This is the 14th time in PL history that the sides have met at Old Trafford in a televised league match. United’s record is: W11, D3, L0 (GF 34, GA 11) from those matches, and a failure to add to that win tally here could well see the ‘Special One’ José Mourinho become the ‘Unemployed Zero’.
United’s record in the final third against Everton is as good as ever, with the ‘Red Devils’ scoring in each of their last seven encounters with the ‘Toffees’ (in all competitions) and scoring first in six of their last seven competitive H2H matches (W5, D2).
Everton, with an away record of: W1, D2, L1, have dropped four points out of a possible nine from winning positions, but (since the start of 2017/18) still have a decent record from away PL games in which they have led at half-time, which reads: W2, D2, L1.
The Toffees last turned zero away points into three back in August 2016 – a whole 41 away league games ago! However, Everton have found the net at least once in eight of their last nine away league games, averaging exactly 1.5 points per-game from those goalscoring awaydays.

Players to watch: Former Evertonian Romelu Lukaku is desperate to regain form, but scored in last season’s corresponding fixture.
Jordan Pickford saved a penalty in Everton’s victory over Crystal Palace last weekend, and will certainly be kept busy, having thus far shipped 12 goals to United as a PL goalkeeper.
Stat attack: Five of United’s last seven matches (in all competitions) have seen both teams score.
Remarkably, 11 of the last 12 H2H PL games that have produced a winner have been won to nil.
Everton’s overall PL away record against United stands at: W2, D5, L19.
