Pienaar wary of OT fortress

Steven Pienaar says the thought of going to Old Trafford on Saturday is a daunting task for the Toffees.

United have taken 28 points from a possible 30 in ten games on home soil this season. "Nobody goes to Old Trafford and says that they fancy their chances," he tells Saturday's matchday programme.

But Everton do have reason to be cautiously optimistic at least; they boast one of the Premier League's best away records. This term they've taken a point more than United on their travels - from one game fewer, too - while only Chelsea, Liverpool and Aston Villa have picked up more points away from home.

"United are top because they're in great form," added Pienaar. "But we've been on a good run ourselves and our away form is particularly strong. We'll go to Old Trafford full of confidence and we'll give everything to try and win the game."
