Manchester United simply have to get back to winning ways this evening, when they take on Everton at Goodison Park in an extremely tough game.
Jose Mourinho has named his starting line-up, and sprung a couple of surprises. He’s in a tough spot right now, as the squad is looking rather thin on the ground in terms of both injuries and suspensions, so his hand was forced in a sense.
However, as you can see from the line-up below, it still looks extremely strong; and capable of securing all three points.

In goal, David de Gea starts. Luke Shaw gets the nod to play at left-back once again, with Victor Lindelof seeming playing on the right in the absence of Ashley Young. Marcos Rojo comes back into the team, with Phil Jones making up the back four.
Mourinho has named a midfield three which certainly makes sense for this game. Nemanja Matic will be at the base, with Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba just in front. This should allow Pogba more freedom to roam forward and do what he does best.
Juan Mata has been playing well lately so he will play, with Jesse Lingard starting on the opposite flank and Anthony Martial leading the line.
