The Red Devils lost their 100% start to the Premier League season last weekend when they were held by Stoke City. However, they recovered well to beat FC Basel 3-0 in the Champions League and they would be in high spirit when they welcome an underperforming Everton to town in this game.
The Red Devils will also be facing Wayne Rooney for the first time since they allowed him to join the Toffees this summer, while Romelu Lukaku will be facing his former team for the first time also. Manchester United have a solid home record against Everton with 18 wins from their last 24. They have also won three and drawn three of their last 6 meetings with the Toffees.
Everton has been less than impressive for a team who spent almost 150 million in this summer’s transfer window. They started the season well and kept 3 consecutive clean sheets, but that form has disappeared, they have conceded three goals in their last two matches and they have not won any of their last five matches.
The pressure is on Ronald Koeman to turn things around and there are talks of him getting the sack in the next few weeks. It would be hard for them to get back to form in such a difficult game.
