Our predicted Man Utd XI vs Everton is now in, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately needing a win here to steady the ship.
Manchester United’s Premier League form has been simply depressing. Pressure is mounting on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Everton away is hardly an ideal fixture, but that’s the situation we’re in.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side has been on a two-game slump recently, though they’ll be boosted by the return of Lucas Digne. To get a much-needed three points in this one, the Red Devils are going to have to be at their absolute best.
Goodison Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground of late. This weekend, it’s an absolute must-win situation for the Baby Faced Assassin. If we don’t win all three points here I’ll seriously be fearing for his job over the international break.
The good news is that his squad is in pretty decent shape, giving Solskjaer a whole host of options in regards to formation and personnel. Simply put, he has no excuses if we drop points here.
Anyway, after much deliberation, this is the team we’ve gone with. United will stick with their trusty 4-3-3, with the side jam-packed with familiar faces who propelled us into the Champions League places at the back end of last season. When in doubt, stick with what you know, right…?
Predicted Man Utd XI vs Everton in full:
David de Gea will return and play in between the sticks. I’ll assume he’ll be rather busy this weekend, but we’re going to need a top performance from him.
In defence, Luke Shaw plays at left-back. He was probably our best player last time out. Aaron Wan-Bissaka starts at the right-hand side of the defence. Harry Maguire will captain the team as per usual, with Victor Lindelof overcoming a bad back to start.
Scott McTominay wasn’t great against Istanbul Basaksehir, but he’s the best option we have in that deep midfield role. Fred deserves to come back into the side, while Bruno Fernandes always has to start.
Anthony Martial is fresh off his domestic ban and he’ll be looking to kick-start his season with a huge performance here. Marcus Rashford will play on the left-wing, with Mason Greenwood making up the front three.
As per usual these days, we have an awful lot of quality on the subs bench. I’m looking at Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani as the real difference-makers.
