How Manchester United could line up against Everton

Sports Mole looks at how Manchester United could line up in Sunday's Premier League clash with Everton.

Manchester United will go in search of their third straight Premier League victory when they welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils have beaten Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City in their last two league matches to move into fifth position in the table.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side also secured first spot in their Europa League group by recording a 4-0 win over Dutch outfit AZ at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

The 20-time English champions will now switch their attention back to the league, where things are looking much better following two excellent victories in the space of a few days.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the home side could line up against the Toffees.

Jesse Lingard's fitness is perhaps the main talking point ahead of Sunday's contest, with the other 10 spots in Solskjaer's first XI seemingly locked down for the clash with Duncan Ferguson's side.

The Englishman has been unable to train this week after picking up a muscular problem against City, and it seems unlikely that he will be handed a starting role this weekend, meaning that Andreas Pereira, who impressed against AZ, could earn a recall in the number 10 position.

Paul Pogba and Eric Bailly have both stepped up their recovery from injuries, but neither will be involved this weekend, while Diogo Dalot, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Marcos Rojo are still on the sidelines.

Only Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial are certain to keep their spots from Thursday's clash with AZ, with the likes of David de Gea, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James and Victor Lindelof all set to return.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka was excellent against City and will start at right-back, while Fred and Scott McTominay will continue their partnership in the middle of the park.

Luke Shaw should also be given the nod over Brandon Williams and Ashley Young at left-back having come through the clash at the Etihad Stadium with no problems following a long spell on the sidelines.
