Greenwood And Matic To Start, Mata And McTominay Drop Out: United’s Predicted XI To Face Everton

After a convincing victory against Club Brugge midweek, Manchester United will head into this weekend’s match versus Everton high in confidence.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to recall Victor Lindelof in defence, with Eric Bailly missing out. Luke Shaw will likely keep his place ahead of Brandon Williams after an impressive run of form, with David De Gea returning in goal ahead of Sergio Romero.

In midfield, Scott McTominay is unlikely to start his second game in four games following two months out with a knee injury. Nemanja Matic could come into the team alongside Fred, with Bruno Fernandes playing in the most advanced role.


Up front, Anthony Martial’s absence due to a thigh problem means Odion Ighalo is poised to stay in the starting line up at Goodison Park. Despite his good performance against Brugges, Juan Mata may well be left out in favour of Mason Greenwood, with the forward able to provide a greater threat on the counter-attack.
