Everton Vs Manchester United

Posted ImagePosted Image

Barclays Premier League

20th August 2012


Goodison Park


KO - 20:00 BST




Man Utd Preview:
Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney up front makes for a mouth watering partnership, they netted 57 league goals between them last season, if they hit somewhere near their individual targets from last term, United are going to be a formidable force.

Fergie has a lot to think about with regards to injuries, particularly at the back. Nemanja Vidic managed a number of appearances during pre-season and should feature but Rio Ferdinand could miss out due to injury along with Chris Smalling (groin), Jonny Evans (ankle) and Phil Jones (back), so Michael Carrick may be forced to play centre-back.

United will still be strong, they were fantastic on the road last season, picking up thirteen wins, which help them amass the highest points tally by a side in season who failed to win the league. They played better last season than they had in the previous one and we should see a progression forward this time again. They will know the challenge before them in Manchester City and they won

I hope Evans is fit enough to play , he has been training but we don't know if he is back to game level .

If Carrick plays at the back we will see Scholes with Cleverley or Anderson . Nani and Valencia wide with Rooney partnered by either Kagawa or Welbeck or RVP if Fergie throws in a surprise .

Scholes and cleverley would scare me against evertons midfield, especially with fellaini in that more advanced role.

Everton never start the season well though so this could be a good chance to beat them in a fixture that's normally dodgy for us.

Word seems to be that RVP will start, this will be the first United league game i watch in years if this is the case. Merely out of intrigue.

Wow... you must be a real PL connaisseur if youve watched that many Utd league games over the years. :P

Read somewhere that Fellaini was due to miss this game.

Everton XI

-----------------Howard--------------
Hibbert--Jagielka--Distin--Baines
------------Neville--Gibson---------
Osman-------Fellaini-------Pienaar
----------------Jelavic------------------

The exact team that we finished last season so strongly with. Be good to see a bit of solidarity at the club and try and continue the good form from last season.
Saw the united lineup but I'll leave it to you guys to decide exactly how they'll lineup, but to my untrained eye it looks like you have Carrick at Cb and Valencia at Rb.

When the commentators claim Kagawa would have never experienced an atmosphere like this one you know the Premier League and their ever so biased commentary has returned.

Will be an interesting game this one. Tipping United to win 1-2.

Bit of a soft yellow card there no? . Or is that sort of thing given in the EPL?

Harsh yellow.

Robin van Bench


He can sit on the bench for almost every game as long as he scores the winner against you Gunners!
