two or more against Arsenal on Saturday, where he uncharacteristically fired a blank with no shots in the game at all. I’m not giving up on the Everton forward though and I’m going back in on him to have at least two shots on target against Manchester United at the boosted price of 11/4.

As I’ve mentioned before I think Richarlison can be a little overlooked in this market compared to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with the latter being priced at 6/5 for 2+ shots on target compared to 11/4 for the former. Prior to last weekend Richarlison had registered at least one shot on target in six consecutive games for club and country. I think we are in for a high scoring game on Wednesday evening and I fancy Richarlison to test Dean Henderson in the United goal on a few occasions. 

Today's Tips
Cavani 2+ shots on target, Sigurdsson 1+ shot on target, Richarlison to be carded
  • Edinson Cavani registered two shots on target in 20 minutes when coming off the bench against Leeds at the weekend
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson has attempted five shots in his last three games and has landed a shot on target in two of the three League Cup game he's featured in this term
  • Richarlison was booked eight times in the league last season. 5/1 looks generous as a single with Betfair, with bet365 going 9/4
Odds correct as of 2020-12-22 17:00 Odds subject to change.

It’s notoriously difficult to predict the starting line-ups in the League Cup, so it may be worth holding off until team news for this one but at 48/1 I like the look of Edinson Cavani 2+ shots on target, Gylfi Sigurdsson 1+ shots on target, with Richarlison to be carded.

Edinson Cavani registered two shots on target in 20 minutes when coming off the bench against Leeds on Sunday and I fancy a repeat if he starts against Everton. The Uruguayan has shown glimpses of what he is capable of and he should be spearheading the attack for the visitors on Wednesday.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has enjoyed a run of three consecutive starts in the league for Everton and has registered five shots in those games. The Icelandic midfielder has landed a shot on target in two of his three League Cup fixtures this campaign and looks a generous price at 7/5 as a single to have another in this quarter-final.

Readers of my ramblings for BettingOdds.com will know that I put up Richarlison to be carded on Saturday and once again I’m favouring this selection. Betfair currently have the Brazilian at 5/1 to be carded on Wednesday with bet365 going considerably shorter at 9/4. This looks a decent price for a player that was booked on eight occasions in the league last season. 

That’s 48/1 using the Same Game Multi feature. Please remember to gamble responsibly and L

let’s hope for an enjoyable last game before Christmas. All the best, and thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read my selections and opinions this year. Merry Christmas.
