With Manchester United registering three consecutive wins against Tottenham, Manchester City and AZ Alkmaar lately, the red devils will be hungry for more as they host Everton at Old Trafford.
In terms of the league standings, Ole Gunnar Sikjskaer’s United side resides at the fifth spot while being just four points away from fourth-place Chelsea. Meanwhile, Everton caused havoc in their most recent game against Chelsea as they pummelled them 3-1 at home to bring life into Everton’s League campaign.
Duncan Ferguson will want the Toffees to bring their A-game against Manchester United and try to get a positive result by the end of 90 minutes. With that win over Chelsea, Everton jumped from away from the relegation zone and is currently 14th in the league with 17 points.
