Man. Utd. prepare to entertain Everton at Old Trafford at tea-time on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Red Devils are clearly on top, having won 47 and lost only 18 of the 85 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Old Trafford was just last season, in December 2007, the Red Devils carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premier League match.
