Manchester United vs Everton Match Preview (22/04/2012)

Everton head to Old Trafford on the back of a defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup last week, Moyesie will no doubt tell the players that to go to Old Trafford and come away with something will be a good way of moving forward and getting a bit of pride back after the defeat at Wembley.

Old Trafford is a horrible place for Everton recently and in truth we never seem to come away with much to smile about.

It sometimes evens seems like we rollover and let Man Utd tickle our bellies, with us conceding that Manchester United will probably come out triumphant.

Baines is missing for Everton and Moyes could bring back Tony Hibbert and move Phil Neville to left back. Royston Drenthe has been doing god knows what again and Moyes looks like he’s fed up of the Dutchman and by all accounts it seems unlikely Drenthe will get much of a run out before the end of the season when his loan deal runs out.

It would not be a surprise to see Phil Jagielka back but Distin and Heitinga are favourites to start together in the centre of defence.

Darron Gibson will be looking to show the United fans what they’re missing after an impressive start to his Everton career. United fans probably didn’t shed many tears when they lost Gibson and likewise Evertonians thought he was a squad player and part of the Man Utd deadwood.

Gibson has come in and done a job for Everton in a similar way to Lee Carsley when he arrived and is now one of the first names on the team sheet. We have perhaps missed that kind of player who can dig in and pick up anything that comes through midfield.

It will be a close game and probably one with not too many chances for Everton, Jelavic will have to be on his game to make the most out of whatever little scraps we can manage.

Score Prediction: Manchester United 1-1 Everton

The Score Was: Manchester United 4-4 Everton
