Manchester United vs Everton 17/9/2017
It is a match full of instant reunions. Man Utd’s all-time leading top scorer Wayne Rooney makes an emotional return to Old Trafford, while Romelu Lukaku faces his former side Everton, a team which made him into a world superstar. The Belgian’s next goal will mark his 90th EPL strike. Should he score here, he will become only the fourth-youngest player (24 yrs, 127 days) to reach this landmark. That’s after Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Rooney. United simply love playing Everton. They have enjoyed 33 EPL wins against them, the second-highest total for one club beating another in the competition. But there won’t be a certain Paul Pogba around to police the midfield. The Frenchman suffered a hamstring injury in United’s 3-0 Champions League win against FC Basel in midweek. As for the battle in the dugout, Ronald Koeman has a proud record against Jose Mourinho. The Dutchman has not lost to the Portuguese in their past five managerial duels in this league.
