Manchester United vs Everton: How to watch live, stream link, team news

Manchester United host Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday and both teams need a win for very different reasons.

The pressure is on late in the season for both the Red Devils and the Toffees.

Erik ten Hag saw his side grab a hugely important 1-0 win at home against Brentford in midweek as they continue to scrap with Tottenham and Newcastle for a top four finish. The display was much better from United after they were run ragged by Newcastle in their defeat at St James’ Park last weekend. Marcus Rashford is once again their main hope and United will be aiming to put a bit of pressure on their top four rivals by winning the early game in Matchweek 30.

10-man Everton secured a late comeback draw against Tottenham on Monday as Michael Keane spanked home a stunner in the 90th minute to grab a deserved point for Sean Dyche’s side. They are still in the relegation scramble but have become much tougher to beat and there is a growing belief around Goodison Park that they can stay out of the relegation zone for the rest of the season. Still, they are only outside of the bottom three on goal difference heading into this weekend.

United sit in fourth place, three points above fifth-place Tottenham who they also have a game in-hand over. But this top four race is going to be so tight as Newcastle are level on points with Manchester United but the Magpies have the edge on goal difference. There is a real scrappiness about this United side which was surprisingly missing at Newcastle but Erik ten Hag demanded a reaction and he got it against Brentford. They miss Casemiro badly in midfield but this is the final game of his four-match suspension for a red card against Southampton on Mar. 12.

Everton are struggling to score goals which is the main reason they are in the relegation scrap. However, in midfield they look very solid with Idrissa Gana Gueye, Amadou Onana and Abdoulaye Doucoure striking up a great partnership. They will have to do without the latter for the next few games after his red card for lashing out at Harry Kane. Defensively Michael Keane has been excellent, so too has Jordan Pickford in goal while Alex Iwobi covers so much ground and has taken his game to a new level this season.
