Trip to Old Trafford in search of three points

Everton make the short journey to Manchester United on Sunday looking for their first win at Old Trafford for 21 years.


After the disappointment of failing to beat Aston Villa last weekend, Everton are in need of three points on their travels. Evertonians will travel with some hope, albeit it limited due to the clubs poor away record against the 19 times Champions of England. Despite this, recent displays against United have been good, with a 1-0 win earlier in the season and the unforgettable 4-4 draw from last season.

Moyes is expected to make at least one change, with Phil Neville returning to the team at right back at the expense of Johnny Heitinga. Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jagielka are expected to shake off the knocks which meant they missed out for Belgium and England respectively in midweek. The big decision for Moyes remains up front, and whether to recall Jelavic in place of the inform Victor Anichebe.

Our featured game on our YouTube channel this week comes from the 1996-97 season and an inform Duncan Ferguson scoring twice for Everton, only for the Blues to be pegged back. Everton had two fantastic chances to win the game in the dying minutes, but were denied by a good save from Schmeichel and a terrible miss from Speed.
