After a difficult start to life under Erik ten Hag, United are back on form and could feasibly win a trophy alongside qualifying for next season’s Champions League. While there is still a long way to go of course, there is a real feeling of momentum in the United ranks.
Everton, meanwhile, are teetering on the brink of yet another crisis. Frank Lampard is under serious pressure and while the focus is clearly on the Premier League, a dismal loss at Old Trafford would be another big blow.

Manchester United vs Everton team news
Ten Hag was coy about Donny van de Beek’s fitness following the nasty looking injury the Dutchman unfortunately picked up against Bournemouth. Whatever the eventual outcome, it seems unlikely the midfielder would play after such a blow amid a tight turnaround.
Anthony Martial, however, is likely to be available despite coming off injured against the Cherries.
For Everton, Amadou Onana is available after suspension and Ben Godfrey could return to the side, while Anthony Gordon may make a push following a recent bout of illness.
Manchester United vs Everton prediction
While United can surely expect a reaction from Everton following their 4-1 home defeat at the hands of Brighton, they have been far too good at Old Trafford this season to imagine there will be an upset.
Manchester United to win 3-0.
