Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has called for more intensity and commitment from his players after a Europa League win in midweek.
The Red Devils were still struggling at times against Omonia Nicosia, despite recalls from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro – and a tough defeat to Man City last week.
Everton will again be a tough opponent as they have the best defensive record in the league this season.
The Toffees are 11th after six games unbeaten, while United themselves had four straight wins ahead of last weekend’s derby debacle.
Here’s everything you need to know before playing.
When does Everton play Manchester United?
The game will kick off at 19:00 BST on Sunday 9th October at Goodison Park.
Where can I watch it?
The game will be streamed live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate. Subscribers can stream the game via the BT Sport app and desktop website.
What’s new from the team?
The Toffees are still without a host of defensive names, including Yerry Mina, Mason Holgate and Ben Godfrey. Dominic Calvert-Lewin could make a comeback in the matchday squad but will be struggling after another injury break. Andros Townsend is out and Nathan Patterson suffered an injury on international duty that will likely sideline him until the World Cup break.
For the Red Devils, Donny van de Beek and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are both injured but would not have started anyway, while the same goes for backup goalkeeper Martin Dubravka. Harry Maguire is unlikely to return from injury of his own but Raphael Varane could return. Erik ten Hag will have to decide whether to start Casemiro and Cristiano Ronaldo after both were again on the bench in last weekend’s defeat by Man City but failed to convincingly beat Omonia Nicosia during the week.
EVE – Pickford, Coleman, Coady, Tarkovsky, Mykolenko, Onana, Gueye, Iwobi, Gordon, Maupay, Gray
MUN – De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw, Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes, Antony, Martial, Rashford
Everton’s defense has been difficult to break but United also prefer teams to come forward before counterattacking. It could well be that these defenses eventually cancel each other out. Everton 0-0 Manchester United.
