Home   /   Match Preview- Everton vs Manchester United- EFL Cup Quarter Final

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to Goodison Park with a place in the EFL Cup semi-final up for grabs in what it is the pick of the ties in the quarter finals.

United will be looking to book a place in their fourth semi-final in a year and go a step closer to the final of a competition they’ve won five times before.

Everton come into the game with three successive wins, their last being a 2-1 win against Arsenal. The Toffees will be looking to qualify for their first semi-final since 2016, where they were beaten 2-1 by a late Anthony Martial goal.

Two of the in-form sides in the league, both unbeaten in their last three games, could see up a cup classic in front of 2,000 fans at Goodison Park.

Team News

Scott McTominay made Premier League history in United’s 6-2 win against Leeds, scoring a brace in the opening three minutes. The Scot limped off late on and is a doubt. Luke Shaw is also a doubt after being replaced by Alex Telles.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s hat-trick in the last round of the cup takes him up to 10 EFL Cup goals since the start of the 2017-2018 season, the top scorer in that time. Carlo Ancelotti may opt to rest his main man but the lure of first Everton silverware in 25 years may see the Englishman start.

Everton are without Lucas Digne, Allan, Fabian Delph and Jean-Phillipe Gbamin, whilst Andre Gomes is a doubt, James Rodriguez could return after missing the Arsenal game.
