MANCHESTER UNITED host Everton in the early kick-off TODAY as they aim to continue their push for Champions League qualification.
The Red Devils ended their three-game goalless streak on Wednesday night when Marcus Rashford scored the only goal in their 1-0 win over Brentford.
They take on a Toffees' side coming off the back of a late Michael Keane screamer which equalised with Spurs.
The last time these two sides met at Old Trafford it ended in a 3-1 victory for ten Hag's men in the FA Cup.
But the introduction of Sean Dyche since then has made Everton look a more forbiddable opponent.
United's crucial three points against Brentford last night put them three points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place with a game in hand.
