Head 2 Head:

United enter this contest with extreme confidence. Winning 9-0 against Southampton, a team they haven't done the double over since they last won the title in 2013. The goal-fest came at the expense of two Saints red-cards, allowing rampant United to push aside Southampton's injury strucken team.

United won the first fixture in November 2020 at Goodison Park, comfortably putting 3 goals past the Toffees conceding only once. A first goal for Edinson Cavani and the first win of a 13 game unbeaten run in the league. United faced up the Toffees in the League Cup on the 23rd December, goals from Cavani and Martial progressed them to the Semi-Finals in a 2-0 win.

This fixture has been fought out on 215 occasions, United have won 90 games, drawn 45 and lost 70. United haven't lost to Everton at home since their last title-winning campaign in 2013.
