Confirmed Manchester United XI vs Everton – Ten Hag picks strong line-up for FA Cup tie

Erik ten Hag has named a strong Manchester United starting eleven to face Everton in the third round of the FA Cup.

David de Gea keeps his place between the posts, while Diogo Dalot and Tyrell Malacia operate at full-back. Raphael Varane will be joined by Luke Shaw at centre-back.

In midfield, Casemiro will act an the anchor behind Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes.

Antony and Marcus Rashford will attack from either flank, with Anthony Martial holding a more central position.

Manchester United go into the game after winning nine of their last 10 matches in all competitions, knowing a win would take them into the fourth round of the FA Cup — only to further enhance our chances of winning some silverware this season.

But first we need to beat Everton tonight.

Ten Hag was tasked with a major rebuilding job and to restore former glories. The Dutchman will move one step closer to doing the latter if United progress in the FA Cup tonight.

It bodes well for us that Everton have won just one of their last 29 away games against United in all competitions. On top of that, they’ve shown relegation-threatening form in the Premier League this season.
