Jose Mourinho not expecting goals record for Romelu Lukaku

Manchester United are eager to achieve a lot this season.

That will mean United will have to make do without his services for Premier League meetings with Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace.

The Belgium global has made a flying start to his Old Trafford career, scoring six times in his first six appearances in all competitions, and, on Sunday, comes up against former club Everton following his £75million switch from Goodison Park in July.

Fellaini's staying power and his utter devotion to whatever manager is in charge make him a huge favourite.

The home team will be without Paul Pogba, who sustained a hamstring injury in the Champions League fixture against the Swiss outfit.

Muller's happiness to remain at the Allianz Arena is bad news for United, who are reportedly still keen on the Germany global. Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will remain out as well, and neither should be available before November at the earliest.

If Manchester United have been dominant and consistent, unfortunately we would have to say the opposite about Everton.

Ronald Koeman did not use his full strength in Italy, but with a team boasting the likes of Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Morgan Schneiderlin, Leighton Baines and Michael Keane he would have expected better.

"I think he'll put it to the back of his mind", Lingard told MUTV.

Marouane Fellaini, who was Pogba's substitute on Wednesday, went on to score a goal and assist another, and he will be more than eager to fill the shoes of the Frenchman. Ander Herrera has been tipped to replace Pogba against Everton, with the Spain midfielder having not been involved in the matchday squad for the win over Basel. And they need to improve massively if they want to contend for a European berth during the final weeks of the campaign. Sandro needs time to adapt to the Premier League.

Long-term issues plague Yannick Bolasie, Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman.

James McCarthy is a doubt due to a knee injury.

"We know him really well", Koeman said of Lukaku.

The sides couldn't be separated last season, with 1-1 draws on both occasions.

The all-time record, however, gives Manchester United the edge.

The Red Devils haven't lost to their opponents in their last five meetings in all competitions. He is backing Manchester United to beat Everton 2-1.
