Man United Team News vs Everton: Shaw, Maguire, Rashford, Amad

Share

Before Manchester United head to international break, they have one more match, at home versus Everton. This northwest England series is one that they have definitely dominated lately, losing just once of their last 12 league matches, winning six and drawing five.

The only L in that span came at Goodison Park in 2019, but it was by a resounding 4-0 score line. Toffees manager Rafa Benitez has lost seven of his last nine away to United in league play, with his only Ws coming as Liverpool leader in 2009 and as Chelsea boss in 2013.

Team News for Both Sides

United enter this one having won a match last night that frankly, they really didn’t deserve to win. But hey, we’ll take it. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that the believes his two long term injury absentees, Marcus Rashford and Amad Diallo, will return to first team action after the international break.

Left back Luke Shaw could be in contention here to return from injury, but given the heroics of his replacement, Alex Telles last night, there is certainly no need to rush him back.

Team Captain Harry Maguire was not called up to England for this set of internationals, due to injury, so it is fair to say he won’t feature in this one.

For Everton, Seamus Coleman, Fabin Delph, Richarlison (one of their most important players) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are all out injured.

Meanwhile Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Andre Gomes are doubts for this one.

Prediction: United 3, Everton 1

Under Solskjaer, United have done enough to let him keep his job, but disappointed enough to keep a large section of the fan base angry. It’s a results roller coaster, up and down, up and down, and that will continue here.

  2. Daba simon says

    Man utd is bigger than Ole,At least we need a coach that has more experience on how to combine and manage big players

  3. Deven SAWMYNADEN says

    As a ManU supporter, I believe we actually have a solid team but however does not match the coach! We deserve someone more experience that can finally win us trophies. Enough of the inconsistency….so Ole must be replaced!

  4. Cliffeton Allanzinho says

    Ole is just westing us we give up on him we need someone to make united to win trophy but ole is just act like a tourist

  5. Ohenzuwa osarhenoma Harry says

    As a man United fan I suggest Ole should go because he has no experience to manage big team like United but the cabals in the helms of affairs in United are playing politics with it..

  6. As a United fan I don’t see anything wrong with Ole. Infact he has done enough to keep the team improving. However injuries sometimes can ruin ones plans. I am 100% confident that Ole our legend is going to succeed at Man U. We need to sign 3 important players: defensive midfielder, right back to give Wan bissak some needed back up, and a striker of Halaand calibre to replace Martial who might leave for regular football.

  7. Yes I agree with Alex kithi, you all will agree with me that we as manchester united fans only started watching exciting manchester united performance since ole took over the club compared to recent coaches since Sir Alex.. the team is improving we need to give ole a little more time, this team isn’t winning the premier league this season because this team is still progress on the way.. with more signings maybe next season ole will give us the trophies we’ve so much hungered for

  8. Let’s give Ole this season to prove his self
