Manchester United welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Sunday with the champions aiming to go one step closer to securing a 20th title.

United are currently five points clear of rivals Man City and should the Red Devils pick up all three points against the Toffees, they could seal the title at the Etihad next weekend.

Fergie’s men are on a stunning run of form that includes nine wins from their last ten league games, and have won their last seven home games in a row.

Everton will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Mersey rivals Liverpool in the semi finals of the FA Cup last weekend, but David Moyes’ side haven’t won at Old Trafford since 1992, so have their work cut out on Sunday.

Team news

Sir Alex Ferguson has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game. The United boss did confirm that Paul Pogba and Anderson will be out for the rest of the season through injury, but neither would have taken part in the game this weekend anyway.

Michael Owen is still a week away from being available, while Nemanja Vidic, Darren Fletcher and Anders Lindegaard are long-term absentees.

David Moyes got a major blow with the news that full back Leighton Baines is ruled out with a hamstring injury that he picked up during the Toffees FA Cup defeat to Liverpool last week.

Steven Pienaar missed the game at Wembley after being ineligible, but returns this weekend while Darron Gibson will play against his former club. However, Jack Rodwell remains out.
