Manchester United are riding high on confidence ahead of their league game against Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Red Devils had dropped their first points in the league last weekend when they drew 2-2 at Stoke, but they got back to winning ways with a 3-0 win over Basel in Champions League. As things stand, Jose Mourinho’s side occupy the top spot in the league table ahead of local rivals City on goal difference.
United didn’t concede a single goal in their first three games, and Stoke are the only side to have scored against them this season. Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four league goals this season, will be leading United’s lines against his former club.
The Toffees will come in to the on the back of a terrible run of results. They haven’t won the in the league since the opening day, and with four points, they find themselves in the 16th spot.
In their last two games, they have been humbled by Chelsea and Tottenham respectively, and on Thursday, they lost 3-0 at Atalanta in Europa League. Manager Ronald Koeman must have had spent a huge amount of money on signings, but Lukaku’s departure appears to be having a bigger impact on the Toffees. The Merseysiders have struggled to score goals this season, and have managed only two goals in four league games. Ironically, both goals were scored by former United star Wayne Rooney.
Last season, both league games between these two sides ended in 1-1 draws.
