Everton vs Man Utd predicted XIs: Team news as Alejandro Garnacho promoted to the first-team ahead of Toffees tie

Published: 10:35, 8 April 2022

Everton and Manchester United meet in an absolutely crucial Premier League match on Saturday that could determine the fates of both clubs come the end of the season (12.30pm kick-off, UK time).

It’s probably fair to say that Everton are teetering on the brink of relegation for the first time since 1951 following their latest setback against bottom-three rivals Burnley, whom they came unstuck against in midweek at Turf Moor. Given their exceptionally unfavourable run-in, Frank Lampard knows that now, results — even against the top sides — are simply non-negotiable. As for the Red Devils, they are pushing to catch Tottenham and move into the top four. Ralf Rangnick’s men are currently seventh, but only three points adrift of the Londoners.

Everton team news vs Man Utd: Ban boys back

  • Ins: Michael Keane, Allan
  • Outs: Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Tom Davies, Andros Townsend, Nathan Patterson, Donny van de Beek
  • Doubts: Seamus Coleman

Lampard will be boosted significantly by the returns of Michael Keane and Allan, both of whom faced varying degrees of suspension following red cards against West Ham and Newcastle respectively. Donny van de Beek, though is out of action as he’s ineligible to face his parent club, while Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Tom Davies, Andros Townsend and Nathan Patterson remain on the sidelines. Seamus Coleman could return here, but may not be risked from the off.

Man Utd team news vs Everton: Ronaldo returns

  • Ins: Cristiano Ronaldo, Jesse Lingard
  • Outs: Edinson Cavani
  • Doubts: Luke Shaw

Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to feature on Saturday, as confirmed by the club after he missed the weekend’s draw against Leicester due to illness. Jesse Lingard missed the match with a similar condition and he too looks set to return this weekend. Luke Shaw was substituted off against the Foxes with a leg injury in place of Alex Telles, so the latter is likely to start against Everton, while Edinson Cavani remains sidelined.

Rangnick also confirmed that Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay are both out of this contest during his pre-match press conference. “Raphael Varane is still injured, he will be missing for the game tomorrow and the same is true with Scott McTominay, I’m afraid,” Rangnick said. “He’s having problems with the sole of his foot. So those four players will be missing.”


In other news, Alejandro Garnacho has been captured training with the first team ahead of the visit to Goodison Park. The highly-regarded teenage sensation recently returned from international duty with the Argentina senior team, so he can now say he’s trained with both Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, a rare feat, particularly at such a tender age. The general impression at Old Trafford is that he is a future superstar.
