Why Alex Iwobi is missing for Everton vs Manchester United

Why Alex Iwobi is missing for Everton vs Manchester 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 shortly in the early kick-off.
