Ahead of the match at Old Trafford, we take a look at how the sides' forwards Angel Di Maria and Steven Naismith compare.

Everton won both of last season’s clashes against a United side struggling under former manager David Moyes, and should thus have no fear visiting Old Trafford.

However, Roberto Martinez’s side, like their Merseyside rivals Liverpool, have started this season in stark contrast to last campaign, when they earned a Europa League spot with their fifth place finish. The Toffees currently lie in 15th place, with just one league victory to their name, and have conceded 14 goals in their six fixtures so far, including a 6-3 demolition at the hands of Chelsea.
