Benitez confirms key trio out of Everton’s clash with Man United

Benitez confirms key trio out of Everton’s clash with Man United

Man United vs Everton

Everton have enjoyed a fine start to life under Rafael Benitez.

The Spaniard has now taken charge of six Premier League games with the Toffees. Benitez has won four of these, drawing one and losing the remaining tie.

This run of results has seen Everton climb up to 5th in the Premier League table, only one point off top spot and level on points with 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

However, their next clash looks set to be the club’s toughest of the season to date.

The Merseysiders have not faced any of the top six thus far in 2021/22, but are set to take on Manchester United at Old Trafford in the early kick-off on Saturday.

Rafa Benitez on Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin & more

Prior to the game, Rafa Benitez would hold his latest pre-match press conference on Friday.

One of the main talking points in the presser was understandably injury news, as Everton had some key players missing for their last outing vs Norwich, including Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Seamus Coleman.

However, Toffees fans should not expect any of that trio back on Saturday, with Benitez having confirmed that all three players, as well as Andre Gomes, remain out.

Rafa also spoke briefly about Richarlison and his future, revealing that he had lunch with the Brazilian on Thursday and ‘everything was positive’:

“Yesterday I had lunch with him and he was happy, we talked about the future and his situation. It was a very nice conversation and everything was positive.”
