Predicted Manchester United lineup vs Everton
With Daley Blind shaking off his hamstring injury, he should be fit enough to oversee Manchester United’s defense against Everton this weekend. Matteo Darmian impressed for Italy, and he would hope for a better performance for United in his next game.
Marcos Rojo was caught in a smoking controversy earlier today and his place is in the starting XI is a debatable call, however, given the lack of options for Van Gaal, we may see Rojo start this weekend.
Bastian Schweinsteiger was on course to play this game but for his injury during the Internationals have ruined those plans. Instead, Morgan Schneiderlin will pair with Michael Carrick to guide Manchester United’s midfield vs. Everton.
Juan Mata is the big casualty from the starting XI as his good pal Ander Herrera gets ready to take Mata’s place in our Predicted Manchester United lineup vs Everton. Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and the 18-year old Marcus Rashford have been constants in United’s lineup and they are expected to start against Everton as well.
