The Red Devils beat Villarreal at the death on Wednesday in Champions League action but Everton’s injury list means both teams will not have their best availability for a match that could separate two 4-1-1 sides.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Manchester United vs Everton.
Premier League news
Manchester United team news, injuries, lineup
Marcus Rashford and Amad Diallo are out while Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw missed midweek Champions League action and look very unlikely to feature. Shaw has the best chance to play Saturday.
Everton team news, injuries, lineup
The Toffees might’ve not played at midweek but the absences are still piling up as Richarlison, Andre Gomes, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Fabian Delph, and Seamus Coleman are either out or very likely out and Jordan Pickford is a question mark.

There’s reason to believe Man United could slip up following midweek play, but they weren’t exactly at their best on Wednesday and will likely fire on more cylinders, especially with Everton likely without many key players. We reserve the right to alter this prediction if Rafa Benitez’s injury update says there are surprise returnees. Manchester United 2-1 Everton.
