Everton: Tom Davies returns in potential XI vs Manchester United

Everton: Tom Davies returns in potential XI vs Manchester United

Everton travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in Duncan Ferguson’s second game in charge as caretaker manager.

Their win over Chelsea was a marked improvement on previous performances and helped elevate them out of the relegation zone.

The Toffees face a Carabao Cup quarter-final with Leicester in midweek, but their focus will be firmly on climbing the Premier League table.

They face opponents in top form, though. United put in two of their best performances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to defeat Tottenham and Manchester City.

So how will they lineup?

Yerry Mina has only taken part in light training so Mason Holgate may deputise once again. Lucas Digne and Djibril Sidibe look settled at full-back, with the former hoping to recover from the knock that forced him off against Chelsea, while the latter is likely to be tasked with handling Marcus Rashford, who is in the form of his career at the moment.

Rashford’s form could bring about a change in the Everton midfield. Bernard could replace the injured Theo Walcott as he did last weekend to help Sidibe deal with the England international. He’s got seven goals in his last eight league games for the Red Devils and has excelled from the left-wing. Sidibe will need the extra support.

Elsewhere, injuries to other central midfielders such as Morgan Schneiderlin should give Gylfi Sigurdsson and Tom Davies midfield berths, with Alex Iwobi wide on the left.

Through the middle, the pairing of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin tore apart the Chelsea defence at Goodison Park. Calvert-Lewin scored twice, with the Brazilian getting the other, so they should be full of confidence for their visit to United.
