  • Everton FC v Hajduk Split- UEFA Europa League Qualifying Play Offs Round First Leg

A 4-5-1 would be a far better option for Everton in this game as they can match the number of United players centrally, as well as have extra cover out wide.

The Toffees will have their work cut out, though, as Jose Mourinho's men have won 18 of the last 24 clashes between the two sides and are 10/31 (1.32) favourites on SportPesa to continue their fine start to the campaign.

Rooney claimed five Premier League titles and each of the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup once in a 13-year stint at United and Mourinho, who described the 31-year-old as a "real legend", expects him to receive a warm welcome from the home crowd.

Asked whether his own job might be under pressure, Koeman said he knew modern-day soccer was "all about winning and results".

United will be without Paul Pogba against Everton after the France worldwide suffered a hamstring injury during the Champions League win over Basel on Tuesday.

Philippe Coutinho Recovered From Back Injury, Returns to LFC Training
Coutinho came off the bench to play the last 15 minutes of his national team's draw with Colombia . Now is the time for him to show the team is ready to face everything'.

"We have other players with doubts".

"After this press conference I will have a meeting with most of the players and the key players".

This came down to preparation, according to the Atalanta manager, who said: "There was a lot of expectation on us, and we showed we could play with everyone".

Everton spent around £133 million in the offseason transfer market, with a large chunk of that amount coming from the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United. Honestly we miss Pogba and we need him but we have good players.

"I think he will get the welcome he deserves", he told reporters. "As soon as we knew that Rom would be on his way - and Ross [Barkley] has also not figured this season, so we have lost a few goals - we had to spread goals around the team and it's all about everyone else now".

"Before the Spurs game [a 3-0 defeat at Goodison Park], you'd say it was an OK start, but the Spurs game was disappointing, the manner in which we lost". For some reason Koeman made a decision to play him out on the left against Spurs and he was pretty ineffective all game.

"I have the experience - we had a bad run last season, I had a bad run with Southampton, we came out of those", he stressed.

The home side dominated from the outset, taking the lead when Everton failed to deal with a corner, with the ball ricocheting off Phil Jagielka's hip and falling to Andrea Masiello to poke in. "We have players waiting for an opportunity", he said.

"I'm not going to analyse in that perspective", Mourinho said.
