The first of this weekend’s FA Cup double header sees Everton take on Manchester United at Wembley. Fresh from their 2-0 win over fellow semi-finalists Crystal Palace yesterday evening, Louis Van Gaal’s Red Devils unsurprisingly go into this match as 4/7 favourites to qualify whilst Everton can be backed at 6/4.
Today we preview all the action and try to find some betting value as well as informing you about our new customer special offer for this tie.
Man United manager Van Gaal’s forced introduction of youngster Marcus Rashford in the Europa League x months ago was the slice of luck the club. After being thrown into his side’s must-win tie against Danish outfit FC Midtjylland, the teenager didn’t squander the golden opportunity that fate had presented him, scoring two goals helping United advance to the next stage of the competition in the process.
The 18-year-old has now scored 7 goals in all competitions since his European baptism of fire and will surely pose plenty of problems for an Everton defence that shipped four goals to Liverpool yesterday evening.
Everton: Ramiro Funes Mori will miss Saturday’s match after getting sent off in his Everton side’s heavy defeat to Liverpool last night. Defender John Stones and midfielder Gareth Barry also remain doubts for the semi-final after picking up knocks at Anfield yesterday.
Manchester United: Red Devils fans held their breath as they saw star striker Marcus Rashford get substituted at Old Trafford last night. With some suspecting his United’s Dutch boss cleared concerns in the press this morning simply stating he was keeping him fresh for this weekend’s semi-final.
Where does the betting value lie?
Should Everton play anything like they did at Anfield last night, we can’t see anything other than a United win on Saturday afternoon. Roberto Martinez’s dilapidated defence just couldn’t cope with the speed and vigour of Liverpool’s attacks and should Loius Van Gaal continue to utilise the pace of the likes of Rashford and Martial at Wembley, we can do nothing but fear the worst for the Merseyside club.
Rashford himself can be backed at 33/20 to score at any time on Saturday and we’re tipping him to continue his stellar first season at United with a goal on Saturday afternoon.
