Royston Drenthe scored his second Everton goal in sis appearance in the game against Fulham. His two goals have come from just five attempts, with four on target

The Dutchman has also been turning provider, laying on three assists for his team mates and averaging a pass in his opponents half every 4 minutes 14 seconds. He is now Everton’s top ranked player in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index in 101st place, and was named in the Index’s team of the week.

Jack Rodwell also scored his first goal of the season against Fulham. The young midfielder has been excelling in defensive duties so far this season, making 11 interceptions and winning 87% of tackles attempted

Manchester United suffered a heavy derby day defeat against Manchester City in their last outing, and will need to bounce back at Goodison Park to maintain their title aspirations

Manchester United covered just 106.09km in that game, their second lowest tally of the season, with Darren Fletcher covering the most ground with 11.29km

Yet Everton must be wary of a back lash from a squad which still contains three of the top ten players in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index

Everton’s defenders will need to be on their guard, as United have the two most prolific crossers in the league in Ashley Young and Luis Nani, who have both put in 37 crosses so far this season.

Nani is also in second place for most dribbles completed (34) and Young in fourth (33)
