The Red Devils travel to Merseyside this Sunday looking to secure more points and bolster their claims to a Champions League spot for next season. Everton on the other hand will take to the pitch hoping to continue their recent form after going 4-1-0 in their previous five league matches. The last time the two sides faced each other was October 5th with United take a 2-1 victory at home.

Striker Romelu Lukaku could start this match after coming in as a substitute against Burnley last week. The Belgian international would be a welcome sight as he is the Toffee's primarily goal threat. Also making his return to Goodison Park will be Lukaku's fellow countryman, Marouane Fellaini. Fellaini linked up with David Moyes at United on the last day of the 2013 summer transfer window. After having a difficult first campaign up north, he seems to have found his place in the squad under Louis van Gaal.

Not to be missed, former Blue Wayne Rooney also returns to face his boyhood club. There were some interesting quotes this week from Everton's captain about United captain and his continued affinity for his old club:

"I speak to him all the time and he's always keen to know how we have got on - he's still a big Evertonian. Obviously he has an affiliation with Manchester United, he has been there a long time, he's the captain now, so you understand that - but he still loves the club."

The media also grabbed this quote to somehow got the impression that Jags won't rule out a Rooney return in the future:

"He would come back but he wouldn't want to come back at the end when he wasn't the player he was. He wouldn't want to come back for the sake of it. He would want to come back and make a difference.

He wouldn't just come back just for the sake of running around and doing nothing. Wayne has high standards. He would want to come back to break records, score the most goals for Everton - that's the type of person he is.

But he's got a big future, especially doing so well for Manchester United at the moment, and I can't see them letting him go anytime soon."
