Everton

Everton made it five matches unbeaten in their quest for a top half finish as they recorded a 1-0 win over Burnley at the weekend. As well as that unbeaten run, Everton have now scored in each of their last five matches which is currently only beaten by Liverpool (8 ), Arsenal (12) and chelsea (19) in the premier league. The Toffees are now unbeaten in all seven league matches at Goodison Park (W3, D4) in 2015 which is a feat only conquered by Arsenal (9) and Chelsea (16). Arsenal (18), Chelsea (16) and Manchester United (15) are the only Premier League teams to pick up more points from their last six matches than Everton (13) and only Chelsea have conceded fewer goals in that time frame. Everton have the opportunity to register three home league wins in a row over Manchester United for the first time since November 1984 - September 1987 when Everton actually managed to win four in a row at home against the Red Devils.

Possible Line ups




Manchester United

A Mourinho special put an end to six league wins in a row from Louis Van Gaal's United side who went down 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, despite enjoying 71% of possession. That defeat was just their fourth away loss of the season which is something only Chelsea themselves (2) can better in the Premier League though victories away from Old Trafford have been slightly more difficult to come by as alongside Sunderland, Manchester United have drawn seven of their matches on the road this season. Manchester United have only lost once against a team in the bottom half this season (only beaten by Arsenal, 0) and that came in a bizarre 5-3 defeat against Leicester back in September. Manchester United top scorer Wayne Rooney has only managed four goals in 17 matches against Everton since leaving the blues and he hasn't scored at Goodison Park for 8 years with his last goal at Goodison Park coming in April 2007 with a 4-2 victory.

I'm interested to see how Lennon does here. He's played himself into form over mediocre opposition over the last few weeks and Man United have been strong down their left hand side lately so it'll be interesting to see what kind of performance he can put in.

I didn't watch it like but apparently so.

That United defence looks almost bad enough that Distin or Alcaraz would be an improvement.

Wonder how we'll handle the long diagonals to Fellaini on their left (our right). Might be a tricky afternoon for Seamus and Stonesy.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.

I don't hold a lot of hope for this one, I think we'll give it a go but they will win fairly comfortably in the end. United are on it and were very unlucky against the inevitable champions.

We should have beaten them earlier in the season when we were rubbish. I don't see why we can't enter this fixture with the intent to exact some revenge.

They could easily be in for an emotional letdown after the Chelski match, too.

If we go for a specific plan I'd imagine we'll drop Barry back for goal kicks etc.

Or in open play we might have to go back to 4-2-3-1 and have Barry on the right of McCarthy.

If we don't have a specific plan then we need to make sure that the second recipients are marked.

Felli's ok with the ball but he's much better when bringing it down then giving it to the more technical players.

It was usually the second ball that killed teams when he was doing it for us, as you say, and teams who stopped him successfully usually almost gave him the first ball and had that the second ball covered. We haven't got anyone who can live with him in the air, so that makes the most sense.
