Everton welcomes Manchester United to Goodison Park for matchday 8 of the English Premier League (EPL) as Ole Gunner Solskjaer faces Carlo Ancelotti's side.
AllNews understands that Everton has dropped from being league leaders after two consecutive losses in the EPL 2020-21 season which could be attributed to the loss of some vital players to injury including James Rodriguez.
Carlo Ancelotti's men would be expecting a difficult match at the Goodison Park facing one of the traditional 'big 6' in the English Premier League.
Everton is 4th on the EPL table with 13 points from 7 games - 4W, 1D, and 2L - scoring 15 goals but conceding 11 goals.
The Goodison Park outfit highest scorer is Dominic Calvert-Lewin as the English man has scored 8 goals in 7 games for the Toffees.
United is 15th on the standing with 7 points from 6 games with a game at hand due to UEFA participation scoring 9 goals and conceding 13 goals.
The Red Devils' highest scorer is Bruno Fernandes as the Portuguese is also their penalty taker.
Carlo Ancelotti said that James Rodriguez back and would be available for selection except for Fabian Delph and Richarlison.
According to the report from Goodison Park, Seamus Coleman, James Rodriguez, Mason Holgate, and Lucas Digne are back for selection ahead of the United game
With all the important players back, we should see the same Everton that started the season on high with Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring and Digne crosses, and James game control.
Most of the activity will be in the midfield where James, Doucoure, and Allan will be - against Bruno Fernandes, Greenwood, Fred, and McTominay.
United is not far from the relegation zone and it would be much of a survival instinct versus title race at the Goodison Park.
The match also will determine if Ole Gunner Solskjaer will keep his job or be sent out of Old Trafford but it also speaks on United as a team in the traditional big 6 of England.
A loss at Meyerside could result in United dropping deep into the relegation zone or finishing very low with no hope of UCL qualification.
Not much could be said about Manchester United after the loss at Basaksehir but they need to focus on the next game or it would be more or the same for Old Trafford.
