Everton keeper Howard: Defeat could inspire Man Utd

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard believes victory on Saturday over Manchester United will inspire his former club to go on and win a potential Treble this season.

Howard says the defeat will be the spur for a rapid reaction by his former club.

"I think United will respond positively," said Howard. "They tend not to look back too often or dwell on things.

"They wouldn't have wanted to concede that third goal at the end, but maybe it can work in their favour. Everyone can lose by the odd goal but 3-1 is a margin that could give them a kick up the backside and act as a spark."
