Manchester United take on Everton at Goodison Park this afternoon. A win for United would see us return to the top four, on equal points with third-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Given United’s recent form in all competitions though, the three points is far from guaranteed. We need to bounce back from the disappointing display and result in the Nou Camp against Barcelona earlier this week.

De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Jones, Dalot, Matic, Fred, Pogba, Rashford, Lukaku, Martial.

Subs: Romero, Young, Pereira, Lingard, Mata, McTominay, Sanchez.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke to the media on Friday morning and was honest about his assessment of the squad. “I’ve been impressed by many of them, not all of them,” he said.

Time is running out for players to impress the manager before the summer transfer window opens. Let’s hope the players are fighting for their place in the team today.

In Everton’s squad, we see two former reds facing us. Lifelong United fan Michael Keane in defence and Morgan Schneiderlin in midfield.
