Man United vs Everton LIVE: Premier League updates

Solskjaer on Utd improvements ahead of Everton

Manchester United host Everton in the Premier League with both clubs having the chance to top the table if they claim the win.

United, currently fourth, head into the match off the back of a league defeat after Aston Villa scored at the death to win 1-0. And Bruno Fernandes’ missed penalty meant they took no points away from the match. The Portuguese international is sure to be called upon this weekend but one player who may once again miss out is Donny van de Beek.

The midfielder showed his frustration about being left on the bench during United’s Champions League win against Villarreal and it’s safe to say manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hasn’t reacted well: “I’ve got a squad of internationals and if we’re going to be successful we need positive energy, no sulkers. Donny has never affected his teammates negatively. As soon as I see players affecting the team negatively then that’s a different scenario and I’ll probably be firmer.”

Solskjaer will have to calm the unrest in his squad if he is to defeat Rafa Benitez’s Everton who have had a strong start to the season. They are currently fifth following four wins, one draw and a loss. A worry for the Toffees though comes through injuries as Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Seamus Coleman, Richarlison and Andre Gomes remain out and Alex Iwobi is in doubt for the clash. Ahead of the trip to Old Trafford, Benitez said: “I will say that he has a little problem, I don’t know if he will be available for tomorrow.”

Man Utd 0 – 0 Everton – chance!

6 Mins: Aaron Wan Bissaka does brilliantly down the right, before standing up a teasing cross to the far post.

Anthony Martial meets it with a very tame – and some might say rusty – header.

It bounces harmlessly wide, but the warning bells will be going off already for Rafa Benitez.

A bright start from United, who are very much on the front foot inside the first few minutes.
