One of the best games in the Premier League on New Years day will see Manchester United travel to Goodison Park to take on an Everton side featuring former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.
Everton are 2-2-1in their lastfive overall.Since Sam Allardyce took over though Everton have lost just once and that was last Saturday with a last minute goal against Bournemouth. Wayne Rooney , Niasse, Schneiderlein have all excelled under their new manager and I am certain that Rooney and Schneiderlein will be looking forward to facing their former team. Everton have been very solid defensively since Sam Allardyce took over. Goodison Park will be rocking on Monday and I expect the Toffee's crowd to create a hostile atmoosphere for Manchester United.
On Saturday Manchester United again struggled with the Red Devils failing to win for their third game in a row and fourth in all competitions. Jose Mourhino's side lost Romelu Lukaku to injury on Saturday and the former Everton striker will miss this game. Ashley Young is also missing through suspension. This is going to be a tough game for Manchester United, Zlatan Ibrahimovich is also out through injury so Mourhino must turn to Rashford or Martial to lead the line. It might be time for Mourhino to go with MArtial,Rashford up top and play a more conventional 4-4-2.
This is going to be a tough one to call. Personally I think all the value is on the draw and that's where I will be putting my money.
