Manchester United and Everton will face each other in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Red Devils are currently sitting in 15th place of the league table, while the Toffees are in a more fortunate position, filling the 4th place on the list three points behind the leaders Liverpool.
Both sides will be looking for a successful game, especially United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is struggling to keep his managerial job at Old Trafford.
However, pundit Mark Lawrenson has not predicted a victory for any of the sides. He believes the game will end up with a 1 – 1 draw.
“Everton have now only picked up one point from their past three games but they should have James Rodriguez back from injury for this one. That will be a huge boost,” he said.
“Manchester United have had a bad week. They didn’t land a glove on Arsenal when they lost to the Gunners at Old Trafford last Sunday and put in another poor performance in their Champions League defeat in Turkey on Wednesday.
“With his diamond shape in midfield, it feels like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying to shoehorn all sorts of different players into a formation that quite a lot of them don’t want to play in. Paul Pogba on the left does not really work, for example.
“But having said all that, it would be just like United to go to Goodison Park and win. It is exactly the sort of result Solskjaer has come up with before when he has been under pressure, but I think he will have to settle for a point this time.”
