Everton will lock horns with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon as they look to put in a solid performance on the road. The Toffees managed to secure an impressive 2-0 win over Norwich City last weekend which will give them some confidence ahead of this weekend’s Premier League showdown at the Theatre of Dreams.
Rafael Benitez could choose to set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and will probably name an unchanged team for this game. Hence, we can once again expect Solomon Rondon to lead the line for the Toffees in the final third.
4-2-3-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Manchester United
Jordan Pickford will feature in goal for Everton and can expect a busy afternoon in front of the Stretford End. Yerry Mina will once again play alongside Michael Keane at the heart of the Toffees defence as they try to keep the Man United attackers at bay throughout the game.
Ben Godfrey will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Lucas Digne fills in on the other side as the left-back. Benitez will instruct both of them to keep a solid shape at the back and not allow the Red Devils to gain any breathing room out on the wide areas.
Mason Holgate and Jonjoe Kenny will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Allan will anchor the midfield alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure as they try to make life difficult for the home side at the centre of the park. Both of them will have to work hard towards protecting their teammates at the back when Man United are breaking fast on the counter. The talented trio of Alex Iwobi, Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend will function just ahead of them as part of the Everton attack.
Both Townsend and Doucoure managed to get their names on the scoresheet against the Canaries, so they will be eager to produce another impressive showing in the Premier League this Saturday afternoon.
Tom Davies will have to be content with a place on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the second half if needed.
Salomon Rondon will spearhead the Toffees attack up top. Benitez would expect him to put in another energetic shift in the final third. Both Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are expected to miss this game as they are still out injured.
