It’s getting hard to maintain my position of never predicting anything but a win.
Everton are always tough and having just seen the staring line up as I write this I’m concerned that we have no natural width…although can’t deny that Welbeck probably deserves to keep his place.
With Young injured though would have prefered to see Tony V get a game with Nani shifting to the left.
Should have just enough to scrape a win, but wouldn’t be surprised to see the scoreline I’ve predicted reversed.
We’re well and truly in our early season lull (two months late) and can’t see this being the game we get out of it. We haven’t got the consistency in defence due to injury/form/suspensions. The midfield players we have in the squad are good enough to compete, just not on current form. Cleverley may be the answer. Rooney’s form has dipped in the aftermath of the off field stuff with his dad and the England game…we need him back to somewhre near his best and soon.
1-2 (Jones, Chicha)
