Manchester United will be looking to maintain their position at the top of the table when they take on Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Here is the team I think Jose Mourinho will pick for the game:

Goalkeeper: No change required in goal as David De Gea is set to continue between the sticks this weekend with Sergio Romero once again on the bench.

Defence: However, there is expected to be plenty of changes at the back as Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are in contention to return after being suspended for Tuesday’s win over Basel.

Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof came in to help secure a clean sheet during the Champions League clash in midweek but the duo could still drop out on Sunday.

Antonio Valencia is also set for a recall at right-back with Ashley Young making way after impressing on his return to the side while Daley Blind should keep his place on the left despite Luke Shaw’s return to full fitness.

Midfield: Mourinho will be forced in to a change in midfield as Paul Pogba has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury that he sustained during the early stages against Basel.

Marouane Fellaini is favourite to come in after scoring the opener in midweek having replaced Pogba so the Belgian international may line-up alongside Nemanja Matic this weekend with Ander Herrera having to make do with a place on the bench.

Attack: Mourinho seems to be regularly rotating Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford on the left side so we could see the England international recalled on Sunday.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan should retain his place in the attacking midfield role while Juan Mata could also start once again on the right after impressing during the early stages of the season.

Romelu Lukaku continued his fine goal-scoring form with another strike in midweek so the Belgian international should once again lead the line up front.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
