Everton are unbeaten in their last seven games in the Barclays Premier League and Capital One Cup, winning four and drawing three since they were beaten 2-0 at home by Manchester City. But Roberto Martinez's men won only once at home in the league so far, drawing two and losing another.

Manchester United, meanwhile, arrive at Everton in third place following their shock 3-0 defeat at Arsenal a fortnight ago. That loss was only United's second of the season but both have come on the road - the other was at Swansea - and the fact is 10 of their 16 points have come at Old Trafford.

While United's record overall at Goodison is impressive, recent trips have been less productive. In 23 games in the Premier League at Goodison, United have won 15, drawn two and lost only six.

However, in their last seven trips there they have won once - in October 2011 - while drawing two and losing four. And in their last three trips to the blue half of Merseyside United have lost all three without scoring. Indeed, United have gone 341 minutes since Javier Hernandez scored United's last goal there, in a 1-0 victory four years ago.
