A high flying Manchester United side play host to Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday in the Premier League.
Manchester United are on a three-game winning streak in all competitions which include wins over Tottenham Hotspur and noisy neighbors Manchester City in the top-flight. On the other hand, Duncan Ferguson Everton will come into this game with a spirited win over Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend after the club dismissed Marco Silva for a poor run of form.
Coming up against Everton, United will face a side that are high in confidence as they continue to play for the veteran in-charge of the team while Manchester United also play to put pressure on the top four spots.
The Toffees would need to be wary of the threat from Marcus Rashford. The England international has 10 goals from 16 games already equalling his best tally with 22 games still to come.
