Manchester United will look to maintain the positive momentum and register their fourth consecutive win across all competitions this weekend.

The Red Devils are flying high at the moment, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the first manager to beat Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola in the same week, defeating Tottenham and Manchester City in the previous two Premier League rounds.

Paul Pogba is still unavailable for selection, but is set to start full training, along with Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah, while Jesse Lingard will be assessed ahead of the game.

Everton

Everton responded well to the managerial change, beating Chelsea 3-1 at Goodison Park in Duncan Ferguson’s debut in the hot seat.

However, the Scottish coach himself believes the club should appoint someone proven, with 2010 Premier League winner Carlo Ancelotti being one of the top candidates.

The Toffees travel to Old Trafford without former Man United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, Theo Walcott, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Andre Gomes, looking to register back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Keep an eye on

Marcus Rashford has already equalled his best-ever Premier League goal tally in a single season with 10 goals in 16 appearances.

The Englishman has found the net seven times in eight league outings at Old Trafford and 10 times in his last 10 starts across all competitions.
