Picking the Best Potential Manchester United Lineup to Face Everton on Tuesday

​Manchester United will look to close the gap on the top four to two points as they face Everton at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.


Jose Mourinho's men have drawn 11 games this season and they cannot afford to drop any more points if they want to finish in the Champions League places.

​David de Gea will be between the sticks for United, their last resort of a pretty mean defence. The Spaniard will need to be weary of Evertonian Romelu Lukaku who has hit a purple patch of late.

Jose Mourinho is likely to stick with the same back four that played against West Brom on Saturday afternoon.


Luke Shaw's future at the club has been put in major doubt as his manager recently criticised his ambition and focus in training, which means Ashley Young is set to feature at left-back in midweek.

​After being pictured training after the match on Saturday, don't be surprised to see Paul Pogba selected in the starting XI against Everton as he has returned from a hamstring injury that he picked up in the Europa League.


One player that will feature is Ander Herrera as he is back from his two match ban.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to make his return to the starting lineup as he has already served his three match ban.


It's been revealed that Juan Mata will be a long-term injury so Mourinho might go with pace on the wings with Lingard and Martial getting the nod for this week's league match.​
