Everton at Manchester United: Live Gamethread

Everton travel to Old Trafford for their first fixture against Manchester United this season. The Toffees won both fixtures against the Red Devils last year, including their first win at Old Trafford in 21 years.

Despite spending nearly £170 million on players during the transfer window, Louis Van Gaal and Manchester United have struggled to regain their dominant ways and currently sit 10th in the table. Even with high profile signings such as Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao, United have not fared much better than they did under David Moyes.

Everton are coming off a disappointing draw at Krasnodar in the Europa League. The Toffees could no doubt use a win against a struggling club like United if they wish to get their season back on track.

Seamus Coleman, Sylvain Distin and James McCarthy will miss today's match, but Steven Pienaar has been cleared to play and will be in the starting line-up.

Everton Starting XI: Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Stones, Baines, Barry, Besic, Pienaar, McGeady, Naismith, Lukaku

Everton Subs: Joel, Gibson, Eto'o, Oviedo, Osman, Browning, Alcaraz

Manchester United Starting XI: De Gea, Rafael, Shaw, Rojo, Blind, McNair, Mata, Valencia, Falcao, van Persie, di Maria

Manchester United Subs: Lindegaard, Thorpe, Blackett, Fletcher, Fellaini, Januzaj, Wilson
