Everton host Manchester United at Goodson Park on Saturday. Both clubs badly need a win but for very different reasons. Everton sit in 17th, only a single point above the relegation zone. A loss to United would open the door for Burnley to jump them in the table with a win or draw at Norwich on Sunday. Manchester United currently sit 7th, but three points would bring them level on points with Arsenal and Spurs in the race for the final Champions League spot.
Cristiano Ronaldo is back from his illness and I expect he will start the match and make an immediate impact. Michael Keane has had a nightmare season in the middle of Everton’s defense and I think it’s likely to continue here. I’m backing Ronaldo to score and Manchester United to win.
