Thursday’s narrow Europa League win over Omonia Nicosia is now old news and Manchester United are preparing to resume their Premier League campaign as they travel to Goodison Park on Sunday evening.
The Reds saw their four-game winning run in the league come to an end last time out at Manchester City, and Everton will be no pushovers as Erik ten Hag’s men look to make it two wins in the space of four days.
Frank Lampard’s side secured victory over United in this fixture last season and so the visitors will need to be at their best if they are to secure the three points on Sunday. Cristiano Ronaldo will be hoping to play some part in tomorrow’s clash, though goals in midweek from both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford mean the five-time Ballon d’Or winner may once again be forced to watch from the sidelines.
One man who definitely won’t feature tomorrow is former Everton loanee Donny van de Beek. The Dutchman’s expected Old Trafford renaissance hasn’t quite worked out as hoped, with injuries curtailing his progress under Ten Hag. The earliest Van de Beek could return is October 22, but Ten Hag has insisted he will be afforded his chance.
Today’s big talking point: do you think Van de Beek has a future at United? Have your say here.
