Tip Manchester United FC - Everton
Manchester United are up to fifth in the Premier League after wins over Tottenham and Manchester City. They look to get a third straight league victory when hosting 14th placed Everton. United have had an inconsistent season and have struggled to string wins together. The past week has been impressive though and they are now only five points behind the final Champions League place. Home form is impressive with 15 points from eight games and only one defeat.
When a manager gets the sack, it seems often to be a new start for the players. It's as if it was the fault of the manager all the time, after all he was the one who lost his job not them. Just days after Everton removed Marco Silva from his job, they hosted fourth placed Chelsea and won 3-1. That win ended a run of three straight defeats and lifted them out of the relegation zone. They are still only two points above the relegation zone though, so a lot more hard work to do in the weeks ahead. One area that has to be improved is their away league form. Everton have four of their last five away matches and this will prove a tough game at Old Trafford. Go for a home win in this match.
Key points Manchester United FC - Everton

Conclusion Manchester United FC - Everton
Manchester United don't have the hardest of fixture lists so look like ending the year on a high. They have won their last two league games and are strong at home. Marcus Rashford is in top scoring form and with Martial back in the team, they can get a win in this game. Everton showed improvement under Duncan Ferguson but they have struggled on their travels for a fair while now. Go for United to get the win.
