Sports Innovation previews the Premier League match between Manchester United and Everton and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.

The first match of round 7 in the Premier League on Saturday sees Manchester United and Everton square off at Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s late winner against Villarreal midweek in the Champions League ended a run of three defeats in four games. Manchester United must now build on that result. Despite their recent slip-ups, the Red Devils are just a point behind Premier League leaders Liverpool in fourth place.

Everton, though, are flying high under new manager Rafael Benitez. The fifth-placed visitors are level on 13 points with United and returned to winning ways last weekend in a 2-0 win over Norwich. That said, they are missing several players, including their prolific forwards Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
