One of the major reasons why Frank Lampard's side could prevail in this affair is that they are in a battle to avoid being dragged into the scrap of the English top flight survival this season. They are in danger of being relegated for the first time since 1955. This is after they lost 3-2 in a dramatic match against Burnley last time out and currently one point above the relegation zone at 17th place with 25 points.
Secondly, Ralf Rangnick's men are not in good shape at the moment with their hopes of securing top 4 finish this season fading away. They have managed only one win in their last 4 league games with 2 draws and one defeat.
Lastly, Lampard was a tough nut to crack against United with his former side, Chelsea. He is well conversant with the Old Trafford side incumbent defensive weaknesses and would do his best to exploit them.
Arsenal legend, Paul Merson's analysis has concluded that the Toffees could pocket 3 points against Manchester United.
