EPL Matchday 5 Preview: Manchester United vs Everton

Paul Ince is backing Manchester United to beat Everton in what the retired midfielder considers to be "the game of the week".

Mourinho said: "I think Wayne spent probably 10 years of his career in a different Premier League than you have now".

The United manager is insistent that his team's success or failure will not depend exclusively on the form of their main striker, pointing out that they only finished sixth in the Premier League last season despite the contribution of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored 28 goals in all competitions.

Everton have been a bit inconsistent this season, as they have mixed some impressive displays with some really poor ones.

The Everton star's off-field problems have been well-documented in recent weeks, and it's fair to say he's only at Goodison Park at all because he had gradually fallen out of Jose Mourinho's plans.

Manchester United will be looking to maintain their position at the top of the table when they take on Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. But it's too easy to mention the strikers.




There is no real discernible correspondence between Rooney's goal return and the number of goals scored in a season. Three wins and a draw in four games means that the Red Devils are leading the English Premier League on goal difference. Many people (including me, I must admit) thought there'd be a reaction at Atalanta in the Europa League.

"So it's not just the striker".

"I think that Romelu has a better team than Zlatan had". "The way the team plays, they have to (score more goals)".

Mourinho was also on hand to spout platitudes aplenty, making the frankly audacious claim that "Everton have lots of good players, they're a good team and it will be a very hard match for us". "We couldn't be happier (with him)".

Mourinho believes Ibrahimovic will offer strong competition to Romelu Lukaku - the Swede could be back in action as early as November - for the striking role, even though the Belgian has begun impressively since his £75 million ($97.6 million, 82.5 million euros) move from Everton.

"I'm just waiting for the moment to get back to the team and to play with them and enjoy the moments". Everton have gone into a tailspin, and although Koeman remains confident the decline won't last, I'd be very surprised if Old Trafford provides the light at the end of the tunnel. When players are so different, there is no point in comparing.
