Louis Saha expects Everton striker Wayne Rooney to score against Manchester United.
All eyes will be on Wayne Rooney this weekend as he returns to Old Trafford for the first time since joining Everton from Manchester United in the summer.
Everton are struggling at the moment, with Ronald Koeman’s side yet to win in their last five games in all competitions.
They face United, the Premier League leaders, on the back of two successive 3-0 defeats (home and away) against Tottenham Hotspur and Atalanta, respectively.
The Toffees, therefore, badly need a win, following their woeful start to their new campaign, and Rooney could take the centre-stage on Sunday.
The 31-year-old left United this summer following a successful career of 13 years, that saw him become the club’s record goalscorer.
Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has predicted Rooney to score against his old club. The 39-year-old, who also played for Everton, has backed his former teammate to score.
“I think Rooney will find a way to score. I’m scared for United that he can find different ways,” said Saha, as quoted by The Daily Star.
However, he expects Romelu Lukaku to score first, and backs United to win the match 2-1.
“But Romelu Lukaku will score first. He has got everything. He’s strong and he can play in different styles.
“Sometimes it’s very tough, there is no space and not a lot of chances, but with Lukaku’s strength, he can hold the ball and he can create his own chances.
“He’s definitely the type of player who can still improve. I will go for 2-1 United.”
