Following two straight defeats at the hands of Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir, Manchester United face a tough away fixture against Everton in the Premier League.

The Red Devils continue to struggle with finding consistency and could do with a win this week with many feeling Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may see the exit if his side's poor results continue.

Team news

Victor Lindelof is expected to play having missed Wednesday's defeat to Istanbul due to a back problem, but that is thought to have just been a precaution. Meanwhile, deadline day signing Alex Telles could return to the squad following his isolation period after he tested positive for COVID-19.

Solskjaer also has Anthony Martial at his disposal as the striker is now available having served his suspension.

Everton will also be boosted by first-choice players making a return to action. Fullbacks Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne are likely to start as they return from injury and suspension respectively. 

Key man James Rodriguez has also been deemed fit for this game alongside Andre Gomes, Ben Godfrey, Mason Holdgate and Tom Davies. However, Richarlison is unavailable as he continues to serve his three-match ban.

Predicted lineups

Everton: Pickford, Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne, Allan, Doucoure, Gomes, Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Iwobi.

United: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford, Martial.

Ones to watch

Mason Greenwood has a point to prove following his omission from Gareth Southgate's latest England squad ahead of the upcoming Nations League fixtures and could get his name on the scoresheet in a return to the starting lineup.

Everton's biggest threat is undoubtedly Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The England international is in the form of his life as he tops the scoring charts with eight goals in seven games so far this season.

James Rodriguez could also be one to look out for as he returns from injury. The Colombian has recorded three goals and three assists in the league and will look to pick up where he left off before his injury.

Prediction

Everton 2-2 Manchester United.
