The Red Devils’ former player Michael Owen predicts Manchester United to come away with all three points in their Old Trafford encounter with Everton on Saturday afternoon.
Man United play host to a resurgent Blues side under old foe Rafa Benitez, who had several run-ins with them during his spell at Liverpool.
Everton and Manchester United are currently two of five clubs level on 13 points after six Premier League games this season, and a win for either would send them top of the table, momentarily at least.
Ex-Manchester United striker Owen, however, doesn’t see Everton causing too much trouble to his old side.
“I didn’t see that defeat to Villa coming for Man United,” Owen told BetVictor. “That was a disappointing performance, and I reckon one thing is for certain, Cristiano Ronaldo will be taking the penalties from now on!
“After a couple of bad results to Villa and then to QPR in the cup, Everton bounced back with a win at home to Norwich.
“Norwich were the ideal opponents to get some confidence back and frankly, it’s hard to read too much into the win.
“Everton haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2013 and I don’t think they’ll be winning this one. I’m predicting a 3-1 Man United win.”
