Manchester United vs Everton: Jose Mourinho’s most attacking line-up

by Leo Nieboer

A lot has changed at Manchester United since last season, and the most significant aspect can be summed up in one word: goals.

Jose Mourinho’s men could never really shake their neurosis in front of goal last season, but the mood going forward this time around has radically transformed into a lethal frenzy.

They have claimed 15 goals in their last five matches – an average of three a game – and supporters will expect their side to come out with all guns blazing against an Everton side that have lost their last two games 0-3.

With that in mind, here is Mourinho’s most attacking line-up – minus the injured Paul Pogba – for the clash with Ronald Koeman’s men on Sunday afternoon.



This front six, along with full-backs Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia, have all demonstrated a capacity to inflict damage going forward to far this season.

Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku were both in lethal form against FC Basel on Tuesday night, claiming Man United’s first and second goals respectively, and giving them a chance to inflict further damage against their former employers feels like a no-brainer.

The 29-year-old has rapidly turned the the tide of opinion towards him in recent times with a series of boisterous midfield displays and Lukaku has actually outscored the entire Everton team in the Premier League over the first four games.
