Manchester United v Everton: Toffees' nightmare run to continue

Keane will return to his old stomping ground this Sunday when Everton take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.

In last season's Champions League edition, the Frenchman averaged 2.9 successful tackles and 2.8 interceptions per game, guiding AS Monaco to the semi-finals of the competition, while being one of the main protagonists.

And he is proud that one of his successors Romelu Lukaku is filling his shooting boots.

The 24-year-old has settled in nicely at his new club, and has scored four goals so far in the Premier League.

The Red Devils will not have Paul Pogba, as the dynamic midfielder suffered a hamstring injury during the UCL match against FC Basel this past Tuesday.

It had all started so well.

It proved particularly costly in the Premier League as they stumbled home sixth having netted just 54 goals - a goal ratio of 1.42 that has improved to an average of three per game in the opening weeks of this season. And then the wheels didn't just come off, they disintegrated spectacularly.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has also spoke out about the return of Rooney.

"I think he'll put it to the back of his mind".

Other effects of the illness include fatigue along with sleep, memory and mood issues. I'm hospitalized, " she said. "You hold a special place in my heart I love you".

Saturday 7th February 2004, the last time Wayne Rooney played a competitive match for Everton, against Manchester United. Like Everton, Rooney started the season well with goals against Stoke and Manchester City, but his nocturnal activities and subsequent drink-driving charge have created an unnecessary and potentially harmful distraction. He also admitted that he isn't as big a United fan as he used to be growing up.

It says a lot that the Belgian has scored more goals this season for club and country than Everton have as an entire club.

"This is the game of the week", Ince told the Daily Express.

Romelu Lukaku continued his fine goal-scoring form with another strike in midweek so the Belgian global should once again lead the line up front. If they win by two goals or more, you win.

Another forward facing his old club is Romelu Lukaku.

"I think he comes [to United] in the right moment, [he is] a good age, a good number of years of experience in different clubs in the Premier League and clearly a player adapted to the Premier League with good friends already in this dressing room".

A "worried" Ronald Koeman will, meanwhile, hold a meeting with Everton's squad where he will urge experienced players such as Rooney to drag them out of their rut.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has vowed to return to the field as an improved player as he works his way back to Manchester United after knee surgery.
