    Everton Football Club (nicknamed The Toffees and The Blues) are a professional football club based in Liverpool, England, and were founded in 1878 as St Domingo's, a sports club for people from the parish of St Domingo's Methodist Church. Everton was a founding member of The Football League in 1888–89, and became the second club ever to be crowned champions of England, after Preston North End in 1888–89, before winning their first FA Cup 1906.

    Historically, Everton are one of the most successful clubs in the country, having won 9 League titles, a European Cup Winners' Cup, 5 FA Cups, and 2 League Cups - while hosting the talents of Dixie Dean, Gary Linekar, Alan Ball, Neville Southall, Kevin Ratcliffe, and Wayne Rooney. Everton have play their homes games at Goodison Park since 1892, after moving from Anfield following a row over its rent. Their biggest rivals are neighbours Liverpool, against whom they contest the Merseryside Derby.

    Difficult one.

    Everton are a nothing side this year, spent a lot of money on players to be objectively worse than they were last year.

    No pace, no creativity, nothing special defensively, should be a United win.

    However I can see us arsing around and it being a lot more difficult than it should be.

    Big early season game.

    Hope José sticks to the 4231 regardless of Pogba playing or not. Fellaini or Herrera starting in his spot if he's out.

    Mata a must start if Pogba's out just to have some creativity out there.

    Mata offers nothing on the right, and Young deserves a start after today, it's not like Blind or Darmian have made LB their own.

    Watch for Rooney to score an own goal. It should be part of the deal.

    I'll be seething if we don't comfortably beat them. They are a fecking dreadful outfit.

    Rooney might not start I suppose. He might still be fecked from the night before.

    Everton are terrible. They'll set back all the game and they aren't even that good in counters anymore thanks to Rooney. If break their defense we'll be fine.

    2-0 for us hopefully.

    Big advantage, two more resting days for us, unless Everton starts most of the second team against Atalanta on Thursday night, away.

    Forgot to say, even though I hope we go with 4-2-3-1 because I'm sure as hell Everton won't even bother to attack and their counters are terrible, won't be surprised if Herrera resting today is due to Jose planning to play him this game.

    The pre-march presser will be painful. Will be all about Rooney. I feel pity for Jose from now tbh.

    If (big if) the game strategy fancies Herrera, he might have a chance, but I doubt it and it would more sense to play 4-3-3. He's not out of the team now due to thoughts about resting him.

    We'll only know when the game comes, but made me thought so is I remembered last season when he rested Herrera against Anderlecht to keep him focused for the Chelsea game. Everton isn't Chelsea, though.

    Don't get me wrong, that's also the only doubt I have about the lineup, but after this Fellaini showing… at home, against his former team…

    Agree with your thoughts and said it previously. Fellaini with Matic in a 4-2-3-1 and we should go one. Nothing to be feared in this Everton team, except for Sigurdsson free kicks.

    They'll just set back and defend as deep as possible. We won't have any trouble taking control of the midfield so no need for the 4-3-3.

    But we might fancy a quick start, imposing our speed to surprise them and take advantage of their presumed lack of freshness, then Herrera's high recoveries would come handy.

    That's a point, but I think if we have to choose between one of the two it'll probably be Fellaini due to their free kicks and corners so that what happened against Stoke doesn't get repeated.

    Unless Everton sign Antonio Valencia before kick off, we'll be alright.

    And even then, he'd have to remember how to cross like he did back then, so it's a bit of a long shot.
