Manchester United vs Everton: match preview
Having been fortunate to edge out Villarreal in the Champions League in midweek, Manchester United’s sights are now set on returning to winning ways in the Premier League, as they host an Everton side looking to build on a positive start to the campaign.
Following last weekend’s surprise loss to Aston Villa at Old Trafford, United flirted with another home defeat on Wednesday - but, despite being outplayed for much of the evening, recovered from Paco Alcácer’s opener to get their first European win of the season.
After a fine volleyed equaliser by Alex Telles, Cristiano Ronaldo’s 95th-minute winner - his fifth goal in five games since rejoining the club - secured a vital triumph for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, who had begun the Champions League group stage with a shock defeat to Young Boys.
Everton also came unstuck against Villa recently, going down 3-0 in Birmingham in mid-September - but that’s their only negative league result so far under new boss Rafa Benítez, who has guided the Toffees to four wins from six in the top flight. They sit fifth with 13 points, with goal difference all that separates them from United in fourth.
Having previously won at Old Trafford with Liverpool and Chelsea, Benítez can become the first coach to secure away league victories at United with three different clubs, but the Spaniard is up against some seriously discouraging stats. Everton haven’t beaten United in Manchester since 2013, and that win was only their second away to the Red Devils in the Premier League era.
Manchester United vs Everton: team news
Captain Harry Maguire will again play no part for Manchester United as he is still recovering from a calf injury sustained in the defeat to Aston Villa, but Aaron-Wan Bissaka is back in the frame for selection after missing the win over Villarreal through suspension.
Although Marcus Rashford has returned to training following shoulder surgery, the forward isn’t yet ready to make his comeback for United, while Solskjaer says Luke Shaw, who missed out against Villarreal through illness and injury, is a doubt for Saturday's game. “We’ve got to make a decision on him,” the United boss told reporters on Friday.
Seamus Coleman, Richarlison, André Gomes and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all remain out injured for Everton, while Fabian Delph is also expected to be unavailable due to a shoulder issue. Benítez says Alex Iwobi is doubtful with a “little problem”, but Jean-Philippe Gbamin is back in contention to play after overcoming a thigh injury. "JP is training again,” Benítez told his pre-match press conference. “He is fully fit. It is good news to have him back because we need bodies."
