Manchester United face Everton in Premier League action on Sunday, yet again desperately seeking a win to lift the doom and gloom that has surrounded Old Trafford for much of the season. After a brief flicker of hope on either side of the international break, Jose Mourinho’s side have settled back in to frustrating mediocrity. One win in their last seven matches is a return that reflects the current quality of the side.
Mourinho may finally drop the previously untouchable Romelu Lukaku, who has been in awful form lately. Marouane Fellaini is available for selection again after recovering from injury, so the big Belgian will be a useful option off the bench when United are chasing an equalizer in the last twenty minutes. The team is in a dire need of a shake up, but it’s been clear for some time that Mourinho is not the man to provide it. But we’ll be tuned anyway, because football fandom is some kind of sickness.
