The Toffees will come in to the on the back of a awful run of results.

However, we are going for a home win in this fixture as our prediction.

Wayne Rooney makes a return to his old stomping ground as Everton visit Old Trafford and ex-player Phil Neville has warned Manchester United that their former captain will be desperate to score for the Toffees on Sunday.

The returning Liverpudlian will be respected and get the reception he deserves by United fans on Sunday.

And the club believe that the 24-year-old's decision to train privately with a personal trainer, something which United's backroom staff advised against, made him more vulnerable to picking up muscle injuries. The France worldwide could be out until late October, according to recent reports.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo continue their recoveries from knee ligament damage.

Luke Shaw, on the other hand, recovered from his injury and will be available for selection.

"We know him really well".

GGG vs Canelo: Gennady Golovkin ready for 'biggest night in boxing'
De La Hoya doesn't shy away from hyperbole, calling the bout the biggest the division has ever seen. I'm very confident because of the work and the training and everything I put in for this fight.

Mauricio Pochettino admits he does not know when Danny Rose will return
Llorente explained : "The truth is Chelsea have been after me for a long time but at the end you know how this works". But Kane scored in the last minute and Pochettino believes that to be a turning point in his time at the club.

India sees threat from Rohingyas' terror links
Some 40,000 Rohingyas have settled in India, and 16,000 of them have received refugee documentation, the United Nations estimates.

Rooney has taken a locker in that particular room at club level on just two previous occasions, the most recent of which was the aforementioned outing on Boxing Day 2003.

The United manager is insistent that his team's success or failure will not depend exclusively on the form of their main striker, pointing out that they only finished sixth in the Premier League last season despite the contribution of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 28 goals in all competitions. There is enough talent on the squad to turn things around, but right now Everton do not scare anyone. He has nothing left to prove and has been unfortunate to not feature for the Red Devils in the opening games of the 2017/18 campaign.

Ronald Koeman will be without Ross Barkley, Funes Mori, Yannick Bolasie and Seamus Coleman for the clash against the Red Devils as they are all out with injuries. But The Red Devils will return home, and will try to remain ideal at Old Trafford when they host Everton.

Everton are coming off three straight losses across all competitions, and have not scored a single goal during that streak.

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard insists that Romelu Lukaku will not be fazed by the prospect of facing former club Everton for the first time since his move.

Last season, both league games between these two sides ended in 1-1 draws.

Manchester United have no suspension issues prior to this encounter.
