Matchday 32

Everton v Manchester United

Goodison Park

Kick-off is at 13h30  
 
Manchester United will look to get their faltering top-four challenge back on track when they visit Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, April 9.
 
Ralf Rangnick's side dropped more crucial points in a 1-1 draw against Leicester at Old Trafford last weekend, which left them three points adrift of the Champions League places in seventh position.
 
The Red Devils have only won two of their last five matches to pick up just eight points out of a possible 15.

Rangnick has called on his players to finish the season strongly and not focus on the teams above them in the race to clinch a top-four spot.
 
"I cannot tell that [whether the top-four race is over]. I don't know where Manchester United will be next season," the German said. "For us, it's my job, our job, the job of all of the players, to finish this season on the highest and best possible note.
 
"It doesn't help at all to look at the table every week and speculate and anticipate what could happen and about how many points we may need. Now it's about how can we possibly get three points against Everton."
 
Relegation remains a possibility for the Toffees after a fourth defeat in five games sees them hovering three points above the bottom three in 17th place.
 
Frank Lampard's charges arrested a three-match losing streak when they beat Newcastle 1-0 before the international break, only to be beaten 2-1 by West Ham this past weekend.

However, Lampard is confident of beating the drop after seeing enough in their performance against the Hammers to suggest the players can save their season.
 
"We deserved more, at 1-1 I fancied us to be the stronger team and push to score the second. There were so many positives, in terms of how we approached the game against a good team," he said.
 
"We certainly deserved a point. Everything is going against us: decisions, moments in games, red cards.
 
"I can't fault the players' character or their play. There were mistakes, maybe, but West Ham made mistakes, too, and it didn't fall our way. The performance was really positive and we have 10 more games to perform like that."
