Despite contrasting starts to this season, Mourinho and Old Trafford appear to bring out the best in Koeman which is why the blue half of Merseyside may well be travelling back along the East Lancs Road on Sunday evening with a smile on their face. Kick-off is scheduled for Sunday at 4 PM BST. They haven't won the in the league since the opening day, and with four points, they find themselves in the 16 spot. "They are ready - this is also our way of thinking".

"He'll get a great reception from the United fans because he was such a great player for United in such a successful era as well".

Another forward facing his old club is Romelu Lukaku.

Everton arrive on a five-game winless run and having suffered a 3-0 thrashing at Atalanta in the Europa League on Thursday, but Mourinho remains wary of the quality in Ronald Koeman's squad.

Long-term issues plague Yannick Bolasie, Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman.

James McCarthy is a doubt due to a knee injury.

He'll want to score a goal and put on a performance and he'll want Everton to play well.

Could Rooney become the first player to score at Old Trafford for an opposing team in 2017/18?

Paul Pogba's absence for a "few matches" will be keenly felt by Manchester United but manager Jose Mourinho is hoping other players will step up to replace the France global. The all-time record is a mixed bag of results, but United have a slight edge thanks to 85 wins, 44 draws and 66 defeats in 195 meetings across all competitions stretching back to 1892.

The Lagny-sur-Marne-born star was handed the captaincy on Tuesday for the Champions League clash against Basel but he only lasted 19 minutes of the 3-0 victory after pulling up injured when challenging for the ball. The France worldwide could be out until late October, according to recent reports. Luke Shaw, on the other hand, recovered from his injury and will be available for selection.

Mourinho rotated the side slightly during the game against FC Basel.

Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba has been nothing but impressive so far this season, the 24-year-old has been brilliant in the middle of the park alongside former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic.

He was replaced by Marouane Fellaini and he opened the scoring and the Belgian could be in line for a start against Everton this weekend.
