Everton vs Manchester United: Mark Lawrenson shares his prediction for the game

BBC Sports pundit Mark Lawrenson has backed Manchester United to bounce back from our bad run of results against Everton.

Liverpool legend Lawrenson has predicted a draw in our game against Everton on Saturday.

Speaking to the BBC, Mark Lawrenson said: “Everton have now only picked up one point from their past three games but they should have James Rodriguez back from injury for this one. That will be a huge boost.

“Manchester United have had a bad week. They didn’t land a glove on Arsenal when they lost to the Gunners at Old Trafford last Sunday and put in another poor performance in their Champions League defeat in Turkey on Wednesday.

“With his diamond shape in midfield, it feels like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying to shoehorn all sorts of different players into a formation that quite a lot of them don’t want to play in. Paul Pogba on the left does not really work, for example.

“But having said all that, it would be just like United to go to Goodison Park and win. It is exactly the sort of result Solskjaer has come up with before when he has been under pressure, but I think he will have to settle for a point this time.”

Currently, we are 15th in the Premier League table with just 7 points, and also winless in our last 2 games across all competitions.

Lawrenson’s prediction: Everton 1-1 Man United
