Confirmed Everton v Man Utd lineups: Jagielka passed fit, Fosu-Mensah returns

Here is how Everton and Manchester United will line up this evening...

Everton and Manchester United meet in the FA Cup semi-finals this evening, with both managers fighting for their jobs.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has come under huge pressure recently after a run of seven Premier League games without a win, and FA Cup success may not even be enough to save him this summer.

The Toffees boss has problems in defence with Seamus Coleman and Ramiro Funes Mori out, meaning Phil Jagielka starts having been passed fit.

John Stones may shift to right back with Muhamed Besic dropping into centre back alongside Jagielka.

Former Manchester United midfielders Tom Cleverley and Darron Gibson both start, whilst star names like Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku are of course in the side.

Meanwhile, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has underwhelmed this season, and desperately needs a result today.

Van Gaal has handed a recall to teenage defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah after he missed the last two games, and he will play at right back this evening.

With a place in the final up for grabs, it's no surprise that Van Gaal has called upon plenty of attacking talent, with Jesse Lingard, Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford all starting.

The likes of Matteo Darmian, Memphis Depay, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Morgan Schneiderlin are all on the bench in a strong United squad.
