Two sides that are currently facing back to back defeats in the Premier League lock horns weekend. Everton will play host to Manchester United at Goodison Park. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 3:30 pm.
The Toffees saw their somewhat 100% clean record fall off in the past two weeks. Manchester United continue their poor form in the Champions League this weekend in 15th place with their joint-worst campaign since 1986-87.
The incredible Champions League record for Manchester United came to a halt last weekend when the side suffered their first defeat. A 2-1 defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir put a lot of pressure on Ole Gunnar after a tactical disaster. A defensive shamble saw veteran attacker Demba Ba net his first goal. Despite Martial equalizing before the half time break, it was late with Visca netting a goal.
Their home record is another cause of headache with only two wins at Old Trafford. Arsenal ended their 14 years wait for a win at Old Trafford last Sunday with a 1-0 victory. The troubles keep building for Ole Gunnar.
On the other hand, it seems that things are starting to go astray for Ancelotti at Goodison Park. A loss this weekend will see the side face three Premier League defeats for the first time this calendar. It is a fate yet to befall Ancelotti since November 2006.
