Ferguson focused only on Everton

February 07, 2013 09:16:18 UK

Everton have been assured by Sir Alex Ferguson that 'lightning won't strike twice' when they travel to take on Manchester United this Sunday.

The Toffees memorably clawed back two late goals to draw 4-4 at Old Trafford in the corresponding fixture last season.

It was a result which went on to have vital ramifications for the Red Devils, as rivals Manchester City went on to claw back an eight-point gap with six games left to lift the title.

We threw it away against them last season but I wouldn't anticipate that happening again.

Sir Alex Ferguson

United will be wary of the threat posed by David Moyes' team, as they also beat them 1-0 on the opening day of the season at Goodison Park. Everton are available at 15.00 to repeat that scoreline at Old Trafford on Sunday while United are 1.002 to win the Premier League title.

Ferguson admits he has a difficult balancing act over the next few days as he tries to get his players to focus on the job in hand - with a Champions League tie against Real Madrid also on the radar next week.

The United supremo concedes: "As soon as the draw was made there was an anticipation about the Madrid tie. But the Everton game is a big game in itself. We threw it away against them last season but I wouldn't anticipate that happening again.

"We'll still need to make sure we play well, though."

Don't forget, all Premier League matches are covered by the bet365 100% Euro Soccer Bonus, where you could earn a bonus of up to 100% on your returns on pre-match accumulator bets.
