  • Manchester United has not lost to Everton in the last 17 Premier League meetings between the two sides at Old Trafford.
  • The Reds Devils have been strong at home all season, and have won their last 12 league games in their backyard. They also remain the only team in the top-flight not to have been beaten at home.
  • The last three matches between these two sides resulted in a total of 13 goals being scored. That is an average of 4.25 goals-per-game.
  • United has also scored more goals than any other team in the top-flight, having hit the net 70 times in the league this season.
  • Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are still on course to equal the home record that Chelsea set in 2005-06 under Jose Mourinho, when it won 18, drew one and lost none at Stamford Bridge. But to level that record, the Red Devils have to win their remaining three matches at Old Trafford.
  • Everton has won its last two games on the road. But prior to this, it had registered only one victory in 10 matches away from Goodison Park.
  • The Toffees are currently on a seven-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, but all seven matches have been against teams that are currently below them in the standings.
  • David Moyes’ men have conceded more goals (42) than every side above them. But the glass is half full when it is noted that they have shipped in fewer goals than every team below them.
  • The Blues have met United 37 times since the inception of the Premier League, and have managed to register only four victories against the league leaders. One of those came in the form of a 3-1 victory last season at Goodison Park.
  • Tim Cahill is Everton’s top scorer with nine goals in the league. But he will not make the short trip to Manchester, as he is sidelined with a foot injury.


September 11, 2010: Everton 3-3 Manchester United

Manchester United were cruising with a two-goal lead towards the end of the game, but Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta hit the back of the net in stoppage time to deny Sir Alex Ferguson a victory in his 700th game in Premier League management.
