Manchester United will host Everton in the Premier League on Saturday night, looking to build on the momentum from their record-breaking midweek victory.
The Red Devils beat Southampton 9-0 on Tuesday night, tying the record for the biggest win in Premier League history. It was a first win in three league games after a loss to Sheffield United and a draw against Arsenal, and it greatly boosted the morale of a team that was starting to struggle.
Everton also claimed a first victory in three league games in the middle of the week with a 2-1 win at Elland Road over Leeds, as Dominic Calvert-Lewin returned to the scoresheet. A home loss to Newcastle and a draw against Leicester before that means the Blues are currently in seventh place, two points off the top four but with two games going on some of the teams above them.

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed his side are almost at their peak for the clash in his pre-match press conference, with Eric Bailly the only player ruled out due to injury. Edinson Cavani was substituted at half-time against Southampton with an ankle problem, but he is expected to be in good shape.
Everton will be without Jordan Pickford for the game thanks to an abdominal injury, while midfielder Allan is back in training after a hamstring injury, but this game will come too soon for him.
Carlo Ancelotti has revealed he has rested James Rodriguez against Leeds to have him fresh for this game.
Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
Everton: Olsen; Coleman, Mina, Godfrey, Digne; Doucoure, Gomes, Sigurdsson; Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison

A win for United would see them level up in points, City having played one more game, and put them under pressure ahead of their match with Liverpool 24 hours later.
Everton know that a win could potentially put them in the top four, but they’ll have to do their best to get something from this Manchester United side.
Solskjaer made sure his team defended well as a unit and attacked well with pace and clinical advantage. With Everton’s form blowing hot and cold, they have struggled against the best teams so far this season and have already been beaten twice by United.
With Rashford, Fernandes, Pogba and Martial all found form in recent weeks, they should have too much for the visitors and be able to take all three points.
Prediction: Manchester United 2-0 Everton
