Manchester United will welcome fans and Everton to Old Trafford on Saturday for a pre-season friendly. The Toffees are under new management this Premier League season, with ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez in the hotseat. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s side have so far beaten Derby County, drew with Brentford and lost to Queens Park Rangers during their summer schedule.
On most occasions, when these two sides meet, the games are highly entertaining. Who could forget the 4-4 draw from two seasons ago at Old Trafford?. The fact that the Merseyside giants have only played twice this summer is far from ideal, but this weekend’s contest with Man United will prove to be an extremely valuable exercise for new head coach Rafael Benitez, who will lead his side into their league opener against Southampton on August 14.
Everton have made three new signings during this summer’s transfer window, bringing in Demarai Gray, Andros Townsend and Asmir Begovic, while Kean, Cenk Tosun and Jonjoe Kenny at back at Goodison Park following loan spells, and it will be interesting to see what happens with the trio in the coming weeks. Manchester United take on Everton at Old Trafford and the game marks manager David Moyes’ first against his former club. It has been a bumpy couple of months for Moyes in the Premier League with his current club currently in eighth place. For Everton, on the other hand,
life with a new manager is going reasonably well as they sit two points and three places above United in fifth. On most occasions, when these two sides meet, the games are highly entertaining. Who could forget the 4-4 draw from two seasons ago at Old Trafford? With Man Utd in desperate need of a win after drawing two in a row and Everton playing so well, we can expect another entertaining tie.
