    Hello nice preview as always, must win imo to heap the pressure on the other two. Glad this is at Old Trafford as Everton have been and are playing well of late. Not going to be a stroll in the park i fully expect a hard fought game with united edging it 2-0. Really nervous going into this but am fully confident that the lads will pull out a victory and they had better as i have to get up at 7.30am for the game lol.
