Manchester United need a big performance against Everton this weekend.
The last time Ole Gunnar Solskjaer showed a more or less strong performance over 90 minutes was Cristiano Ronaldo’s second debut against Newcastle.
Wednesday’s late, late win against Villarreal put some pressure on Solskjaer, but the performance raised some questions.
Solskjaer left with a 4-3-3 for that game, and in our predicted 11 we said he would stick with that system against a side from Everton that Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison lack.

David de Gea is an eye-catcher after another sensational performance on Wednesday.
Before him, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was suspended mid-week, but was supposed to return here in place of Diogo Dalot, who fought against Arnaut Danjuma.
Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof will continue to play in central defense, but will Luke Shaw be ready to play as left-back?
Solskjaer said Shaw is feeling better after his illness but Telles was so good on Wednesday that he deserves to start here again.

Donny van de Beek looked visibly frustrated not getting any further against Villarreal and we traded him down as his chance here.
In a 4-3-3 with Scott McTominay behind him and Bruno Fernandes just ahead, the Dutchman would have a stepping stone to show what he can do.
That would mean Paul Pogba returns to the left side of the top three while Jadon Sancho falls on the bench.
Jesse Lingard may have had a hard time not getting started, but he’s made a great impact lately and could be put back in that role here.
Mason Greenwood and Cristiano Ronaldo round out the squad despite Edinson Cavani pushing for a start after his weekday cameo made Old Trafford so audible.
