The start of the Premier League season is just around the corner, and the red side of Manchester face a short trip down the M62 to face the blue side of Liverpool. An away trip to Everton is a far more difficult fixture than Sir Alex Ferguson would have wanted to welcome the new season in with.
With the summer additions of Robin Van Persie and Shinji Kagawa, Manchester United seem determined to take back the Premier League crown from their arch cross-city rivals, Manchester City.
Manchester United face an extremely difficult task at the hands of Everton – something which was confirmed last season when United threw away a 4-2 lead in the last 8 minutes to draw the game 4-4 and drop a valuable 2 points in the championship run in.
Everton have been busy in the transfer market over the summer. Steven Pienaar re-joined the Toffees from Tottenham for an undisclosed fee, and will be keen to show manager David Moyes he was right to bring the South-African back to Merseyside. Jack Rodwell went the other way out of the door, and joined Manchester City in a reported £12million deal. Another product of Everton’s youth academy, Rodwell joins Wayne Rooney in leaving Everton for one of the Manchester clubs.
