Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 4:10 pm GMT. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD.


Everton will be looking to close the gap on Arsenal for the fourth spot after suffering an ignominious defeat at home against Crystal Palace at home, which left them one point behind Arsenal, having played the same number of games.

The Gunners travel to Hull City on Sunday in a tricky fixture and Everton should be looking to make full advantage of any potential goof-up and take United to the sword.

The Toffees went two goals behind against palace but rallied to bring the deficit down to one. However, a third goal killed the tie as Everton suffered their first defeat at home in the calendar year.

This will be a major test for Roberto Martinez, who has branded David Moyes a failure after his first season at Old Trafford. A win here will condemn Moyes to further depths while keep Everton's hopes alive of qualifying for Europe.

United come into the game on the back of a 10 day gap after being beaten 3-1 by Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. With only 57 points after 33 games, their European hopes are going down the drain and Moyes needs to end the season on a high to keep the supporters from turning their back on him.

A win here will take United to 60 points, six behind Everton with a game in hand and eventually pip them for the fifth spot which looked a distant possibility a few days back.

What the Managers Say

Roberto Martinez: "Manchester United will finish the season strongly, I've got no doubts about that. Their next few games, I'm sure they're going to fight for a European place and to finish as high as they can. Even at this stage, they should be fighting for fourth place. It's ingrained in the DNA of Manchester United. It's not in doubt that they will be doing that and they will be challenging for the title again next season."

David Moyes: "First of all, the game is not about me, it's about Everton and Manchester United. I go there as manager of Manchester United and I'm delighted to be that. I was proud to be manager of Everton at that time but my job now is to make sure I get a result for United. The Everton fans were always terrific in my time there – very supportive and always right behind the team. We go there with a great away record and go there trying to keep that going. "
