That's the way we need to take the game and then what happens, happens.
That gap between Solskjaer's side and City is wider than the difference of 30 points between United and top-flight winners Leeds in 1973/74, a season when the Old Trafford club were relegated - albeit in an era when teams were awarded just two points for a win instead of the current three. The home side worked the ball through a large hole in the Blues' back line that put Erik Lamela into a risky position but he was bundled over by Gomes a couple of yards outside the box, setting Eriksen up to rap home the equaliser. The away win is a big enough price to entice me in.
It's also a game that literally has nothing riding on it for Maurizio Sarri's men. As revealed by SPORT, the Champions League finalists are ready to offer Barça a deal in the region of €30m to land the Portuguese midfielder.
"I want to congratulate my players, they are superheroes". That, combined with the hope that there will be injection of more genuine quality over the summer, should fill Evertonians with plenty of optimism going into the 2019-20 season. Leicester were excellent in their previous home game when beating Arsenal 3-0 and I fancy them quite strongly to pick up another three points.
Tottenham Hotspur survived a spirited second half comeback from Everton to claim the point that saw them seal fourth place in the Premier League and earn their Champions League place for next season.
Remember, the Tottenham players were "reportedly" woken twice during the night by Ajax fans letting off fireworks outside of the hotel in which they were staying. Whats more players will know this and it is a good omen regarding the potential transfers of Zouma and Gomes.
"He's got to be the nicest guy in football, ' tweeted one fan while another said 'the dude always makes me smile no matter what". Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen and Harry Winks will miss out on the clash whilst Serge Aurier, Danny Rose and Victor Wanyama are all doubtful.
In other words, get yourself down to Tottenham's new stadium on Sunday afternoon with your boots and you might get a game!
At the prices however I simply have to back an away win.
Everton have lost their final Premier League game in each of the last two campaigns, with both of those defeats coming in London (1-3 at Arsenal, 1-3 at West Ham).
Everton come into this with their heads held high having kept eight clean sheets in their last 10 outings.
