#Man #Utd #Everton #Cup #channels #team #news #lineups #predictions Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Manchester United and Everton go head-to-head in a Premier League-only clash as the FA Cup third round gets underway, this being a clash between two sides of opposite form.
United have made really big strides on both sides of the World Cup break as Erik ten Hag’s vision comes into play, but Frank Lampard has seen his Toffees return to the last three of the this week on the back of a string of poor results dating back a few years Premier League have slipped months.
This is a replay of the famous 1995 final at the original Wembley, which Everton won, while those clubs also met in the semi-finals at the new Wembley in 2009 and 2016.
Their last meeting, a 2-1 win for United at Goodison Park in October, was decided by the 103rd and final Premier League goal of Cristiano Ronaldo’s career.

Current form (last five games)
Man Utd team news
Antony is back in training after missing out on the Premier League win against Bournemouth, but Donny van de Beek may be on the sidelines a long time after suffering a nasty injury in that game.
Anthony Martial is expected to be fit after overcoming a slight knock.
With Martin Dubravka no longer with the club after being recalled by Newcastle, David de Gea is expected to keep his usual spot in goal rather than be rotated.
Man Utd out 11 (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Martinez, Malacia; McTominay, Fred; Rashford, Fernandes, Garnacho; martial.
Everton team news
Injury will cost James Garner the chance to play against the club he spent 13 years at until the summer, with ex-United player Michael Keane and Nathan Patterson out for six weeks after suffering a knee ligament problem against Brighton’s Andros Townsenden.
Amadou Onana should be back after a one-game suspension. Yerry Mina should also be available again after recovering from illness, but Anthony Gordon is still questionable for the same reason and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is struggling with fatigue.
Lampard must decide whether to go all-in for the FA Cup to give himself a break from the Premier League or rotate his team to rest key starters for another relegation battle. The Toffees boss went with three central defenders against Manchester City and was able to do it again.
Everton out 11 (5-3-2): Pickford; Coleman, Coady, Tarkowski, Godfrey, Mykolenko; Onana, Gueye, Iwobi; Maupay, Gray.
Manchester United have enjoyed a string of convincing victories over Burnley, Nottingham Forest, Wolves and Bournemouth since the end of the World Cup, doing what was always expected of them and comfortably beating smaller clubs without much trouble.
That’s only remarkable because not enough has happened in the decade since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. But things are changing under the last regime, with a more permanent feel.
Everton and Lampard, whose position looks increasingly precarious, meet at what may be the worst possible time. His team have won just one of their last 11 games in all competitions – a run that includes October’s defeat by United in the league.
The hope for Everton is that after frustrating Manchester City in the Premier League since Christmas they can do so again here. However, if they are eliminated they will have the advantage of being able to focus solely on salvaging their Premier League status until May.
Prediction: Manchester United 2-0 Everton
