Everton closing in on their fourth successive home clean sheet here. Going out on a limb, United are not going to score if they are here until this time tomorrow...
Four minutes of added time here.
Game is petering out now, with United counting the seconds until the final whistle.
SAVE! Martial picks up the lay-off from Pogba, unleashes a powerful strike at goal, but Pickford is down to make the save. That was United's first shot on target in the match, in the 87th minute.
Phil Jagielka is the man to replace Digne, who has again been excellent today.
Digne is down and it looks like his afternoon is also over here.
SAVE! Sigurdsson cross is only cleared as far as Coleman, who volleys for goal, but it is a comfortable save for De Gea.
Change for United here with Rashford replaced by Andreas Pereira.
No exaggeration here...
Change for Everton as James McCarthy, who has had a wretched run with injuries, replaces Gueye for his first outing of the season.
Matic has the chance to pull once back from the edge of the box, but drags his effort wide.
Party time at Goodison, as the "ole's!" ring down from the Gwladys Street End.
CLOSE! As close as United have come, with Martial darting into the box, cutting inside before firing just wide on his right foot.
McTominay lets his frustrations get the better of his as he is cautioned for retaliation.
Martial is down in the box appealing for a penalty, but the referee is having none of it. Would have been very soft.
What on earth is going on here? Dalot misses his clearance, Everton break, Sigurdsson threads it through for Walcott, who slots home his fourth of the season.
GOOOOOAAALLLLL! Everton 4-0 Manchester United. My word, this gets worse for United, with Walcott making it four.
United so shorn of ideas. Dalot is having a nightmare out there. Might be worth withdrawing the youngster.
OFF THE LINE! Corner comes in from Sigurdsson, it beats the man at the near post, and De Gea is forced to hook the ball clear off his own line with his feet.
What a dreadful afternoon this is turning out to be for United. De Gea punches the corner clear, only as far as Digne, who fires through the crowd of players and into the bottom corner from 25 yards. Great strike.
GOOOOAAALLLLL!! Everton 3-0 Manchester United. Disaster for United as Digne slams home a brilliant strike to make it three.
Game is passing Martial by, again. Just 13 touches so far. Has been so poor recently, which is so frustrating given his talent.
Matic fires a pass into Lukaku, who cannot control and the attack disperses.
Theo Walcott is the man who replaces Richarlison, who limps off with a grimace.
Richarlison is down and it looks like his afternoon is over.
United with the possession early in the second half. Flat back four for them now, too.
Back under way here. Two changes for United with Ashley Young and Scott McTominay on for Fred and Jones.
One sided doesn't quite cover it...
HT: Everton 2-0 Manchester United. An awful 45 minutes from United with the hosts good value for their comfortable lead. United are staring down the barrel of a fifth away defeat in a row in all competitions for the first time since 1981. They have not got going here, at all, as their top four hopes hang by a thread.
Two minutes of added time at the end of the half here...
Fred lunges in on Richarlison and again escapes a caution. United need half time here to regroup.
So many errors as Dalot gives the ball away, Fred slips, Richarlison gets the shot away, but it is straight at De Gea.
Phil Jones is down receiving some treatment after a sliding challenge.
The United players certainly need some inspiration...
Martial tries to thread the ball through for Rashford, but Digne is there to make the interception.
Dlot tries to whip the cross in, but it is blocked. United still yet to really trouble Pickford.
Not you, again...
Dalot is forced into conceding a corner, with the defending once again leaving much to be desired.
It is not going well...
United are absolutely all over the place here. The crowd are really getting behind the hosts, who are firmly in control.
Corner for United, Everton clear, counter at pace, the ball falls for Sigurdsson, who is allowed far too much time to shoot for goal from fully 30 yards, with the fierce strike drilled into the bottom corner, beating De Gea who really should do better.
GOOOOOALLLLLL!!!! Everton 2-0 Manchester United. Gylfi Sigurdsson fires a thunderbolt into the net from distance to double the hosts' advantage.
Rashford lines a free-kick up front distance, but his powerful effort is always heading well over the top.
First booking of the afternoon is for Gueye for a lunge in on Fred.
United are finally starting to see some of the ball here. Lukaku, though, remains a bystander.
OVER! Lovely ball over the top from Pogba lands into the path of Rashford, who tries to hook the ball back where it came with his right foot, but cannot find the target.
What a finish!
United struggling to cope here as Everton win yet another corner.
Why are they not in red?
Lucas Digne launches a long throw into the middle, but United just deal with this time.
The warning signs were there for United, but they fail to clear a long throw, Calvert-Lewin flicks it on, and Richarlison is there to hook the ball into the net over his head. Awful start from United this.
GOOOOOAAALLLLLL!!!! Everton 1-0 Manchester United. Richarlison is not be denied this time as he acrobatically volleys the opener.
SAVE! David de Gea back to his best there, as he brilliantly denies Richarlison after Idrissa Gueye's cross had fallen for the Brazilian in the box. Richarlison got a second bite of the cherry but dragged his effort wide.
Everton still very much on top as Nemanja Matic makes a mess of trying to clear.
Long ball over the top looks for Anthony Martial, but Jordan Pickford races from his line to clear.
Rashford tries to break quickly but Dominic Calvert-Lewin does well to work back and make the tackle.
Everton the early pressure, winning a couple of corners. United pressed very deep into their half.
United look to be lining up with a back three here, with Rashford sort of a right wing-back. Interesting from Solskjaer...
We are up and running here...
So here we go! Just two wins in United's last seven since the Miracle of Paris has certainly cast doubt over the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but victory today against an improved Everton would certainly reinvigorate their top four push. Three wins in a row for Everton alleviated much of the pressure on manager Marco Silva's shoulders, before a limp display in defeat to Fulham last time out acted as a reality check for any Toffees getting carried away. Something has to give in the Goodison sunshine today! The teams are in their way!
A warning from the boss ahead of today's encounter...
Look at that pitch! Glorious!
Anthony Martial has scored in each of his last three Premier League games Everton - the last Man Utd player to score in four straight matches against a single opponent was Wayne Rooney vs Hull in November 2014.
United fans won't want to agree...
People forget just how young Lukaku is...
HOME COMFORTS: After a run of just one home win in eight Premier League games, Everton have won their last two at Goodison Park. Everton have won their last two home Premier League games against 'big six' sides, as many as they had in their previous 19 in the competition (W2 D7 L10). They last won three home league games in a row against such opponents in the competition in March 2012.
HEAD TO HEAD: Everton have lost more Premier League matches against Manchester United than any side has against another in the history of the competition (36). Following a run of three straight away defeats against Everton without scoring a single goal, United have won two of their last three top-flight games at Goodison Park (D1). In their meeting earlier this season, United scored their 100th Premier League goal against Everton in a 2-1 victory, making them just the second side to net 100+ goals against a single opponent in the competition (also Arsenal against Everton). Everton's only previous league win, and Man Utd's only previous league defeat on Easter Sunday came in this exact fixture in the 2013-14 campaign (Everton 2-0 Man Utd).
All is not well at Old Trafford...
LUKAKU RETURNS, KEANE STARTS: Solskjaer has gone for a very attack-minded side this afternoon, with a front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku. All in all there are three changes from the side beaten by Barcelona in midweek, with Ashley Young, Scott McTominay and Jesse Lingard, replaced by Diogo Dalot, Nemanja Matic and Lukaku. Everton make two changes to the side that lost 2-0 away to Fulham last time out. In come Michael Keane and Morgan Schneiderlin for Phil Jagielka and the suspended Andre Gomes.
TEAMS - EVERTON: Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Zouma, Digne; Gueye, Schneiderlin; Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Bernard; Calvert-Lewin... Subs: Stekelenburg, Jagielka, Walcott, Tosun, McCarthy, Davies, Lookman. /// MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea; Lindelof, Jones, Smalling, Dalot; Matic, Fred, Pogba; Rashford, Martial; Lukaku... Subs: Romero, Sanchez, Mata, Lingard, Pereira, Young, McTominay.
The teams are in...
Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Manchester United's crucial Premier League clash with Everton from Goodison Park. It appeared all was well once more at Old Trafford and an vitriolic Jose Mourinho era soon forgotten as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought the good times back to M16, but the wheel(s) well and truly has come off. United's top-four aspiration hang by a thread, with Everton, who have top-seven aspirations of their own, the latest looking to damage Solskjaer's reputation yet further. I'm Pete Hall, and I will be bringing you the action, as it happens, live!
