Just a matter of what seems like hours since Manchester United played out a dour 0-0 draw with Bournemouth, Manchester United are back in action this afternoon.

In the late afternoon kick-off, Manchester United will be at Goodison Park going head-to-head with Everton.

Ahead of the fixture we`ve cobbled together some early team-news.

Starting with our hosts Everton:

Now under the managerial guidance of the experienced Sam Allardyce, Everton need to make a decision regarding the fitness of both James McCarthy and Yannick Bolasie. Both have recently returned to first-team action after injury and there are doubts as to whether they can play two games in quick succession.

Continuing with Manchester United:

Jose Mourinho`s team selection continues to be troubled by injuries.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Eric Bailly all side-lined, they`ve been joined by Romelu Lukaku who must sit out the next two games after suffering a concussive injury in the game against AFC Bournemouth.
