The first meeting between the sides earlier this season ended 1-1 but both teams have changed their manager since then.

What time does Everton v Manchester United kick off?

Everton v United will kick off at 12.30pm.

For the Old Trafford fixture, United had to navigate a tight turnaround between a Wednesday night Champions League game and the early Saturday kick off.

This time around, it is Everton facing that schedule, having played at Burnley on Wednesday night, losing 3-2 in a crucial game at the bottom of the table.

United of course had a free midweek after their elimination from Europe in the last round.

Everton v Manchester United team news

Ralf Rangnick has already said that Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit to play in this one after missing the Leicester clash through ilness.

Unfortunately, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay, who all started against the Foxes, will miss out here.

Shaw is out for two to three weeks with an issue related to his leg break during Louis van Gaal’s reign, while McTominay has discomfort in his foot.

Edinson Cavani will also miss out, while it remains to be seen if Jesse Lingard is recovered from the illness which meant he was only on the bench last time around as a formality, according to Rangnick.

Donny van de Beek is ineligible according to the terms of his loan, and injured in any case.

Our prediction

United played the first hour of the Leicester game like it was a testimonial.

That was when they actually had more to play for in the top four race, but it is to be hoped that the performance is more intense here regardless.

Everton’s confidence is on the floor but it is their home form which will keep them in the Premier League and Goodison Park should be up for this.

United have to stand up to that and then show their quality in a battle between two sides who have underachieved this season.

Our prediction: Everton 1-2 United
