Everton will welcome Manchester United to Goodison Park as both look to join Brentford and Manchester City in the Semi Finals Caraboa Cup on Wednesday night.
Everton will be looking to avenge their 3 – 1 home Premier League defeat which happened right under their nose. This clash will have more at stake as the winner of this meeting will be a game away from the finals.
Everton haven’t been consistent this season but will be going into this game with confidence boosted by Three consecutive victories, which include, their 1 Nil victory Chelsea, 2 Nil away win over Leicester City and their most recent 2 – 1 home victory over Arsenal FC.
Manchester United on the other hand, have pulled off a set of consecutive domestic victories since they were knocked out of UEFA by RB Liepzig and their goalless draw with domestic rivals Manchester City. They most recently established themselves as a high scoring side with a 6 – 2 victory over Leeds United.
Everton have been able to get themselves better results and will be hoping to topple another big giant in their bid to progress in the competition. The Red Devils will face a tough task going through the Merseyside Blues, who have been able to measure up with the big guys in English football this season.
Manchester United are more dangerous on the break and a quick counter with the likes of Rashford, Martial, Greenwood and the creativity of Bruno Fernandez could cause serious damage to Everton defence but United also conceed as much as they score which will also aid Everton.
Everton tend to kickoff their game with a specified plan, building up an attack from the back but the Red Devils mostly absorb pressure and slowly grow gradually into their games, lacking concentration especially in the defense. This has seen United record some notable comeback victories and the reason why they got knocked out of the UEFA Champions League as Liepzig defended better despite being outclassed by in the late stages of the game.
