Confirmed Man Utd XI to face Everton: Victor Lindelof and Juan Mata start

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his Manchester United starting XI for Saturday lunchtime’s crucial fixture against Everton at Goodison Park. 

United could slip as low as 17th in the Premier League table with defeat and must secure victory to lift some of the mounting pressure on Solskjaer heading into the latest international break.

David De Gea returns in goal after Dean Henderson made his Champions League debut in the midweek defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir.

Victor Lindelof replaces Axel Tuanzebe and will partner captain Harry Maguire in central defence after missing Wednesday’s game due to injury.

There is no room for Alex Telles in the matchday squad despite recovering from coronavirus, as Luke Shaw retains his place.

Scott McTominay is partnered by Fred in a midfield pivot, with Bruno Fernandes operating in an advanced role behind the forwards.

Fernandes will support a front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata.

Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek and Daniel James offer United’s attacking threats from the bench.
