Everton take on Manchester United in the Premier League at Goodison Park on 4 December, Sunday.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 12.30pm GMT. Live coverage of the match will be available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the match will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live. Catch the highlights on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One at 10.30pm GMT.


Everton come into this fixture after suffering a narrow 1-0 defeat against Southampton in the last league tie at St Mary's Stadium. Josh Sims was close to scoring his first goal for the Saints on his first-team debut, only for him to be denied by Charlie Austin, who headed the ball in front of the post.

The Merseyside club were off to a flying start to this campaign, but their progress have now been hindered by a series of mixed results. Everton managed only one win in the last eight league ties and that win was at home against West Ham United.

Ronald Koeman saw his side keep a clean sheet against the Hammers and that was the only clean sheet they managed to keep in those eight fixtures. The Dutchman will be hoping his side can avoid another defeat when they host the Red Devils on Sunday.

United are high on confidence following their 4-1 comfortable victory over West Ham United in the EFL Cup quarter-final clash. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial were on the scoresheet as the duo scored two goals each to help their side progress to the last four of the competition.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was the star player for United as the Armenian registered two assists. He bagged his first man of the match award in a United shirt and he is likely to start against Everton at Goodison Park.

What managers say

Ronald Koeman: "We have some players close to the end of their career but still they are important players for the team. They are players with a lot of personality. Of course we look to the squad and we look what we need. It is impossible to change everything or to change a lot in one summer. We need at least this winter and we need the next summer. That is also about the older players. We have Phil [Jagielka], Gareth [Barry], Leighton Baines that are more than 30, but of course Baines is still in a good physical way, Jagielka is in a good physical way and Gareth is still the player who runs the most distance in the game," Koeman said, as reported by the Telegraph.

Jose Mourinho: "I had so many great matches there. Some I lost, some I won, but always a great match. Goodison Park is beautiful, it is a great crowd, it is a historic stadium for my country. Eusebio scored 4 goals there in one match in the World Cupin 1966. The way United is playing, combined with the way Everton always try to play, means it should be a very good match," Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
