Manchester United 

Manchester United continued their impressive form on Tuesday as they beat Bournemouth 3-0 at home in the Premier League.

Goals from Casemiro, Luke Shaw, and the in-form Marcus Rashford gave Erik ten Hag’s side all three points in front of a jubilant Old Trafford crowd.

The win was their fourth in a row, and they recorded a fourth consecutive clean sheet. That is the most recent chapter of a stellar stretch that has seen them lose just one of their last 16 games (W13, D2). 

While the win over Bournemouth didn’t particularly please Ten Hag, who said his team didn’t ‘play smart and were lucky,’ the Dutchman must be pleased with how well his side is performing on home soil.

The Red Devils have won each of their last seven games at Old Trafford and have conceded in just one of those matches. Taking that form into the FA Cup could end a six-year trophy drought in a competition the Red Devils have won 12 times, a total bettered only by Arsenal.

Possible Manchester United starting line-up

David de Gea; Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Scott McTominay, Fred, Antony Elanga, Bruno Fernandes; Alejandro Garnacho, Marcus Rashford.

Injured: Jadon Sancho, Axel Tuanzebe

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None


Three days after producing a defensive masterclass when they held Manchester City to a 1-1 draw, Everton’s defensive woes resurfaced as they were utterly torn apart by Brighton.

The Toffees’ poor season form hit a new height on Tuesday as they are beaten 4-1 by Brighton, leaving them sitting just one point above the relegation zone, having played a game more.

Their league form and position has left manager Frank Lampard fearing for his job, with fans turning on him and his players after that shambolic display against Brighton at home.

Dejected manager Frank Lampard admitted after the game that he can’t ‘control decisions’ surrounding his future, and this is likely to be his last game unless he can work a miracle here.

Although his side have plenty of pedigree in this competition, courtesy of five title wins to their name, the chances of a sixth crown look incredibly bleak given their torrid run of recent form. The visitors have won just one of their last 11 games (D2, L8), a sequence that notably began with a 2-1 defeat to Man Utd.

Any chance of getting a good result here will be hinged on improving their defence and attack, which has enjoyed just two multiple-goal hauls all season.

Possible Everton starting line-up

Jordan Pickford; Ben Godfrey, Conor Coady, James Tarkowski; Vitali Mykolenko, Amadou Onana, Idrissa Gueye, Anthony Gordon, Alex Iwobi, Demarai Gray; Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Injured: Michael Keane, James Garner, Andros Townsend 

Doubtful: Yerry Mina

Suspended: None
