“Both sides had disappointing results last weekend and I’m finding it hard to split the sides at Goodison,” the Englishman wrote on Betvictor.com.

“Romelu Lukaku scored a hat-trick against United for West Brom in that daft 5-5 draw at the Hawthorns in Sir Alex’s last game in charge, but has yet to score for Everton against United in the PL in six games. The blues need a big game from their star striker.”

A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation; game to finish 1—1 at 6/1.”

Everton are not in good form at the moment and will head into the match against United on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Southampton away from home at St. Mary’s Stadium.

The Toffees are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 19 points from 13 matches.

The Merseyside outfit will find it tough to win against United on Sunday evening, but they should be confident of at least picking up a point.

United appear to have recovered some form and seem to be playing with confidence at the moment.

Jose Mourinho’s side won 4-1 against West Ham United at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday evening.
