Welcome to Everton vs. Man Utd
The two teams meet today at Goodison Park with three points much needed for very different reasons by managers Frank Lampard and Ralph Rangnick.
Despite being one of only six teams to never be relegated from the Premier League, Everton have found themselves in a real relegation battle this season and are just one point ahead of Burnley in relegation.
Ralph Rangnick knows the importance of Champions League football for the club and will do everything he can to continue fighting for the coveted fourth place currently occupied by Tottenham.
The race for placement in the Champions League is wide open with Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham and Man United, who are pushing each other strongly until the final match.
Everton’s fears of relegation worsened on Wednesday when they lost 3-2 to their counterpart Burnley, although they had a 2-1 advantage at half-time thanks to two Richarlison penalties.
