Everton will travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United on Sunday afternoon hoping to pick up another win under their interim manager Duncan Ferguson. The Toffees will come into this encounter at the back of a 3-1 victory over Chelsea earlier this month.

The Merseyside club will set-up in a 4-4-2 formation with Leighton Baines likely to start if Lucas Digne fails to recover from his knock this weekend.

4-4-2 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Manchester United


Jordan Pickford will operate in between the sticks for the Merseyside club despite failing to keep a clean sheet versus the Pensioners last weekend. Ferguson might opt to play Michael Keane and Mason Holgate once again as his centre-backs. The defensive duo will have their hands full while up against Man United’s Anthony Martial.

Lucas Digne is a major doubt for this game after he picked up a knock in the win over Chelsea last Saturday. If he doesn’t make it on time, then Leighton Baines will fill in for the Frenchman as the left-back. Djibril Sidibe will get the nod to start in the right-back position.

Ferguson will demand a solid performance from his defenders as they attempt to restrict the in-form Man United attackers from scoring this Sunday.


Morgan Schneiderlin will anchor the midfield alongside Gylfi Sigurdsson who will play with a bit more freedom at the centre of the park. The midfield duo will be responsible for stopping the Red Devils from dominating possession in midfield. They will also need to pass the ball accurately if the Toffees are to carve out some decent goal-scoring chances this weekend.

Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott will look to stretch the pitch out on the flanks and whip in some dangerous crosses into the Man United penalty box.

Tom Davies and Bernard will be available on the Everton bench and might come on to make an impact if required.


Ferguson will once again unleash Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison as his strikeforce up top. Both forwards got their names on the scoresheet versus Frank Lampard’s men last weekend which will give them a confidence boost heading into this clash.

Cenk Tosun and Moise Kean will have to settle for a spot on the bench.
