Team Updates:

Manchester United are without Paul Pogba (hamstring). Luke Shaw is approaching full fitness but Marcos Rojo (knee) is still absent.
Everton have reported no new injury concerns.

 

Preview:
Manchester United’s 33 Premier League wins against Everton is the second-highest total for one club beating another in the competition after Man Utd’s 34 v Aston Villa.

Interestingly, Ronald Koeman has faced Jose Mourinho five times as a manager in the Premier League without losing, a PL record.

Romelu Lukaku’s next goal will be his 90th in the PL. Should he score in this match he will become the fourth-youngest player to reach 90 (24 years, 127 days), after Robbie Fowler (22y 241d), Michael Owen (22y 324d) and Wayne Rooney (24y 35d).

Wayne Rooney or Morgan Schneiderlin could become the eighth different player to score against Man Utd having already played for them in the PL (after Hughes, Dublin, Ince, Gillespie, Berg, Campbell and Welbeck).

Manager Quotes:
Jose Mourinho:“Everton have lots of good players, they’re a good team and it will be a very difficult match for us.”

Ronald Koeman: It is time for the senior players to step up. I have the confidence we can can come out of this.”
