Man United vs Everton: 3 Potential Replacements for Paul Pogba

Wayne Rooney returns to Old Trafford as an opposition player for the first time in over 13 years when Everton visit Premier League leaders Manchester United for what is expected to be an emotional game on Sunday.

Everton will face Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Carrick is yet to start a game this campaign but at 36-years-old, Mourinho knows when the flawless time will be to use his wealth of experience and expert passing in midfield. The Belgian has provided a focal point in attack, and he has scored four goals in four league games.

Paul Ince is backing Manchester United to beat Everton in what the retired midfielder considers to be "the game of the week".

"I think clearly he is one of the most important players in the history of Manchester United".

Kleberson and Bellion were actually among the goals, with their two efforts on the day representing a third of the collective total they managed in Premier League competition throughout two rather forgettable spells at Old Trafford. He allows the likes of Pogba and Fellaini to push forward, while he would be given the chance to take up a free role next to the more defensive-minded pairing of Michael Carrick and Matic.

Lukaku has hit the ground running since his £90m switch from Goodison Park this summer, scoring six goals in as many appearances for United to help them set the early-season pace in the Premier League.

United are in great shape while Everton's form has nose dived in recent weeks to give the hosts a significant psychological edge. He is playing well, there is a good relationship between the way our striker and the way the team plays.

"So it's not just the striker". United have the upper hand with 85 wins, while Everton have emerged victorious 69 times with 43 draws between the teams.

He has scored nine goals for club and country this season, and I think his price of [1.81] to find the net in 90 minutes is more than fair. "We couldn't be happier".

Mourinho refused to compare both players but puts the issue into context by claiming Lukaku is better served by his colleagues than the Swede was.

"I said several times last season he is a real finisher". Everton have gone into a tailspin, and although Koeman remains confident the decline won't last, I'd be very surprised if Old Trafford provides the light at the end of the tunnel. When players are so different, there is no point in comparing.

'I will go through everything, it doesn't matter what's in my way, I will break everything to reach my goal.
