Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to recall Paul Pogba to the starting line up, when Everton visit Old Trafford tonight. The Toffees are fresh off the back of the 2-1 win over Leeds in midweek, as they look to forget last weekend’s 2-0 defeat to Newcastle.
Yet United are also hoping to ensure they have put the defeat to Sheffield United and draw with Arsenal behind them, following the 9-0 demolition of Southampton.
Pogba was on the bench against the Saints but is now fully recharged for the challenge ahead.
While United’s players were exceptional, Pogba’s impact in the past few weeks on the side is unlikely to go unnoticed.
The back four is expected to remain the same with Luke Shaw in the best form of his career.

The Uruguayan was forced off against Southampton following a knock to the ankle.
Solskjaer was optimistic the injury would not balloon and said: “Edinson got a bad tackle on his ankle so he had to come off.
“He probably would have loved to be out there, scoring goals, but there was no point in taking any risks. Hopefully, it won’t swell up too much.”
Cavani was pictured in training at Carrington meaning he should be ready to start the match.
There is a chance he could be left on the bench though if Fred keeps his place alongside McTominay.
United are currently three points adrift of City, who have now put their early season form behind them, but Pep Guardiola’s side do have a game in hand.
But with City playing Liverpool this weekend, it could be the perfect chance for United to close the gap permitting the result goes their way.
Expected United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; Pogba, McTominay; Martial, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani.
