Manchester United vs Everton LIVE: Erik ten Hag’s resurgent side face under-fire Toffees in the FA Cup third round, with pressure cranked up on Frank Lampard as he bids to stop rot

Follow Sportsmail’s live blog for the FA Cup third-round clash between Manchester United and Everton at Old Trafford.  

6′ Lampard looks on

Well, as starts go, that’s quite a good one from United isn’t it?

Lampard has an incredible poker face – it looks like he’s been turned to stone. 

United almost get a second after Martial has a dig from outside the box after being given a few yards of space. 

4′ GOAL! Man United 1-0 Everton

Antony gets the opener after just four minutes at Old Trafford. 

It comes from almost nothing, with the ball being switched out to Marcus Rashford on the left. 

Rashford takes on Godfrey and after no tackles comes in he just plays it across the box to the back post, where the Brazilian was waiting to tap in to the open net!

Gret start for United. Horrendous start for Everton. 

2′ Both sides getting touches on the ball

Everton have the ball early on, but their brief spell of possession comes to an end as Pickford looks for Iwobi with a long raking ball over the top. 

United then get there first touches of the ball and move up the pitch before the visitors win a free-kick. 

Still not quite used to seeing Shaw play at centre-back, but I’m sure Erik ten Hag knows a slight amount more than I do about tactics. 


Everton get us going as the FA Cup third round gets started at Old Trafford.

Here we go then, it’s almost time to kick off!

Turning up a notch

It was pretty loud a few moments ago, but it’s gone up a notch now if anything. 

They’re out on the pitch, with the stadium announcer running through the United side to start, with each name greeted by rapturous roars. 

And, as you’d imagine, all the Everton names received a less than welcoming response. 

A real ‘cup tie’

They’re lining up in the tunnels making ready to come out on to the pitch now.

Shoulder to shoulder at Old Trafford, occasions don’t get much bigger than that, do they?

This one already has the feel of a real ‘cup tie’.

‘The cement between the bricks’

Casemiro has been called ‘the cement between the bricks’ by Roy Keane in the studio. 

He has given the hosts a brilliant solidity that they’ve bee lacking for so long now, and looks to be a very transformative signing indeed. 

Also, ‘the cement between the bricks’ – incredible nickname. 

Away fans in full voice

The warm ups are over, it’s almost time to get underway.

Old Trafford is already roaring, but it’s the away fans that are making the most noise at the moment.


Right, just ten minutes to go now!

It’s a huge game to kick off this weekend’s FA Cup action, but who will come out on top?

Massive game for both sides, for different reasons of course, but expect some thrilling action at Old Trafford this evening!

Calvert-Lewin feeling a bit of tightness

It’s more or less the same side that drew against Man City for Everton tonight, but Calvert-Lewin is out, and Lampard has explained why. 

‘Dominic felt some fatigue during the Brighton game and then specifically the morning after.

‘Yesterday we had a long chat – the medical team’s advice and Dom’s feeling was that to start and play 90 minutes was probably a personal risk for him, so we had to consider that.’

Shaw to start at centre-back again

Erik ten Hag shares his thoughts on the game, as well as explains some of his team choices. 

Luke Shaw looks set for a few more minutes at centre-back tonight. 

🔺 Our aspirations in the #FACup
🔺 More centre-back minutes for @LukeShaw23
🔺 Recalls to the XI for @DalotDiogo and @Antony00

Two teams in contrast

Two very contrasting sides on our hands here. 

This is now the first time in a long time that United look to be approaching their best from years gone by – six games in a row unbeaten, the likes of Rashford and Martial back scoring, and a bit of an identity creeping into the side. 

And then Everton look to be the complete opposite – without a win in their last seven, only 14 goals scored in the league. 

But could tonight be the night that Lampard begins to revive his career at Goodison Park?

A whopping 209 meetings between the two in totoal

A whopping 209 meetings between these two in the past – 12 of those of course coming in this competition in the past.

91 wins for United, 71 for Everton – but who will come out on top tonight?

There’s a lot of history between tonight’s two sides ✨

Match No 511 for David de Gea

A huge achievement for David de Gea tonight. 

A lot of young players would bite your hand off for just one appearance for a club like United. 

Tonight the Spanish keeper will feature for the 511th time for the Red Devils – putting him 10th on the all-time list. 

Not too shabby.

Visitors getting a look at the ground

The away side have been out on the pitch…

Could United be helping Ronaldo out?

We couldn’t have a Man United game and not mention him!

He’s not been gone long, but could Manchester United be about to help former star Cristiano Ronaldo out following his acrimonious departure?

The forward is yet to be registered for Al Nassr despite his simply stupendous £175m-a-year deal at the club – but a loan swoop for Vincent Aboubakar could prove decisive.

For more, read below.

And the Toffees could lose yet another defensive player in the transfer market. 

Their 29-year-old centre-back Michael Keane may be under contract until 2025, but he could be on his way out of Goodison Park, with Southampton interested in his services. 

The defender – capped 12 times for England – is wanted on loan by the Saints, but his current side are only interested in a permanent departure. 

For the full story, click below. 

Bottom of the Premier League table on just 12 points from 18 games, the Saints see Keane as a strong option, given his leadership qualities and wealth of Premier League experience.

The visitors look to veteran Seamus Coleman in defence after a nasty injury to Scottish right-back Nathan Patterson. 

The 21-year-old is set for a six-week spell on the sidelines. 

For all the information, see below. 

The 21-year-old was forced off just an hour into the Toffees heavy 4-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday evening. The injury to the right-back comes as a major blow to Everton.
What a season for Rashford so far

United’s player of the month keeps his place in the side, and what a season Marcus Rashford has been having so far!

12 goals and four assists so far this season for his club off the back of a poor 2021-22 campaign – but can he add to his tally tonight?

Three full-backs for United, three centre-backs for Everton

Three full-backs in the side for United – you’d expect that one of them will be filling in at centre-back with Varane, with Maguire and Lindelof both out the team. 

Antony comes back in, supporting Martial with Rashford to form a quite formidable attack. 

For the Toffees, it’s a defensive team that will be on show tonight, with Godfrey, Coady and Tarkowski all in the side, although it remains to be seen how they will line-up on the pitch. 

A return for Maupay up top to lead the line – he’s only had the one goal all season, so hopefully for Everton fans he’s been saving himself for a big performance. 

Four changes apiece

Four changes from Everton, with Coleman, Godfrey, Maupay and Onana coming into the side as Everton look to play with a back five against United tonight. 

As for the hosts, it’s four changes too from the side that beat Bournemouth three days ago. 

And it’s another change of shape, seemingly, with Dalot and Malacia coming in with Shaw keeping his place. Varane and Antony also ome into the side, with Van de Beek, Maguire, Lindelof and Wan Bissaka dropping out. 

Here we go then – your teams for tonight!

Not a game that anyone would want to miss, this one, and these spectators at least have made an early start for their seats!

Evening, Reds! 🥰

Frank Lampard has oddly never lost an FA Cup tie against Manchester United.

He beat them twice and drew once as a player, and then beat them in the semi-finals of the 2019-20 competition with Chelsea, although he went on to lose the final to Arsenal.

Perhaps the boss is the lucky charm that Everton need to get their season back on track with a statement win tonight then?


And Erik ten Hag has increased his side’s chances tonight by turning Old Trafford into something of a fortress. 

Following the victory over Bournemouth three days ago, the Red Devils have not conceded in the league since September!

Theatre of Nightmares for Everton

Old Trafford. The Theatre of Dreams. One of football’s greatest venues.

But not for the Toffees, who have won just once in their last 29 trips to play United.

Their last win was a 1-0 victory in December 2013 – when former Everton boss David Moyes was in fact in charge of the Red Devils.

It’s coincidentally Everton’s first away game in the FA Cup against United since a quarter-final loss in the 1982-83 tournament.

But United have an even better record

But as far as third round records go, United’s is pretty hard to top 

In their last 37 attempts, United have only ever lost in the third round twice, which bodes well for tonight.

But the bad news is that both of those defeats came at home in the last 13 years.

The Red Devils were beaten by historic rivals Leeds in 2009-10, and Swansea in 2013-14 in the days of the great Spaniard Michu, although he had no involvement in the game.

10 from 14 for Everton in the third round

It will be some comfort then for Lampard to know that his side have progressed from 10 of their last 14 third round FA Cup ties.

Not that much comfort, though, given that those four losses all came against Premier League sides.

They’ve been eliminated before the quarter-finals a staggering 62.7% of the time, but the Toffees did reach the quarter-finals in both of the last two tournaments.

Pressure building for Lampard

Tonight’s game is played against the backdrop of extraordinary pressure on Toffees boss Frank Lampard’s shoulders.

The calls for him to be sacked reached a fever pitch with the 4-1 loss at home to Brighton three days ago.

To relive the action from that one, see below.

EVERTON 1-4 BRIGHTON – DOMINIC KING AT GOODISON PARK: Big questions will be asked about Frank Lampard’s future after Everton suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat.

Tonight’s meeting at Old Trafford will be the 13th game between the two in the FA Cup.

And the spoils have more or less been shared, with both sides winning on six occasions in the past.

But it is the first time they’re colliding in the third round of the competition, and the earliest since a second round tie in 1908-09.

United in the house

The hosts wasted no time at all in getting to the ground tonight.

They’ve been there since around 5pm – wonder what Erik ten Hag has got cooking…

He’s spoken about his preparation for tonight’s game already with United’s club media.

Both sides have pedigree in the competition

Only Arsenal (14) have won more FA Cup titles than Manchester United’s tally of 12, with the most recent coming back in 2016.

Everton do also have some success in the competition, with five wins in their long history, although they have not lifted the trophy since 1995.

The Toffees have been runners-up eight times, with tonight’s opponents beating them 1-0 after extra time in the 1985 final, courtesy of a Norman Whiteside goal.

Safe to say both sides are pumped up for this one…

🏆 The FA Cup.

It’s prestigious. It’s inspiring. It’s tradition.

The magic of the cup!

The phrase that everybody loves to hate – it’s the magic of the cup!

But will we see some of that magic from a surprise package? Sportsmail have taken a look at the youngsters that could become heroes for their club as the third round of football’s oldest competition roles into town.

Sportsmail takes a look at 10 youngsters at Premier League clubs desperate for an opportunity this third round weekend as managers ring the changes amid a hectic schedule.
A typical Manchester day so far…

A quick weather report ahead of kick-off, and it’s been what you might call a typical Manchester January day.

Highs of nine degrees expected at 8pm, and there’s been a generous helping of rain to boot.

An air of the ‘classic FA Cup tie’ about the conditions. With a wet deck and plenty of rain, I’d expect plenty of agricultural tackles and heat to be generated from the players in this one.

Doesn’t look too shabby from this angle, though, does it?


Good evening everyone and welcome to tonight’s live action as Manchester United take on Everton!
