Everton have made three changes against Manchester United from the team that were beaten 1-0 against Southampton.
Ronald Koeman has recalled Ramiro Funes Mori, Tom Cleverley and Kevin Mirallas to the starting XI, while Phil Jagielka, Ross Barkley and Kevin Mirallas drop out.
The Toffees manager has decided to leave out regular defender Jagielka and hand Funes Mori the chance to impress.
Ashley Williams keeps his place in the heart of the defence and will look to have a solid partnership alongside Funes Mori.

Jagielka has featured in every league games this season, but that record could come to an end against United.
The 34-year-old has come under criticism recently for his performances and several fans feel that he has gone past his peak.
Funes Mori will look to seize his place in the starting XI and is set to face a tough task marking United forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
