Manchester United vs Everton live stream: match preview

Beleaguered Everton make the short trip down the M62 to face a purring Manchester United today in the third round of the FA Cup. Both sides have bigger fish to fry this season, but a run in the world's oldest national football competition would give the fans something to cheer about regardless. Make sure you know how to watch a Manchester United vs Everton live stream from anywhere.

Team news is in for both sides and Erik ten Hag has made four changes to his starting XI, with Dalot, Varane and Malacia replacing Wan-Bissaka, Maguire and Lindelof in defence, and Antony returning from injury to take Donny van de Beek's place. Frank Lampard has also made four changes, with Coleman, Godfrey, Onana and Maupay taking the places of Patterson, Davies, McNeil and Calvert-Lewin.

After a wobbly start to Erik ten Hag's Manchester United tenure, the Dutchman has got the Red Devils firing on all cylinders now. Losing just once in all competitions since early October, Champions League qualification has become a realistic goal.

Marcus Rashford looks like a totally different player, while Casemiro and Christian Eriksen have given the midfield the kind of cohesion and control that Fred and McTominay could only dream of. What's more, United have only lost once to Everton in their last 29 meetings at the Theatre of Dreams. Can they stretch it to 30 today?

Everton earned a morale-boosting Premier League point against City on the other side of Manchester on New Year's Eve, but it all came crashing down with a chastening defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion back at home on Tuesday night.

The Toffees looked well and truly spooked by the rampant Seagulls and the task they face at Old Trafford suddenly looks much more daunting. Frank Lampard's side will need to perform more like they did at the Etihad than at Goodison if they're to have any chance of progressing here.

Manchester United vs Everton kicks off at 8pm GMT / 3pm EST today, at Old Trafford, Manchester. Make sure you know how to watch a Manchester United vs Everton live stream.
