Manchester United host Everton in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday, as they look to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table.
The Red Devils are on a high after a magnificent 9-0 win over Southampton in their last game. The Saints were down to ten men in the second minute of that game, after Alex Jankewitz’s red card.
After that, Manchester United put their foot on the accelerator and ran riot. Eventually, Southampton finished the game with nine men, as Jan Bednarek got sent off too.
That result made Manchester United the top goalscorers in the league this season, while also doing a massive amount of good for their goal difference at this stage of the season.
Everton, too, come into this game on the back of a win in their last game. They beat Leeds United 2-1 at Elland Road, with first-half goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Raphinha pulled a goal back for Leeds in that game, but they couldn’t manage to draw level.
That result lifted Everton to sixth. They are now just four points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, and have two games in hand as well.
