We have been looking forward to this one for some time. David Moyes faces his old club for the first time as Manchester United manager. Everton are on upward curve, while the jury remains out about the title credentials of Manchester United.
Indeed, going into the game, Everton are three places above Manchester United in fifth position. With a fairly straightforward December on the cards Manchester United simply must pick up maximum points tonight, and in the games ahead, to be in with a title shout come May. While all the other elite sides in the English league play each other in December, Manchester United will avoid a major clash during the festive period.
So it’s now or never for that long winning streak to start. Expecting an open and entertaining game tonight. Everton will be coming to express themselves and any points will be a bonus – they last beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in 1992.
So here are the confirmed teams for Manchester United versus Everton which kicks off at 7:45 PM
Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Smalling, Vidic, Evra, Valencia, Giggs, Fellaini, Welbeck, Kagawa, Rooney
Subs: Lindegaard, Evans, Cleverley, Nani, Young, Hernandez, Januzaj
Everton: Howard, Coleman, Oviedo, McCarthy, Jagielka, Distin, Mirallas, Barry, Lukaku, Barkley, Pienaar
Robles, Heitinga, Jelavic, Deulofeu, Naismith, Osman, Stones
