Everton vs Manchester United: EPL line-up and result prediction

The Red Devils and Toffees both need a win as they meet in the EPL at Goodison Park.

Manchester United continue their search for early season form as they make the short trip down the M62 to face north west rivals Everton in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is feeling the heat in the Old Trafford hotseat after a dodgy start to the new campaign, both in the EPL and in Europe.

United were beaten 1-0 at home by Arsenal last weekend, leaving with one league win in their last four attempts.

It leaves the Red Devils scrabbling around in 15th in the early Premier League table, albeit with a game in hand on many of their fellow strugglers.

Solskjaer will at least have striker Anthony Martial at his disposal once again, with the Frenchman having completed a three-match suspension.

Victor Lindelof and Jesse Lingard, meanwhile, remain injury doubts for United. Everton have gone off the boil following a fine start to their first full season under Carlo Ancelotti.

The Toffees had a perfect record after four fixtures, only to slip to a draw then back-to-back defeats to see them drop down to fourth in the table.

Losses came at either end of the country against Southampton and Newcastle, leaving the Merseyside club with 13 points from their opening seven EPL games.

Main man Richarlison serves out the final match of his suspension, although Lucas Digne returns from a one-game ban.

James Rodriguez is touch and go for a return from injury, with defenders Seamus Coleman and Ben Godfrey in the same position for the visit of United.
