Both Everton and Man Utd desperately need three points from this fixture, with Ralf Rangnick’s side still chasing a top four finish and Frank Lampard’s Toffees sitting just one point above the relegation zone
Manchester United travel to Everton on Saturday for the Premier League’s early kick-off and will be hoping to take advantage of the hosts’ lowly position in order to make a quick return to winning ways, following last weekend’s 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City.
And if the Red Devils wanted to play anyone right now, it would be the Toffees, who’s problems worsened in midweek with a 3-2 defeat to Burnley which left them sitting just one point above the relegation zone after one win in their last seven matches.
When is Everton vs Man Utd?
Everton vs Man Utd will kick-off at 12:30pm on Saturday, April 9 at Goodison Park.
The last meeting between these two sides came in the reverse fixture back in October, when Everton held their hosts to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford to remain unbeaten in three successive league visits to the Red Devils.
Anthony Martial had given Man Utd a first half lead just before half time with a 43rd minute strike, but Andros Townsend equalised after the break in the 65th minute to secure a point for the Toffees, who also had an 86th minute winner disallowed by VAR for offside.

Despite recently struggling with a small thigh injury, Donny van de Beek is unable to feature against his parent club on Saturday anyway, while Andre Gomes is struggling with a knock and Yerry Mina (thigh) won’t return until the end of the month.
