Manchester United will travel to Goodison Park to clash heads with Everton on Sunday looking to return to winning ways after a dismal away performance against Barcelona in midweek. The Red Devils were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League so they can now solely focus on clinching a top 4 spot at the end of this campaign. However, it won’t be an easy task to secure a win versus the Toffees as Marco Silva’s men are quite hard to beat at their home turf.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to opt for a 4-3-1-2 formation and might ask Romelu Lukaku to lead the line alongside Marcus Rashford up front.
4-3-1-2 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Everton
David De Gea will start in between the sticks for the Red Devils despite putting in a dismal performance against Barcelona in midweek. The Spanish international will be supported by the centre-half pair of Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof as they both look to put on a much-improved display versus the Toffees this weekend.
Luke Shaw is suspended for this clash so Ashley Young might operate as a makeshift left-back once again. The English talent had a nightmare game on Tuesday night as Lionel Messi got the better of him time and again down the wide areas. Hence, he could be a bit low on confidence for this match at Goodison Park.
Diogo Dalot will lineup on the other side as the right-back as he looks to be a constant threat for the Everton defenders down the right wing.
Solskjaer might choose to go with the midfield three of Paul Pogba, Fred and Scott McTominay as they try to stop the Everton midfielders from getting a stranglehold in the game. Pogba has been quite inconsistent of late, but he did score a brace against West Ham United last weekend.
Juan Mata will have to settle for a place on the Man United bench but might get a chance to come on later in the game if needed.
Jesse Lingard might get the nod to play in the number 10 position while the duo of Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku tries to wreak havoc in the final third. Rashford needs to step up and make a significant contribution in this upcoming league clash at Merseyside after a couple of underwhelming displays wearing a Man United shirt.
