In the early game, Bournemouth are at home to Liverpool (k-o 1.30pm), then Everton take on Manchester United (k-o 4.00pm).

The Toffees have been solid under the stewardship of Ronald Koeman – bar the 5-0 calamity at the hands of Chelsea – and should be looking towards a European place.

Manchester United, however, appear little better than last season with tales of fractures and unhappiness spilling out from their camp…

Can they rally today?
