Everton vs Manchester United: Predicted lineups, team news, predictions

Everton will host Manchester United at the Goodison Park on Sunday in the Premier League and will look to maintain their unbeaten run.

The Toffees are unbeaten in their last seven matches in all competitions but planning on maintaining their momentum against Man United is a huge mountain to climb, given that United are also in decent form.

The Red Devils have won six of their last eight matches in all competitions. Although they won Omonia 3-2 on Thursday night thanks to Marcus Rashford’s brace and Anthony Martial’s strike, Manchester United are keen on bouncing back to winning ways in the Premier League, having lost their last league game 6-3 to their city rivals Manchester City over the weekend.

Manchester United Team News

The Red Devils are likely to be without a host of first team players in their travelling squad to Everton. Harry Maguire has been ruled out of the clash with a muscle injury but he’s expected to be back in action later this month. The United skipper has already missed two games against Man City and Omonia. Raphael Varane is more likely to miss the trip with a foot injury and he wasn’t part of the squad that beat Omonia 3-2 in Cyprus on Thursday after he suffered the injury in the first half.
