Shaw and Wan-Bissaka back - How Man Utd could line up against Everton

The full-back pairing missed Manchester United's Champions League victory over Villarreal during the week

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping Cristiano Ronaldo's dramatic late winner against Villarreal in the Champions League can catalyse a run of form heading into October.

Over the past few weeks United have lost against Young Boys in the Champions League, lost against Aston Villa in the Premier League, and been knocked out of the League Cup by West Ham.

Versus Villarreal, they were again uninspiring, having to rely on Ronaldo to bail them out late on.

They face a tough task this Saturday when they take on Everton, who have been revitalised under Rafa Benitez.

David de Gea was back to his best with a string of excellent saves on Wednesday and he has established himself as the undisputed number one again ahead of Dean Henderson.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka missed the Villarreal game due to suspension but he will return for domestic duties against the Toffees, while Luke Shaw is expected to be passed fit after a slight muscular issue ruled him out midweek.

Harry Maguire will miss a few weeks of action due to a calf problem so Victor Lindelof will partner Raphael Varane in the middle.

Fred could come into midfield to partner Scott McTominay, with Jadon Sancho dropping down to the bench.

That will allow Paul Pogba to move slightly further forward down the left in an attacking midfield three alongside Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood.

Ronaldo will start up front, though Edinson Cavani is pushing to be involved also.

Marcus Rashford and Amad Diallo are both out.
