Champions League hopefuls Manchester United are due to play against high-flying Everton in a Premier League clash at Goodison Park on Sunday.

United enter the game in good form after having won their previous two league games against Watford and Chelsea.

They also enter their contest against the Toffees on the back of a morale boosting 5-0 win over Club Brugge.

The Red Devils will have to make do without the services of Anthony Martial for their clash against the Toffees, according to BBC Sport. The Frenchman suffered a muscle injury whilst training. 

The report went on to add that Mason Greenwood and goalkeeper David De Gea could be set for recalls to the starting xi after having missed the game against Brugge.

The absence of Martial will no doubt be a huge blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The forward has been in good form during recent weeks and needs just one more goal to equal his career best of 11 which was set during the 2015/16 season.

The game promises to be one which is entertaining. Both teams have revived in terms of their performances during recent weeks after having unpredictable results during the first half of the season.

United last faced off against Everton in the Premier League in December and the game ended 1-1 after Victor Lindelof scored an own goal and Greenwood equalised during the second half. 

If the Toffees manage to win at Goodison Park, it will be the first time in 13 months that they would have claimed back to back away victories in the Premier League.
