Manchester United will travel to Goodison Park on Sunday to take on Everton in a premier League tie. After qualifying for the EFL Cup in the midweek, Jose Mourinho’s Red Army will look to build on that momentum. United have not been winning matches in the Premier League and that is a concern for Mourinho.

 

However, Mourinho can actually make it a successful Sunday for the Red Devils if he chooses the correct playing XI. A number of players will be missing from the squad because of suspension and injury concerns. Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Wayne Rooney will not be available for the night.

 

In the mean time Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini will return from their one-match suspensions. But two players who Mourinho should start in this clash against The Toffees are Bastian Schweinsteiger and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

 

Ever since he has made his comeback in the playing XI, Mkhitaryan has been superb on the ball. He has already won two ‘Player-of- the matches’ in the last three games he featured in.

 

Schweinsteiger marked his return to the Old Trafford pitch after a long time and he received a warm welcome from the crowd. However, he was only at the pitch for a very short period against West Ham United in the quarter final fixture on Thursday. But he did create a chance along with Ander Herrera that led to a goal, which was scored Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Someone as experienced as him always helps the team. 

 

It will be interesting to see how Mourinho chooses Manchester United’s playing XI against Everton at the Goodison Park.
