The early kick off on Easter Sunday sees Manchester United travel to play Everton at Goodison Park. 

A win for Everton will take them back into 7th place, which may be good enough to qualify for Europe next season. Meanwhile United need a win to boost their hopes of playing Champions League football in 2019/20.

The match kicks off at 1.30pm and it is live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event. Here are the factz you need to know:

* Goals from Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were enough for United to sink Everton in the reverse fixture. Gylfi Sigurdsson hit The Toffees’ reply.

* However, United have lost their last 4 away games in all competitions.
* Everton lost last time out but had won their previous three.
* United haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 10 matches in all competitions.

Here are the factz you need to know:

Brighton & Hove Albion v AFC Bournemouth

Fulham v Everton

* Three second half goals took Everton to a comfortable 3-0 win at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture.
