Martinez v Moyes
POSTED: 18 April 2014
What a game Liverpool v Man City was last week that also saw the pick of Liverpool to win land a nice profit. It was a fantastic game between the league’s top two scoring sides so there can be no surprise that there was goals. That’s Liverpool’s 10th win in succession, if they win their 4 games left they win the league.
I note they play Norwich this weekend who Luis Suarez has a particularly impressive record against, so would be guessing that they’ll get one step closer to the title with another win.
My pick of the week comes from Merseyside, but this time it’s Everton I am backing to beat Man Utd at Goodison. Everton’s own run of form has seen them climb into the top 4 and this game represents David Moyes’ return to Goodison since leaving Everton to manage United.
Earlier in the season when the sides met, Roberto Martinez managed Everton to a victory at Old Trafford, something that David Moyes never did in his 11 seasons at Everton.
Not many would have thought Everton would be above United at this stage of the season after David Moyes left, however they are and deservedly so. Roberto Martinez has got Everton playing in the ‘school of science’ way they were known for in the 80’s and I think he has the tactical nous to stump Moyes once more.
I mentioned last week how the atmosphere would help Liverpool, this week it will be the same for Everton – as the crowd are going to be very vocal against both United and Moyes in particular.
I’m going for an Everton win at 2.4 and I wouldn’t put anyone off backing under 2.5 goals at 1.95.
Pick – Everton v Man Utd – Everton to win @ 2.4
