The Premier League returns this weekend as Manchester United travel to Merseyside in what will no doubt be a hostile atmosphere at Goodison Park.

The Toffees faced a 10 point deduction after breaching financial rules last week, dropping them into the relegation zone along with Sheffield United and Burnley.

Despite this, Everton are currently one of the in-form sides in the Premier League, having only lost one game out of their last five league fixtures.

The away side however, also come into this game in good spirit, winning four of their previous five.

Team news

Everton could face being without star youngster Amadou Onana in the midfield after he was withdrawn from the Belgium squad during the international break following an ongoing calf problem.

The Toffees could see captain Seamus Coleman featuring in the squad this Sunday with him recently being involved with the under 21’s to build up fitness.

As for the away side, Luke Shaw could be fit to play for the first time since their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham back in August.

However, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund may miss the fixture. The Cameroonian goalkeeper picked up a shoulder injury during the international break but is deemed to be ‘not serious’. It looks less likely however, for the Danish number 11 to make an appearance who is suffering with muscle strain.


Ones to watch

Manchester United will have a lot on their hands defensively with The Blues having a variety of names on the scoresheet in recent fixtures.

Since being able to stay fit, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been banging in the goals for The Toffees, as well as Abdoulaye Doucoure who has been playing a more advanced role under manager Sean Dyche.

The away side will have to be wary of Everton’s aerial presence, particularly from set pieces and crosses which they’ve been dangerous from all season.

With Hojlund looking set to miss out, it gives the chance for Frenchman Anthony Martial to shine. The number nine will be looking to utilise his pace to get in behind the Everton defence should he start.

Where to watch

The match will be live on Sky Sports Main Event, with the game kicking off at 4:30pm and coverage beginning at 4:00pm.

John Brooks will be the referee with Chris Kavanagh on VAR duties.
