Rooney sets Premier League record after trading Man Utd for Everton

Rooney sets Premier League record after trading Man Utd for Everton

Everton will grind out a hard-fought win in this one.

Yannick Bolasie and Ramiro Funes Mori continue to recover from long term injuries while Aaron Lennon is still doubtful after being held out of the Europa League qualifier last week.

Romelu Lukaku can open his Manchester United account by scoring first against West Ham tomorrow at odds of 5-2.

Everton have yet to receive any bids for their homegrown midfielder, despite his entering the final year of his contract and refusing to sign a new deal.

Predicted Everton Starting Lineup: Pickford; Martina, Keane, Williams, Baines; Gueye, Schneiderlin; Calvert-Lewin, Klaassen, Mirallas; Rooney.

Everton's two qualifiers were sandwiched in between four other pre-season friendlies, which concluded with a 2-2 home draw against Sevilla last weekend. The Toffees have impressed in pre-season too, winning two and drawing two of their last four games this summer, and took four points off Stoke in the Premier League in 2016/17. It is always better to start at home than away.

Stephen Ireland is "a matter of weeks" away from a return while Ibrahim Afellay is still sidelined, having undergone knee surgery.

The striker looks to have the physicality and keen eye for goal to thrive in the Premier League, but does he have the right mentality?

Stoke are embarking on their 10th consecutive Premier League season.

Mark Hughes has also revealed Saido Berahino is in great shape and could start.

Gareth Barry could feature in his 21st Premier League season, a record only bettered by Ryan Giggs (22).

Everton manager Ronald Koeman: "You smell and feel the motivation of the players to start this Saturday".

That move, honed in pre-season, almost paid dividends as Everton new boy Pickford had to tip his early cross around the post, with former Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen then having attempts blocked as the hosts stuttered.

If they can get Sigurdsson then they will be a certainty for seventh. The additions should make the team much stronger than before.
