Everton v Manchester United: match preview

Ole Gunnar Solskjær issued a public apology and threatened a clear-out after the 4-0 humbling at Goodison Park last season. The exodus never materialised but Sunday’s return is opportunity to demonstrate that, with Bruno Fernandes making an immediate impact and United unbeaten in seven matches in all competitions, lessons have been learned and progress is being made. Defeat at Arsenal last Sunday delivered a reminder of Everton’s shortcomings and confirmed Carlo Ancelotti was right to ignore the hype about Champions League qualification. The Europa League is his target and he could do with a repeat of last season’s victory to ensure it remains a realistic one. Andy Hunter
