Lampard on the brink and Man United make it into the top four


Frank Lampard is facing huge pressure as he hosts Manchester United at Goodison Park for their all-important Premier League clash this weekend.

The Toffees have not been happy lately as they continue to battle relegation, and their midweek loss to Burnley left them precariously one place above the relegation zone.

The numbers that determine which club is the favorite to win

Lampard has lost six of his eight Premier League games since taking charge of the Merseyside club, and another defeat could potentially see Everton destined for a season in the Championship next year.

However, Manchester United will also have to put up a real fight if they are to claim Champions League football and avoid playing in Europe’s second-tier competition next season.

Everton need a winning streak to survive relegation.

Ralf Rangnick’s side are currently seventh in the table, three points behind fourth, but it will take a serious spark for the club to get back on their feet and have a chance of playing in the Champions League.

talkSPORT EDGE examines which desperate club have the best chance of taking the vital three points ahead of this anticipated clash.

  • Everton have won just one of their last 13 Premier League meetings with Manchester United (D6 L6), beating them 4-0 in April 2019 under Marco Silva.
  • Manchester United won that exact match 3-1 last season – they haven’t won a consecutive away league game against Everton since a run of three between August 2005 and September 2007.
  • Manchester United have won 37 Premier League games against Everton – only the Red Devils themselves (38 against Spurs) have beaten a single opponent more times in the competition’s history.
