Everton should go to Man Utd on front foot, says Martinez

Everton manager Roberto Martinez believes the Toffees need to approach the reunion with former manager David Moyes, now in charge at Manchester United, with a positive, attacking mindset, the Guardian has reported.

The sides meet on Wednesday, the first time Moyes has come up against his pervious employers since decamping to Old Trafford in the summer to replace Sir Alex Ferguson. Everton are higher placed in the Premier League table ahead of the game, with the champions in eighth, two points and three places behind fifth-place Everton.

It is more than 20 years since Everton won away at United, however, and under Moyes Everton had similarly poor records in away games with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool. With Everton due to travel to United and Arsenal in quick succession this week, Martinez is aware of the impact the next few days can have on the campaign. “This week will have a huge bearing on our season,” he said.

It would be very easy for me to play it down but we are going to go to Old Trafford and the Emirates,” Martinez continued. “They are games that we are not expected to win but, clearly, if we want to achieve something special, we need to be able to break the mentality of going to the big grounds and getting some wins.

Over the last 10 years we have not beaten Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool at their grounds and we need to address that,” the former Wigan Athletic boss added. “We need to make sure we are ourselves. We need to know how we are going to play and who we are. We are excited about going to Old Trafford.

Martinez, who replaced Moyes at Goodison Park, has suffered only one defeat in his short time as Everton boss - away at Manchester City in a game that saw the Toffees take the lead through Romelu Lukaku, only to lose 3-1.
