Goes without saying they are going to sit back and try take a point here today. Maybe try get at us from set pieces, where we've looked really poor lately. It's not a tactic you'd normally associate with Everton at home but things have stalled slightly since Big Sam first come into the club. They've had a couple of poor results and have got Liverpool in the FA cup so Just maybe they will look at this as a point to gain rather then 3 to win.

For us if we need to play with tempo. Anything like that Southampton performance and we will be in trouble. Got to move the ball quicker and run in behind Williams and Keane. If Rashford/martial use their pace here we could easily score 3/4 but their movement has to be so much better then it's been lately. Need a big performance form Pogba today as well. Hope he pushes himself further up the pitch and tries to influence the game from there.

Can see this being a total bore fest, they’ll sit deep and look to hit us on the break.

We all know Rooney will score.

Herrera Matic

Team: De Gea, Lindelof, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Matic, Herrera, Mata, Pogba Lingard, Martial.

3-5-2 or 4-3-3?

looks 4-3-3 Pogba on the left of a 3 in midfield.

Mata right of the front 3 but the other 2 seem to be swapping positions.

So narrow wide players coming inside and full backs not really getting forward, going to have to really thread the needle to get through the middle here.

It's not been great, but better than expected given United's form and the congested fixture list.

Yeah another turgid half, we have looked okay at times but it’s not amazing. Think Herrera has done okay actually and Martial/Lingard have looked kind of lively.

Been the better side but haven’t really created anything clear cut.

Quality in final 1/3 needs to be much better.

Darmian on the bench while we play a centre back at right back.

Surely that’s his days numbered.

Everton playing 10 at the back. Gonna need something out of the ordinary to score.

Fresh legs urgently required up top and in midfield, we’ve not reacted well to the subs.

On the ropes and looks like our players legs have gone.

Martial off Rashford on

Midfield needs to get control of this game again.

Big 15 mind here we have to win this game.
