Jose Mourinho not expecting goals record for Romelu Lukaku

Michael Keane, Wayne Rooney and Morgan Schneiderlin have previously wore United's red shirt before arriving to Goodison Park this year.

Conceding six goals in the last two games, Everton will be taking on an in-form Manchester United side who have conceded just twice this season and have netted twelve goals in their opening four league games.

We all know José Mourinho's tendencies of getting ultra-defensive when the big games approach, and at this early stage of the season, the Portuguese tactician has not yet had the urgent need for this tactical switch. At least new signing Gylfi Sigurdsson might be able to land a glove on United - Opta tell us the playmaker's been involved in six goals in his last six games against the Red Devils. I hope that we know how we have to defend against him.

Ander Herrera is an excellent top-flight centre midfielder and should be preferred over the other options by Jose Mourinho after picking up the Manchester United player of the season accolade last season. In the box he's really unsafe, he's fast, he's strong.

"We have had games where we've played well and a few games where it hasn't gone so well".

It is worth noting that several Everton players have featured for United in the past.

Koeman has rightly said that it is not the right time for shedding frustration, because they can hardly do anything before the next transfer window kicks in.

"Yes, it's different in possession now for us if you have a target man up front".

Everton are coming off three straight losses across all competitions, and have not scored a single goal during that streak. Yes, he has pace but he's not physically the strongest. But it's too easy to talk about the striker.

Mourinho was in full praise about Rooney ahead of his first return to Old Trafford since his summer move to Everton, but was also adamant he did not want the game to be dominated by talk of his return.

Nevertheless, the Toffees boss has been impressed with the side Jose Mourinho has built for this season and he is expecting a much tougher test this time around.

Mourinho went on to declare he was happy with the squad he has assembled at United and he believes the relationship between the club's supporters and their team has changed for the better.

When a team is competing in as many tournaments as United are, quality and depth are two essential matters.
