Match Preview: Everton vs United

David Moyes looks set to be greeted by a hostile Goodison Park crowd upon his return to his old club. Marouane Fellaini and Wayne Rooney are also ex-Everton, and both will probably receive similar treatment from the fans that once adored them. This is a game United simply have to win for their sake.

David Moyes has to get his tactics absolutely spot on tomorrow. Many fans are still questioning his ability as United manager, and there has even been talk of Roberto Martinez replacing the Scot at Old Trafford in recent weeks.

We can still catch Everton though, and now that has to be the aim for Moyes and the lads to save a bit of face before the summer.
