Manchester United will be looking to keep their top four hopes alive when they travel to Goodison Park to meet Marco Silva’s Everton this afternoon.
United’s form has dipped since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was handed the manager’s job on a permanent basis, with five defeats in their last seven games in all competitions. They were knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona in midweek, and have work to do if they want to be back in Europe’s premier club competition next season.
Currently sixth in the Premier League, Solskjaer’s men sit two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, and have the daunting proposition of a Manchester derby against title-chasing rivals Man City to come next week.
Everton, meanwhile, had been showing signs of improvement after a run of three successive wins, including triumphs over Arsenal and Chelsea. However, last week’s sorry defeat to already relegated Fulham has halted their momentum and left them a point of Leicester in seventh in the race to be the best of the rest.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to drop Ashley Young after his Barcelona nightmare. Full back Young struggled in Manchester United’s Champions League quarter-final exit as Lionel Messi ran riot at the Nou Camp.
And after his disappointing performance, Solskjaer is ready to take the England international out the limelight against Everton on Sunday.
Marcos Rojo is the most likely player to come into the side, with Luke Shaw still one game away from returning from his suspension – with Matteo Darmian another option. Argentine Rojo made his first Premier League start since since December during the Red Devils 2-1 victory over West Ham last weekend.
Solskjaer could turn to Alexis Sanchez and Nemanja Matic after their respective injuries – with both starting on the bench against Barca. But the Norwegian is likely to stick with Scott McTominay, Fred and Paul Pogba rather than Matic in midfield.
Likewise up front, Romelu Lukaku will be flanked by Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, with Sanchez primed to come off the bench.
“Nemanja and Alexis had a good session yesterday as well, so they will probably be involved,” Solskjaer said in Friday’s press conference.
