David Moyes today returned to Goodison Park and decided to make another former Evertonian today's captain of Manchester United - Wayne Rooney.
Both the Manchester United manager and his star striker have few friends on Merseyside due to their exits from Everton and will likely face a fierce reception from the crowd.
Moyes, Everton manager for 11 years, made four changes, with Alex Buttner, Jonny Evans, Nani and Juan Mata coming into the starting line-up for today's Premier League game.
Marouane Fellaini, who Moyes snatches away from Goodison in a big money deal during the summer, was named on the United bench against his former employers.
Roberto Martinez, the man who succeeded Moyes and who has proved a superb replacement, recalled Steven Naismith and James McCarthy.
Everton: Howard, Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Lukaku, Barkley, Mirallas, Naismith. Subs: Robles, Hibbert, McGeady, Deulofeu, Osman, Garbutt, Alcaraz.
Man Utd: De Gea, Jones, Smalling, Evans, Buttner, Carrick, Fletcher, Nani, Mata, Kagawa, Rooney. Subs: Giggs, Lindegaard, Hernandez, Welbeck, Valencia, Fellaini, Januzaj.
