Everton host Manchester United at Goodison Park in the Premier League, in what is a massive game for the Red Devils.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have only seven points from their opening six Premier League games, and have once again been plagued by inconsistency.

Manchester United have picked up just one Premier League point from their last two games - at home against Chelsea and Arsenal. That Premier League run was overshadowed by two magnificent UEFA Champions League wins against Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig.

But on Wednesday, Manchester United lost 2-1 to Istanbul Basaksehir, and that has once again put the limelight on Solskjaer's job security.

Everton have gone off the boil since the international break, having got only a point from three games since then. The absence of key players such as James Rodriguez, Richarlison and Lucas Digne has been felt by Everton in the last two games, which they lost to Southamton and Newcastle United respectively.


Everton vs Manchester United Head-to-Head

Manchester United have beaten Everton 88 times in 203 meetings between these two sides. There have been 45 draws between Everton and Manchester United, while the Toffees have won 70 games against the Red Devils.
