Thoughts From Both Camps

“Everton have a good away record, better than their home record – it is very strange. When you also see the history of the last matches against them – not my history, but other recent games – it is not so good. Everton are, as an opponent, very difficult for Manchester United, but I hope my record shall continue.”

– Louis van Gaal, Manchester United.

“It is as simple as wanting to get back to our best level. It is a game in which we want to test ourselves. Our away record has been very strong this season and we want to get back to feeling good about ourselves and that will allow the result to come. We want to start the game well, adapt to what is needed at Old Trafford and  perform well in this game straightaway.”

– Roberto Martinez, Everton.
