Everton vs Man Utd other betting trends

First team to score

In their last 20 Premier League meetings, the team that has scored first in matches between Everton and Manchester United has gone on to win the match on just 12 occasions, which suggests that the first goal isn't necessarily the be-all and end-all on Sunday.

Manchester United have scored first more often than Everton, and also have a better win percentage when scoring first compared to Everton.

On Sunday, United are the narrow favourites to get the first goal of the game at 20/21 while you can get Everton at a price of 21/20.

To win from behind

Manchester United have come from behind to beat Everton on five PL occasions, while the Toffees have only managed the feat once. That was back in February 2010, when a rocket from Russian winger Diniyar Bilyaletdinov sparked the Toffees' comeback.

The most recent time either side came from behind to steal the three points came in last season's corresponding fixture at Goodison Park, when Alex Iwobi's early opener was cancelled out by Antony and Cristiano Ronaldo.

On Sunday, you can get odds of 12/1 on Man Utd beating Everton from behind while the odds for Everton to come back from behind stand at 11/1.

Early goals

In the last 20 Premier League matches between Everton and Manchester United, six goals have been scored inside the opening 15 minutes. Three of those goals were scored by Manchester United and three were scored by Everton, which suggests that both teams are equally as likely to get off to a quick start on Sunday.

In last season's fixture, two goals were scored in the opening 15 minutes, with Iwobi scoring after just five and Antony equalising ten minutes later.

On Sunday, you can get odds of 6/1 on Everton scoring inside the opening 15 minutes and 6/1 on Man Utd scoring inside the opening 15 minutes.

Both teams to score

Out of the 62 Premier League matches between Everton and Man Utd, both teams have scored 27 times, which is a strike rate of 43.55% for the ever-popular BTTS market.

This is a percentage which demonstrates just how exciting games between the two clubs often are. The fact that there has only ever been one 0-0 result between Everton and Man Utd in the PL (at Old Trafford back in August 2004) illustrates this further.

On Sunday, the bookmakers have priced the both teams to score market at 3/5.

Total cards per game

Over the past five games between the two clubs, there have been 12 cards shown to players on both sides. All of these cards were yellows, with the last red card in this fixture coming back in 2017 when Ashley Williams was sent off in stoppage time in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

On Sunday, you can get odds of over 4.5 yellow cards in the match at 4/6, while the odds on someone to be red-carded is 3/1.
