7/2 Everton are 7/2 with Bet365 to carry on winning when they face Manchester United
The 23-year-old - who signed for the club from Copenhagen in 2012 - made his first Premier League start of the season in Saturday's 4-0 win against Stoke City, marking the occasion with a superb goal just before the hour mark.

And Oviedo has expressed his determination to take advantage of regular left-back Baines being sidelined for up to six weeks with a broken toe.

"I am very happy to have scored my first goal in the Premier League and also to play my first game at left-back," he told Everton's official website.

"I'm also happy that the team played well today. This is a very good chance for me. Leighton is a great player but I have waited a year and a half for this chance and I am so happy to play again.

"I think the coming games are a good opportunity to play for the team and make the most of my chance.

"The team is a strong team and a good group. They are all good guys and good players."

Everton's next Premier League encounter sees them travel to Old Trafford on Wednesday, where they will face former manager David Moyes - now in charge of Manchester United.
