Manchester United will be hoping to continue their unbeaten run in the Premier League when they host Everton on Sunday. United all-time record goalscorer and former captain and mascot Wayne Rooney will likely be afforded a hero’s welcome in his first visit to Old Trafford as an opposing player since 2003. Former Everton front man Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to be greeting as warmly by the traveling support, but if continues his current streak of 6 goals in 6 games, we’re sure he won’t mind too much.
The big injury news is of course the injury to United’s midfield maestro Paul Pogba. Either Ander Herrera or Marouane Fellaini (or both, depending on how the team lines up) is expected to start in his place. In encouraging injury news, frequently sweaty disgrace and part-time footballer Luke Shaw is available for selection, but next week’s League Cup tie is a more likely opportunity for a first appearance of the season.
For Everton, they will be hoping to reverse a slightly alarming trend of three losses in a row. Ronald Koeman is yet to find the right balance in his signficantly changed squad. Rooney has hardly been impressive for his old club, which virtually guarantees that he will be useless on Sunday as well - right up until he scores a late equalizer.
