Team news for United v Everton

United boss Jose Mourinho intends to bring the pair back in central defence on Sunday.

The last time Manchester United hosted Everton the game ended with a 1-1 draw.

But Mourinho still thinks Rooney - who notched a record 253 goals during his 13 years with the Red Devils - has plenty to offer in the top flight.

Much like Jose Mourinho today, money was spent addressing apparent weaknesses in the ranks.

Both Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo have been on the treatment table for some time, and it seems that when it comes to Shaw at least, Mourinho is hopeful he can be back in contention for a place soon. Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is fighting a similar problem, although the Swede has refused to put a date on when he might return to fitness.

Everton have been a bit inconsistent this season, as they have mixed some impressive displays with some really poor ones.

Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof came in to help secure a clean sheet during the Champions League clash in midweek but the duo could still drop out on Sunday.

"I just know that it's a muscular injury, he's out for the weekend match, that's the only match I'm thinking about".

'I feel good and I feel my movements are there.

James McCarthy is a doubt due to a knee injury. "But we know he can finish when he does get chances, he's just got to do it consistently.".

Long-term issues plague Yannick Bolasie, Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman.

Wayne Rooney makes a return to his old stomping ground as Everton visit Old Trafford and ex-player Phil Neville has warned Manchester United that their former captain will be desperate to score for the Toffees on Sunday.

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.

The France global will miss United's next three Premier League fixtures against Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace, as well as their trip to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

"I think this Premier League is much more defensive-minded, and much more hard".

United's league record had been ideal until they were held to a 2-2 draw at Stoke last Saturday, although the disappointment of conceding twice was mitigated by the impressive scoring form of Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.
