True legend: Rooney deserves legend's welcome at United - Mourinho

Lukaku had previously been branded a'flat-track bully but his record disproves that

Everton have attempted just seven shots on target in their four Premier League games this season; a joint-low alongside Swansea City, with just one of these coming in their last two matches.

"I think he [Rooney] will get the welcome he deserves". Mourinho has used Matic, and the former Juventus man in the central midfield position this season. This is not the case. He is a real legend of this club. Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four league goals this season, will be leading United's lines against his former club.

Manager Ronald Koeman must have had spent a huge amount of money on signings, but Lukaku's departure appears to be having a bigger impact on the Toffees.

"He has nothing to prove, of course not".

"Some people will say he needs to work harder, define his role in the team and what his lead quality is". "He started the season really well, we've had one match per week we've been going with the same players".

Another forward facing his old club is Romelu Lukaku.

He'll want to score a goal and put on a performance and he'll want Everton to play well.

"They are a strong team and ever year they have been a hard opponent". But he is glad I have come to Everton and not Liverpool, put it that way'.

But despite the comfortable victory in midweek, Mourinho tore into his players, whom he accused of being unprofessional when leading 2-0, saying that they took their foot off the pedal. "That is an opportunity for others and the others are ready to get that opportunity and perform".

Speaking after the match against Basel, Mourinho admitted he was unaware of the extent of the injury but stressed that he would not "cry" after Pogba's latest setback.

Both Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo have been on the treatment table for some time, and it seems that when it comes to Shaw at least, Mourinho is hopeful he can be back in contention for a place soon. "[They have] lots of good players, a good team, [it will be] a very hard match for us".

Historically, it has been a classic fixture. The all-time record is a mixed bag of results, but United have a slight edge thanks to 85 wins, 44 draws and 66 defeats in 195 meetings across all competitions stretching back to 1892.

Manchester United are undefeated at home this season, notching three wins in three games across all competitions.
