Everton is the next name on Jose Mourinho’s potential sheet of worry, as the two sides clash at Old Trafford.

Despite showing positive trends in their past Premier League matches, Manchester United are still poised quite worryingly at the 10th spot, with Everton actually reigning a point above them seated in the 8th place.

Let us have a look at how both sides could lineup during the weekend game:

 

Manchester United

Mourinho’s injury sheet is populated by Sanchez and Lingard, who are recovering from groin problems, while Rojo and McTominay are ailing from knee woes.

Dalot, Jones, and Fellaini also sit on the uncertainty list, although both Lingard and McTominay could still muster a late appearance.

Against the Toffees, Mourinho simply can’t wait till half-time to go all guns blazing. Romelu Lukaku, in particular, will have to work out his awful showings and worrying goal-drought, and his former club might be as good a chomping place to start as any.

Martial will be hoping to keep up his brilliant form as of recent, and supporters will be hoping the Frenchman’s services aren’t called for after United have gone down.

Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Valencia, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw
Midfielders: Matic, Pogba
Forwards: Rashford, Mata, Martial; Lukaku

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Everton

Marco Silva’s side comes to Old Trafford with a woeful past record, although the table-dynamics ought to give them a significant amount of confidence for the game.

For their part, Everton will still have to muse over the possible absence of Baningime, McCarthy, and Jagielka, all of whom are mercifully back in training in one form or the other, so the squad remains relatively fit.

Forward Richarlison has proven to be a decent investment this season, and the Theatre of Dreams may be a worthwhile place for him to swagger ahead with his goal tally, while former Red Devil Michael Keane will also look to impress.

Goalkeeper: Pickford
Defenders: Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne
Midfielders: Gomes, Gayle
Forwards: Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Richarlison

Formation: 4-2-3-1
