Securing their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League in some style in midweek, a resurging Manchester United will welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
Eventually landing a 4-0 win over AZ Alkmaar on Thursday night, there is no doubt that the former Premier League champions will still be boosted by their shock 2-1 win away at bitter rivals and defending champions Manchester City last weekend.
On the flip side, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will not be the only side who should be boosted by a shock victory last time out.
Sending shockwaves across England after putting in a season-best display in their 3-1 victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park last weekend, caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson now has his sights firmly set on widening their buffer over the drop zone.

Richarlison to steal the show?
While the mood in Everton’s camp might have been at a continued low prior to Marco Silva’s exit, few across the Premier League would have expected their stellar display last weekend.
Putting in a season-best display and picking up a thumping 3-1 win over Chelsea last time out, caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson appears to have breathed new life into Everton’s season.
