MANCHESTER UNITED TO WIN AT ODDS 1.90Final result: 1 - 0
Profit: 0.00 - 8 = -8
The Toffees have played seven friendlies before the start of the season, winning three of them (4-1 vs Morecambe FC ; 1-0 vs Dundee United ; 4-1 vs AEK Athens), with two draws (1-1 vs Motherwell FC ; 1-1 vs Ludogorets Razgrad) and two defeats in this period (0-2 vs Blackpool FC ; 0-1 vs Malaga CF).It appears, that David Moyes will once again has one of the smallest squads in Premiership, but it was so in the past few seasons, so I doubt, that it will be a big problem for the Scotsman.On the other hand, with only 23 players in their squad, I doubt, that The Blues will be able to make better performance, compared with the last season.The departure of Tim Cahill (midfielder / to "New York Red Bulls") and Jack Rodwell (midfielder / to "Manchester City") could also have a negative impact over the home team, especially in such games against Top teams like Manchester United.On the other hand, Steven Pienaar (midfielder / from "Tottenham") and Steven Naismith (striker / from "Rangers Glasgow") will definitely rise the overall quality of this team, as Steven Naismith already showed his potential against AEK Athens in the beginning of this month, scoring three goals for a 4-1 victory.The Red Devils have played six friendlies before the start of the new season, with three victories (1-0 vs AmaZulu FC ; 1-0 vs Shanghai Shenhua ; 4-3 vs Hannover 96) and three draws in this period (1-1 vs Ajax Cape Town ; 0-0 vs Valerenga ; 0-0 vs FC Barcelona).The team definitely looks stronger, compared with the last season, especially after the arrival of Shinji Kagawa (midfielder / from "Borussia Dortmund") and Robin van Persie (striker / from "Arsenal") at "Old Trafford".With Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie in attack, I expect, that The Red Devils will score even more goals, compared with the last season (89), while with players like Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic their defence is one of the best in Europe.It is hard to be said, which of these two teams will be in better shape at the start of the season, but in my opinion Manchester United has better chances in this clash.Not only because The Red Devils are definitely more experienced team, compared with their opponents, but also because Everton had some problems at the start of the last few seasons.Also - the visitors are 3-2-1 11-9 in their last six visits at "Goodison Park" and 5-4-1 17-12 in their last ten games against this opponent.And finally - I don't think, that there will be such high odds for Manchester United through the season.
