Last season’s matches between Manchester United and Everton were memorable for one side and memorably painful for the other.
The David Moyes factor made last season’s meetings all the more interesting, with Everton coming out 1-0 winners at Old Trafford in December, before inflicting a 2-0 defeat on Moyes at Goodison in April.
And that just so happened to be the Scot’s final match of his ill-fated spell in charge at Old Trafford, setting the wheels in motion for a huge summer of change.
Louis van Gaal has since been appointed and has overseen a huge outlay of more than £150 million on new signings.
It will be a very different United side that line up when Everton visit Old Trafford at midday tomorrow and will be a good indication as to just how much has changed since the two disappointing meetings last season.
For Everton, Roberto Martinez has overseen a slow start and is keen to see his side recapture the sort of form that saw them narrowly miss out on the Champions League last season.
Whilst tomorrow will prove a big test, there could be no better way to kickstart their season than with a win at Old Trafford.
In anticipation of tomorrow’s game, we have identified the combined Manchester United and Everton XI.
