Two relative out-of-form sides play each other at Goodison Park this afternoon as Everton host Manchester United.
With just two Premier League wins between them out of a combined fifteen games, both desperately need points here in order to keep up with those ahead of them.

James McCarthy is fit enough to be among the subsitutes in what is otherwise a full-strength starting eleven from Everton.
For Man United meanwhile, José Mourinho has finally answered the prayers of the fans. Henrikh Mkhitaryan starts a Premier League game for just the second time this season.

The Armenian international had a starring role in Man United’s 4-1 win against West Ham on Wednesday and is given the nod, along with the equally impressive Anthony Martial.
Wayne Rooney, however, drops to the bench, as does Juan Mata, with Marcus Rashford also among the substitutes.
