Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has once again left Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek out of his Manchester United XI for the crunch clash with Everton on talkSPORT.
The Red Devils travel to Goodison Park on the back of their worst Premier League start in seven years and their manager’s job is thought to be under genuine threat.
An abysmal 1-0 defeat to Arsenal last Sunday was followed by a shocking 2-1 loss to Champions League new boys Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday, which raised serious questions about Solskjaer’s future at Old Trafford.
Mauricio Pochettino’s shadow looms large over the Everton clash amid rumours United have already got in touch with the former Spurs boss – and another defeat could have serious consequences for Solskjaer.
In desperate search of a result, the Norwegian has refused to recall Pogba to the starting XI, or give Van de Beek his first Premier League start of the season.
Meanwhile, Everton are boosted by the return of James Rodriguez, who missed the recent defeat to Newcastle through injury, and there is a recall for under-fire goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
