Everton Team News & Preview
Everton host Manchester United in the Premier league this weekend, and the Toffees will be looking to get their season back on track with a morale-boosting win over José Mourinho‘s men.
Everton have a history of doing well against the Old Trafford outfit, and Ronald Koeman will be hoping to motivate his team into another impressive performance against the Red Devils this week. They have won three of their last six matches against United at home.
The Merseyside outfit are in very poor form right now and have won just one of their last nine matches in all competitions. Koeman is under a lot of pressure right now, and the Toffees cannot afford another disappointing result here.
Muhamed Bešić and Matthew Pennington are the only injury worries for the home side.
Predicted Everton Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Stekelenburg; Coleman, Jagielka, Williams, Baines; Gueye, Barry; Bolasie, Barkley, Lennon; Lukaku
Manchester United Team News & Preview
Manchester United will be looking to capitalise on Everton‘s poor form when they travel to Goodison this week. The Red Devils have been very inconsistent so far, and they are already 11 points adrift of league leaders, Chelsea.
However, they will be heading into this game with some confidence after their 4-1 thrashing of West Ham United in the EFL Cup.
José Mourinho’s men cannot afford to slip up once again in their race for a top four finish, and this will be a must-win game for them.
The away side will be without their three first choice defenders in Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling, and Luke Shaw. Bailly is back in training, but the new signing is lacking in match fitness. Luke Shaw picked up a knock against West Ham and is expected to sit this one out.
Captain Wayne Rooney is suspended and will miss the trip to Goodison.
Predicted Manchester United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Rojo, Blind, Darmian; Herrera, Carrick; Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Martial; Ibrahimovic
