After beating Brentford midweek to reclaim the fourth spot on the Premier League table, Manchester United turns attention to the league game against Everton next.

All that was required to put the two teams apart was Marcus Rashford’s half-volley into the roof of the net. Still, the Red Devils were once again obliged to David de Gea, who made a critical save in a one-on-one situation with Kevin Schade to prevent the Bees from taking home a portion of the spoils.

The Red Devils chase back-to-back league wins for the first time since the wins over Leeds United and Leicester City in February.

Everton are without a win in the last two games they have played in the Premier League while they have only won once in the last six games, beating Brentford at home last month.

Erik ten Hag’s team can extend their unbeaten run at Old Trafford to 24 games when they face Everton in the Premier League in Saturday’s early kickoff.

Man United haven’t suffered a home loss in 23 games after a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad in September. This streak includes 13 Premier League games at Old Trafford without a loss, and Ten Hag’s team can be proud of three clean sheets in their last three games in front of the home crowd.

Everton always seemed likelier¬†to score the game’s second goal against Tottenham, who had absolutely no new manager bounce at all, even with 10 men on the field after Abdoulaye Doucoure inexcusably clawed Harry Kane — who promptly opened the scoring from 12 yards.

Lucas Moura’s sending-off, just six minutes after being brought on, was key to Everton getting back in the game. Michael Keane, on the receiving end of the Brazilian’s red card-worthy challenge, unleashed a thunderbolt into the far corner in the 90th minute as the Spurs defence continued to retreat.

The game against United is a perfect opportunity for the Toffees to get back to winning ways while the fourth-placed side will be keen on holding on to their hopes of playing in the UEFA Champions League next season.

The earlier meeting in the league between these two sides ended 2-1 in favour of Man United at Goodison Park.
