Manchester United Set To Host Everton At Old Trafford
Manchester United go into their home tie with Everton on September 17 unbeaten in the Premier League this season and they will be expected to add a further three points to their tally against the Toffees. Everton have made a slow start to their campaign, despite spending heavily in the summer transfer window.
United had a 100% record before last weekend, where they drew 2-2 with Stoke. They did, however, run out 3-0 winners against Benfica in the Champions League earlier in the week.
Romelu Lukaku is likely to be facing his old club for the first time since his move to Old Trafford in the summer. The Belgium international has scored four goals already in the campaign and tops the goalscoring charts this season.
Jose Mourinho’s side are the $1.33 favourite with Ladbrokes to win the game which would add further misery onto Everton, who have just four points on the board and are 16th-place in the table.
Elsewhere on September 17, Chelsea entertain Arsenal in a London derby at Stamford Bridge. The Blues have won their last three games with victories coming over Tottenham, Everton and Leicester in what has been an impressive run by the defending champions following their opening game defeat to Burnley.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have made a poor start to their campaign. Arsene Wenger’s side were embarrassed by Liverpool at Anfield where they went down 4-0. The Frenchman will be relieved to have retained the services of Alexis Sanchez last month but defeat against their local rivals could see them seven points off the top of the table after just five games into the season.
If you are having a bet on the game at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea can be backed at $1.80, the draw is $4 and Arsenal are available at $4.50.
