Wayne Rooney’s return to the Theater of Dreams could be spoiled by Manchester United when they will welcome Everton this weekend. The Red Devils are already a centrifugal force in this season with their ruthless instinct with the addition of a number of players and looking in dangerous form.

Everton was supposed to have a better start having roped in a number of players in the summer but Ronald Koeman’s side have barely shown any intent in their playing style. There were, of course, some sort of changes but they have to be a little bit more consistent to put things into right places.

Everton come into the game having lost all the last three matches, the latest being against Atalanta in the Europa League group stage. It was supposed to be an easy ride for the Merseyside club but they struggled heavily to gain something from this match.

Predicted 4-2-3-1 Everton Starting Lineup Against Manchester United


Maarten Stekelenburg had a tough day handling the Atalanta attackers and he will be given a breather as we could expect Jordan Pickford in the goal against Manchester United. The youngster hasn’t lived up to the expectations.

Micheal Keane is set to continue in the backline. However, keeping in mind the threat of the young and fresh United attacking lineup, Ashley Williams should make it to the starting lineup. Leighton Baines will continue on the left side while Cuco Martina will join him as he has the physicality to match this kind of high-quality games.


As a measure of a prevention, Koeman is expected to use a double pivot. Morgan Schneiderlin and Muhamed Besic will be used to avert further danger in the midfield. Schneiderlin would like to make a statement against his former employer. The absence of Paul Pogba will give them more time to settle them in the middle of the park.


This will be the homecoming of Wayne Rooney who is expected to feature against his former team. The 31-year-old will operate from the right flank.

If Gylfi Sigurdsson is on song it would be pretty hard to stop him. The talented Icelandic playmaker will try to make things easy from the left flank. Davy Klaassen will get to start in his favourite no. 10 position and will try to muster attacks from there.

Summer signing Sandro Ramirez will start up front.
