Manchester United confirm Erik ten Hag XI to face Everton (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have confirmed that Erik ten Hag will start Bruno Fernandes as a false nine as they welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Despite their desire to secure a spot in the Champions League next season, Manchester United find themselves trailing by 11 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.

Pursuing Erik ten Hag‘s top priority for the rest of the season, they are gearing up to confront Everton at Old Trafford. Following consecutive defeats against Fulham and Manchester City, their hopes of securing a top-four finish are on the brink of collapse, making a victory this weekend imperative.

“I think Sean Dyche is doing a great job,” Ten Hag told club media ahead of the fixture. “From the moment he came in last season, to build the foundation, he made a very fit team.

“You see his style is really handwritten [on the team] and that particular style. They are playing well so I think we have to play our best again to get the right result.”

The XIs for the tie have been confirmed.
