The Reds so far

The in-form Manchester United have made the best start to the Premier League season since Ferguson.

[spacer height=”20px”]

United top the table with 10 points in 4 matches scoring 12 goals and conceding only twice. The Red Devils are barely ahead on goal difference from their city rivals Manchester City before Saturday’s match.

Jose Mourinho’s boys are high on confidence having beaten FC Basel in their previous Champions League clash with  a 3-0 scoreline.

The Reds will be keen to bounce back to winning ways in the Premier League after Stoke City broke their 100% start to the season.

Everton’s start to the season

[spacer height=”20px”]

Everton started their campaign as early as July for the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round.

The Blues beat Slovakian side MFK Ruzomberok and Hajduk Split of Croatia to advance to the group stages of the Europa League.

[spacer height=”20px”]

The Toffees kicked off their Group E campaign away at Atlanta where they faced a 3-0 defeat.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Everton made a poor start to the season having gained 4 points in as many games hanging at 16th position of the League table.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Everton suffered three consecutive losses in the previous matches against Chelsea, Tottenham and Atlanta, this being the first time for the Blues under Ronald Koeman.

Ronald Koeman would be hoping to turn the table at Old Trafford and return to winning ways.

Familiar faces

[spacer height=”20px”]

A number of players from both the teams will take on their former clubs in the Sunday clash between United and Everton.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Wayne Rooney and Romelu Lukaku have swapped their teams this summer and will be facing their former employers and colleagues.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Lukaku’s Belgian compatriot Marouane Fellaini will face his former club Everton after joining Manchester United in 2013.

[spacer height=”20px”]

While Morgan Schneiderlin will appear against United having played for them before joining the Blues.

Past Clashes

[spacer height=”20px”]

Manchester United have a mixed all-time record against Everton having won 85 matches, drawn 44 and lost 66 matches in total of 195 matches since 1892.

[spacer height=”20px”]

However, Manchester United have lost only a single match in the last six games against Everton.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Moreover, Everton have beaten the Devils only twice at the Old Trafford in the Premier League era.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Match Referee

[spacer height=”20px”]

Andre Marriner will be officiating over the match between Everton and the Reds.

[spacer height=”20px”]

The 46-year old FIFA official will oversee his 4th Premier League match in this season.

[spacer height=”20px”]

The man from West Midlands will be assisted by Simon Beck and Andy Halliday, with Jon Moss on fourth official duties.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Marriner handled five United games in the 2016/17 season including the EFL Cup win over Southampton.

[spacer height=”40px”]

The stastistical record between Mourinho and Koeman stands at 5 matches with the Portuguese won none of the matches.

[spacer height=”20px”]

This could be the perfect time for Mourinho and his men to get back on track in the English top-flight.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Our newly acquired striker is in good form having scored 4 goals in 4 matches so far in the 2017/18 season.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Fans would be hoping hot-form players such as Rashford and Mkhitaryan again give a confident and stellar performance at Old Trafford against the Merseyside.

[spacer height=”20px”]

 

Though being a Red fan, I would still like to see Wayne Rooney perform well in the match.
