Confirmed: Everton v Man Utd lineups

Everton Goodison 2

Here is how Everton and Manchester United will line up for today's Premier League game at Goodison Park.

Everton will be looking to keep up their fine recent form this afternoon as they host Manchester United at Goodison Park.

The Toffees may have endured a difficult season under Roberto Martinez, but have now gone four games unbeaten, winning four of those games as they finally show signs of their quality.

Today, they will be looking to spring a surprise on Louis van Gaal's United side, with Romelu Lukaku restored to the starting line up in favour of Arouna Kone.

Kevin Mirallas scored the winning goal against Burnley last week, but is only on the bench today as Leon Osman takes his place in the Everton midfield.

United are in great form themselves, having won seven of their last nine games - but last week's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea was a blow for van Gaal.

It's a fairly familiar look to the United side today, with Marouane Fellaini supporting Wayne Rooney in attack - with both making returns to face former club Everton- whilst Ander Herrera partners Daley Blind in midfield.

Falcao, Robin van Persie and Angel Di Maria are all available from the bench in a strong bench for van Gaal, and having beaten Everton 2-1 at Old Trafford earlier this season, they'll be looking to repeat the trick today.
