Manchester United vs Everton - LIVE!

Man United and Everton both have the chance to got top of the table when they meet at Old Trafford this lunchtime.

United go into the weekend in fourth place, with the Toffees fifth on goal difference but so congested is the top of end of the Premier League that just one point splits the top six.

However, with Liverpool and Manchester City playing each other tomorrow in another clash of the two north-west cities, there is an opportunity for someone to gain a march on their rivals.

United needed a stoppage time winner from Cristiano Ronaldo to come from behind and beat Villarreal in the Champions League in midweek, and while that goal sparked raucous scenes at Old Trafford, anything other than a win today will see more questions asked about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s suitability to lead the club forward.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer speaking to BT Sport...

"Part of it was really good. We started well, high energy and scored a fantastic goal.

"Second half we lacked the cutting edge which is vital in a game like this.

"We gave them a few counter attacks, I know we had the ball most of the time and they countered. We need to be better.

"Anthony did well, could have had one or two more. Very good goal, how we played and switched it."

14:43 , Jack Rosser

Cristiano Ronaldo stormed off immediately after the full time whistle.

“That reaction, he [Ronaldo] wants to win the league,” said Jermaine Jenas on BT Sport. “He’s not here for anything else but to win a league title, and he understands how to win a league title, so he’s fuming.

“That, for any manager, is a blessing, I would say. He’s got to manage it, Ole, now, but he’s got one of the most notorious winners to ever have played the game and he’s lucky to have him, so he’s going to be upset about today.”

14:39 , Jack Rosser

Andros Townsend speaking to BT Sport..."Going into the game with the injuries we would accept a point but when you go to Old Trafford and create the chances we had, on another day it could be three points.

"No disrespect, this guy is my idol. It was a bit of respect to Cristiano, it is an honour to be on the same field as him."

FULL TIME | Manchester United 1-1 Everton

14:24 , Jack Rosser

A very well deserved point for Everton at Old Trafford!

14:20 , Jack Rosser

90 mins: Four minutes added on at Old Trafford.

RULED OUT

14:15 , Jack Rosser

That was tight, so tight, but a correct decision. Davies should have shot.

GOAL! Manchester United 1-2 Everton

14:15 , Jack Rosser

85 mins: He looks offside, surely, but Yerry Mina for the moment has put Everton ahead...

14:13 , Jack Rosser

84 mins: United are pushing for a winner here and Pogba should really do better as he sends a free header well wide at a corner.

WATCH: Townsend levels it

14:05 , Jack Rosser

Superb goal on the break from Everton.

14:04 , Jack Rosser

74 mins: Was that his chance? Sancho plays Ronaldo in down the left and while it is a tight angle you’d expect him to hit the target, the No7 drags it across the goal however.

14:02 , Jack Rosser

73 mins: A change for Everton as Davies comes on in place of Gordon. Pogba has also entered the fray in place of Fred.

GOAL! Manchester United 1-1 Everton

13:54 , Jack Rosser

65 mins: Townsend again! What a break from Everton. Townsend keeps his head and has the cheek to pull off a Ronaldo celebration in the corner!

13:47 , Jack Rosser

57 mins: It’s a double change for United. Ronaldo replaces Cavani while Sancho is on for Martial.

13:45 , Jack Rosser

56 mins: Sancho will be joined by Ronaldo in coming off the bench soon.

13:43 , Jack Rosser

54 mins: Not much to shout about early in this second half but Jadon Sancho is getting ready to come on.

SECOND HALF

13:35 , Jack Rosser

We’re off once more.

About time...

13:26 , Jack Rosser

Anthony Martial’s strike was his first goal for Manchester United since scoring in February in the 9-0 against Southampton.

WATCH: Martial gives United the lead

13:22 , Jack Rosser

A good time to get his first of the season!

HALF TIME | Manchester United 1-0 Everton

13:19 , Jack Rosser

Martial’s goal separates the sides after an entertaining first half.

13:16 , Jack Rosser

43 mins: The Toffees defenders down the right get dragged inside and leave Martial in acres, he runs onto the ball and smashes it goalwards. The ball takes a small deflection but it’s the Frenchman’s goal.

GOAL! Manchester United 1-0 Everton

13:14 , Jack Rosser

43 mins:What a hit from Martial! Some way to get back into form.

13:08 , Jack Rosser

36 mins: This is a very open game! Another chance for Everton as a cross from the right finds Doucoure in the box but Wan-Bissaka is there with a crucial block.

13:06 , Jack Rosser

34 mins: Greenwood goes into the book after bringing Gordon down. The Everton winger has been lively so far.

13:05 , Jack Rosser

33 mins: Another chance for Everton! Gray bursts through the middle and fires a low effort at United’s goal but De Gea is equal to it.

13:03 , Jack Rosser

32 mins: That’s not a bad chance for Everton! Gordon gets in down the left and crosses from the byline but neither Rondon or Townsend can really get to it and the chance goes begging.

13:02 , Jack Rosser

30 mins: A break in play here after some handbags following a challenge on Dinge by McTominay.

12:59 , Jack Rosser

27 mins: Some smart build-up play from United as Greenwood rakes a huge diagonal over to Martial, he cuts back for Fernandes whose ball back is quickly played to Wan-Bissaka but he swings and misses and it’s out for a goal kick.

12:53 , Jack Rosser

21 mins: That was close! Cavani peels away from Keane and has a free header towards the corner but Pickford does well to get down and turn it behind for a corner. Cavani probably should have done better there.

12:48 , Jack Rosser

16 mins: Good look for Everton there. Townsend wins a free-kick down the right after being brought down by Shaw and his cross finds Keane, who sends his header just wide of the far post.

12:46 , Jack Rosser

15 mins: Everton starting to see a bit more of the ball now as Greenwood has to get back and hook away a cross from Gray. Wan-Bissaka looking sharp for United so far.

12:41 , Jack Rosser

9 mins: Another good move from United ends with Greenwood flashing a cross across the Everton goal but there’s no one gambling to get on the end of it.

12:38 , Jack Rosser

6 mins: That should be 1-0 United! Wan-Bissaka does superbly to skip past Dinge and lifts a wonderful ball to the back post for Martial, but his header is mistimed and way off target. Should have done much better.

12:35 , Jack Rosser

3 mins: Manchester United playing the better football very early on. Shaw is back in the side and drives into the area via a smart exchange of passes with Fernandes, though his final ball has too much on it and Pickford collects.

KICK OFF!

Everton get things going at Old Trafford!

12:27 , Jack Rosser

Fine tuning

12:19 , Jack Rosser

Some final preparations at Old Trafford.

Slice of history

12:18 , Jack Rosser

Rafa Benitez could become the first manager to win at Old Trafford with THREE different clubs if Everton take all three points today.

Benitez has won at the Theatre of Dreams with Liverpool and Chelsea in the past. How he would love another here today.

Up for grabs

12:07 , Jack Rosser

It may be early in the season, and it may only prove to be for a rather short while, but the winner here today has the chance to go top of the table this afternoon.

Chance to shine

11:57 , Jack Rosser

The Everton team news brings a first Premier League start since December for Toffees youngster, Anthony Gordon.

There’s a lot of excitement around the 20-year-old, and what a stage to make your mark on as a young player.

Waiting game

11:55 , Jack Rosser

Cristiano Ronaldo will make his 200th Premier League appearance should he get a run out this afternoon.

The Portuguese won’t be hitting the landmark as soon as he would have hoped, however.

Freshening up

11:46 , Jack Rosser

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been explaining his decision to drop Ronaldo and Pogba to the bench.

"Wednesday was a big effort, a big emotional and physical output. We needed to freshen it up when it is an early kick-off. We've got some very good players coming in. We believe it is a team that is going to take charge of the game.”

Date, kick-off time and venue

10:50 , Jack Rosser

Manchester United vs Everton is scheduled for an 12:30pm BST kick-off at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Early team news

10:40 , Jack Rosser

Luke Shaw is an injury doubt for Manchester United. Shaw missed the 2-1 Champions League win over Villarreal through a combination of illness and injury and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not yet sure whether the left-back will be available.

If Shaw does not make, Alex Telles will continue at left-back after scoring against Villarreal.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is available after serving a European suspension in midweek.

Marcus Rashford has returned to training for the first time since shoulder surgery, although the England international is not yet match fit and this game will come too soon for him.

Harry Maguire remains sidelined.

Good morning!
