Match Pack: Everton

United can go five points clear of Liverpool and Chelsea - who meet on Sunday - by beating Everton at Old Trafford…

Form Guide:

Sixth in the table, Everton have drawn their last three matches - against Liverpool, in league and cup, and Arsenal. United have won six league games in a row and have played eleven since last conceding a league goal on 8 November.

Ins and outs: Everton will be without Yakubu, James Vaughan and ex-Reds striker Louis Saha through injury. Nuno Valente is considered a doubt for the game. United could welcome back Patrice Evra but the injury list is still lengthy with Anderson, Rafael, Jonny Evans, Wayne Rooney, Fabio, Danny Welbeck and Nani among those who could miss out. Look out for updates following Sir Alex's press conference on Friday afternoon.

Star man: Tim Cahill. The dynamic midfielder is in-form, having scored against Liverpool and Arsenal. He also netted at OT last season before Ronaldo's late pen won it for United.
