Manchester United vs Everton: team news, how to watch, one last chance (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are looking for all three Premier League points as they prepare to face Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United, despite the want to qualify for the Champions League next season, sit 11 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa as they chase Erik ten Hag‘s No. 1 goal for the remainder of the campaign.

They are preparing to face Everton at Old Trafford, and with back-to-back losses against Fulham and Manchester City in the competition, the chances of finishing in the top four are all but over without a win this weekend.

United have been hit with a number of injuries of late, although there is a chance that they can welcome back Rasmus Højlund in the next few days.

Here, UtdDistrict preview the Everton tie.

Team news

United have scored just two goals in three games since Højlund was ruled out through injury. However, they are hoping that he will be available to face Everton, with the player set to be assessed in the next 48 hours ahead of the tie.

Marcus Rashford played through a minor injury against Man City, and although Ten Hag expressed doubts over the winger’s fitness after the recent loss, he is expected to be fully fit and available.

They remain without Mason Mount, Tyrell Malacia, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Anthony Martial, and Lisandro Martínez, while Sean Dyche has ruled out two players for Everton.

A final chance

If United don’t win against Everton, that may be the final straw that kills Ten Hag’s chance of surviving under INEOS.

After back-to-back losses in the league, the one aim that may save him, Champions League qualification, may be too far gone, but beating Everton would help his case.

With United facing Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-finals in just over a week, a win against Everton would help give the side more hope.
