Everton vs Man Utd: Predictions
Everton appear to have found their feet again in recent weeks. The Toffees’ blistering early season form had appeared to subside somewhat following some injuries to key players, but a trio of consecutive victories over Chelsea, Leicester City and Arsenal have lifted the side into fourth place and got the league campaign back on track.
Although European qualification through the Premier League will be the main goal for Carlo Ancelotti in his first full season on Merseyside, the EFL Cup offers another route into the Europa League. After victories over Salford City, Fleetwood Town and West Ham United, a tougher test now presents itself at Goodison Park in Manchester United.
And what’s more, this is a Manchester United side in decent form. Although their spectacular collapse in the Champions League has perhaps overshadowed their domestic form, the Red Devils’ win over Leeds United on Sunday took them to seven games without defeat in the Premier League – and to 3rd in the table.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to add any silverware to the club’s extensive trophy cabinet in his time in charge and may view this competition as an ideal opportunity to do exactly that, with away wins over Luton Town and Brighton & Hove Albion, both by a 0-3 scoreline, seeing them through to the final eight.

Everton vs Man Utd: Match Stats
Bruno Fernandes’ Premier League shot map shows how much of a goal threat he can offer the Red Devils.
Everton have failed to score in only one of their last eight games in the Premier League and they’ve racked up 12 goals in just three outings in this competition so far this term. Given that both teams have scored in four of United’s last five games, another high-scoring game could be on the cards here – but we do expect United to continue their good domestic form with another win.
Bruno Fernandes scored twice in United’s 1-3 victory at Goodison Park in the Premier League this year and he will hope to be among the goals again here. The Portuguese star added another two to his tally in United’s 6-2 win over Leeds at the weekend to take his seasonal total to 14 in all competitions.

United have already taken three Premier League points from the Toffees this season as a Bruno Fernandes brace helped them to a 1-3 win at Goodison Park last month. Remarkably, the two sides haven’t faced off in this competition since 1993, when goals from Mark Hughes and Ryan Giggs saw United through a Fourth Round tie.
