Plenty of goals in Manchester United squad, says Romelu Lukaku

Cristiano Ronaldo is not happy with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

Romelu Lukaku will line up against his former employers for the first time since making the summer switch to United and punters may decide to use their free bet on the striker firing his new team to all three points.

Mourinho rotated the side slightly during the game against FC Basel.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman has warned Everton's players their former colleague Romelu Lukaku's purple patch will continue if they do not improve defensively at Old Trafford. Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellani, Michael Carrick: they're waiting for a chance and they are ready.

"I think he'll get the welcome that he deserves", Mourinho said. "To me, to the team and to the club". But with the quality of Lemar potentially available, he would surely want nothing more than to see the French talisman dressed in a United kit and, at just 21, see him become a United hero for years to come.

However, Mourinho was less positive about a couple of United's other injured players.

Manchester United have no suspension issues prior to this encounter.

The match will be played at Old Trafford, where United have been unbeatable this season.

With this, attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be expected to put in an overtime shift, with both creativity and penetration.

One characteristic Fellaini possesses in spades, however, is determination.

"You just have to respect the player's desire, and what they decide". But United are on top form at the moment, and a win would secure them the top of the standings for one more week at least. His attitude is flawless and he never fails to give his best.

In terms of Rojo, his importance to the side was huge last season, and losing him to injury was a big blow for Mourinho - and while the defence has coped without him, the United boss will be counting down the days until he returns.

The 21-year-old was linked with a potential move to Serie A duo AS Roma and Inter Milan in the summer transfer window but Manchester United refused to consider selling Martial. While Manchester United have won their three home games this season, Everton are riding a three-game losing streak.

Mourinho is understood to have asked Fellaini to prove he was worth keeping at the club while under such relentless scrutiny from the fans.
