Manchester United VS Everton
Sunday (16/09/2017)
16:00 (WAT)
MANCHESTER UNITED will be looking to get back to winning ways against Everton after drawing 2-2 with the Stoke.

Wayne Rooney will return to Old Trafford for the first time since he rejoined boyhood-club Everton over the summer.

Jose Mourinho will be missing Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Marco Rojo.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman has no fresh injury concerns.

However long term absentees James McCarthy, Yannick Bolasie, Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori and Ross Barkley remain unavailable.


Facts
  • Manchester United have won 18 and lost just one of their last 24 Premier League home games against Everton, losing 0-1 in December 2013 while former Everton boss David Moyes was in charge of them.
  • Everton have lost more Premier League games versus Man Utd than against any other side in the competition (33).
  • The Red Devils’ 33 Premier League wins against Everton is the second highest total for one club beating another in the competition (Man Utd 34 vs Aston Villa).
  • Should Manchester United avoid defeat in this match, it’ll be the first time that they have remained unbeaten in their opening five games of a Premier League season since 2011-12.
  • Sunderland still have more Premier League away wins in 2017 so far (2) than Everton (1).
  • Everton have attempted just seven shots on target in their four Premier League games this season; a joint-low alongside Swansea City, with just one of these coming in their last two matches.
  • Jose Mourinho has faced Ronald Koeman more times without winning (5) than any other manager in the Premier League.
  • Romelu Lukaku has scored four goals in his first four Premier League apps for Manchester United, only two players have scored five goals in their opening five games for the Red Devils (5 – Louis Saha and Robin van Persie).
  • Lukaku’s next goal will be his 90th in the Premier League (currently on 89) and should he do it in this match, then he’ll be the fourth youngest player to reach 90 goals in the competition (24y 127d) after Robbie Fowler (22y 241d), Michael Owen (22y 324d) and Wayne Rooney (24y 35d).
  • Wayne Rooney (or Morgan Schneiderlin) could become the eighth different player to score against Manchester United having already played for them in the Premier League (Hughes, Dublin, Ince, Gillespie, Berg, Campbell and Welbeck).
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson has been directly involved in six goals in his last six Premier League appearances against Man Utd (three goals, three assists), including netting in his last appearance at Old Trafford in April for Swansea.
