After a difficult start to life under Erik ten Hag, United are back on form and could feasibly win a trophy for the first time since 2017 alongside qualifying for next season’s Champions League. While there is still a long way to go of course, there is a real feeling of momentum after six straight wins across all competitions either side of the World Cup interval.
Everton, meanwhile, are teetering on the brink of yet another crisis. Frank Lampard is under serious pressure and while their focus is clearly on staying in the Premier League, a dismal loss at Old Trafford would be another big blow.
