How to watch and follow United v Everton

Friday 07 April 2023 07:00

Manchester United are back in action on Saturday, as we welcome Everton to Old Trafford for a 12:30 BST kick-off.

Erik ten Hag's men come into the fixture having gathered momentum from a professional win over Brentford during the week, with Marcus Rashford scoring the sole goal of the game.

This weekend marks the third time we've gone head-to-head with the Merseysiders this season. In October, we beat Everton 2-1 at Goodison Park, before prevailing 3-1 in January's home Emirates FA Cup third-round tie. Frank Lampard was in charge of the Toffees for both of those fixtures.

Ahead of yet another important league encounter in the race for the top four, here are the key details as Sean Dyche takes charge of the Blues in Manchester for the first time...

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 12:30 BST and, unlike Wednesday’s clash with Brentford, it will be shown live in the UK. BT Sport is the selected broadcaster for this game.

Our Match Day Live show will commence at 11:25 BST and will include exclusive build-up and post-match reaction. We’ll also be providing unmissable content on and in the United App, with radio commentary available throughout the 90 minutes.


Two-minute highlights of the game will be available from 17:15 BST, with 90 in 20 and Full 90 versions being published after midnight.


Casemiro will sit out the final part of his four-game suspension: he is eligible to return at Nottingham Forest next Sunday. Christian Eriksen is coming closer to a return and Erik ten Hag has refused to rule him out of this weekend’s contest, but Alejandro Garnacho, Tom Heaton (both ankle), and Donny van de Beek (knee) remain sidelined. 

Luke Shaw was substituted in the first half of Wednesday’s win at home to Brentford and could therefore be a doubt heading into the Everton game.

The visitors will be missing Abdoulaye Doucoure, who is suspended after being sent off during Monday's 1-1 home draw with Tottenham. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Andros Townsend are injured.

When could Eriksen return?


The manager has not ruled Christian out of his plans for Saturday's contest with Everton.


For United and Everton, it has been very much a tale of two seasons. While United are in the running for a place in the top four, the Toffees have been pulled into a relegation fight at the bottom of the table with things increasingly tense as we approach the final running of the campaign. 

United got back to winning ways against Brentford during the week after a tough run of games that saw us lose at Liverpool and Newcastle, as well as drawing at home to Southampton. We are unbeaten at Old Trafford in the league since the opening-day defeat to Brighton.

Everton, with Dyche now at the helm, have just one win in their last six – a narrow 1-0 victory over Brentford – although they haven't lost since the start of March. The Toffees' home form has been keeping them in the battle against the drop - they've taken three points on the road just once in 2022/23, when beating Southampton at the beginning of October.

Short match highlights | See the main events from Friday night's FA Cup third-round tie at Old Trafford...


Saturday is our 209th meeting across all competitions with the Toffees, with the Reds coming out on top with 92 wins. We've lost to Everton 68 times and drawn on 48 occasions.. 

We’ve played them twice this season, coming away winners on both occasions. Our first encounter saw us travel to Merseyside in the Premier League, as goals from Antony and the now-departed Cristiano Ronaldo were enough to seal all three points. United faced Everton again early in the new year – this time in the FA Cup third round – with Antony on the scoresheet again, prior to Conor Coady’s own-goal and Marcus Rashford's penalty.


Michael Oliver will be in charge of proceedings at Old Trafford, with Stuart Burt and Simon Bennett manning the sidelines. Graham Scott is the fourth official, while Paul Tierney heads VAR, assisted by Steven Meredith.
