The Red Devils have had a torrid season domestically and have already lost three of their opening six league matches.

Their run of form has also dipped spectacularly, with Solskjaer’s men succumbing to a 1-0 league loss to Arsenal last weekend followed by losing 2-1 at Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League just three days later.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under immense pressure but there is no time to mop as the games keep coming thick and fast.

Ahead of the game against Everton, Solskjaer will be boosted by the return of Anthony Martial who served a suspension after being red-carded in the humiliating 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

United played the narrow diamond formation in their last three games but that has largely proved ineffective and it is highly likely Solskjaer will switch it up a bit.

It is highly likely the gaffer will revert back to the 4-3-3 formation, with Martial leading the attack.

David De Gea is set to make a return after being left out of the mid week Champions League fixture against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Full back Alex Telles was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 and the game against Everton comes too soon for him although he is on the road to recovery.

In defence, Harry Maguire is likely to be partnered with Alex Tuanzebe as Victor Lindelof is likely to be sidelined after picking up a back injury.

The likes of Edinson Cavani and Odion Ighalo will probably make the bench once again with Solskjaer having the luxury of calling upon them if need be.

For Paul Pogba, his recent dip in form could see him start the game from the bench and the gaffer is likely to partner Scott McTominay and Fred in the holding positions as the pair have impressed in recent games.

Possible line up: De Gea (GK) Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan Bissaka, Harry Maguire Alex Tuanzebe (Defenders) Scott McTominay, Fred, Bruno Fernandes (midfield) Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood (forwards).
