Five Things To Look For

David Moyes returns to Goodison Park for the first time as an opposition manager on Sunday as United face Everton in the Barclays Premier League.

Blues reunion Moyes spent over 11 years in charge of the Toffees but now goes up against them on his first return to his former club. He will be eager to seal victory against his old employers and avenge December’s 1-0 home defeat in the process. He’s not the only one set for a reunion at Goodison – first team coach Phil Neville and midfielder Marouane Fellaini were both part of Everton’s playing squad last season, while Jimmy Lumsden and Steve Round were part of the backroom staff before following Moyes to Old Trafford.

Euro chase Both sides are chasing European football for next season, so this clash could prove crucial in attaining that target. The Reds’ most realistic goal appears to be a Europa League place, while Roberto Martinez’s men are looking to catch Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualification, following a surprise home defeat to Crystal Palace on Wednesday. It means there’s still plenty to play for and should make for an intriguing contest.

Flying forwards United have hit four goals in each of the last two league outings, sealing comfortable victories over Aston Villa and Newcastle. Juan Mata has opened his account with three of those strikes, while Javier Hernandez has also shown a clinical touch, finding the net in both outings. With plenty of in-form attacking options at Moyes’ disposal, this could be another high-scoring affair.

Goodison glee The Reds have a good record away to Everton in the Premier League, winning 14, drawing three and losing four of 21 visits. However, we have only recorded one victory in our previous five trips there and Martinez’s side have lost just three times at home since the beginning of last season. It will be tough to return with maximum points, although United have a better chance than most with the best away record in the top flight so far in 2013/14.

Playing for places Over the course of the remaining five games, players will be out to impress Moyes ahead of next season. It’s an opportunity for the boss to start shaping his squad for the following campaign and to consider who the key figures could be. Some sides may ease up in the closing weeks, but you can be sure that United will want to end on a high by building on the recent league successes.

What do you think the score will be against Everton?

Rooney, Fellaini fit

Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed both Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini are available to face old club Everton, but Robin van Persie, Rafael and Jonny Evans are still out injured.

"Rooney trained great this week and has been in really good form," Moyes said. "We're hopefully getting him back as he wasn't quite right with his toe at times. He's trained great though."

De Gea vows Euro push

David De Gea says the Reds will do everything to qualify for European football next season over the remainder of the current campaign.

United face a tough task to break into the top four and secure a Champions League spot but reaching the Europa League looks a more realistic aim.

Fresh from being named our March Player of the Month, De Gea told ManUtd.com: "There are still plenty of important games to play.

"We want to finish as high as we can in the league, ensure we're playing in a European competition next season and show we are still around and that we will never give in."

#MUonthisday - Stam joins the 100 club

Former centre-back Jaap Stam made his 100th appearance for the Reds on this day in 2000. He signed for £10.6 million from PSV Eindhoven in 1999 and was, at the time, the most expensive defender in history, but proved to be worth every penny.

Stam was a key part of the side that famously captured the Treble during his first campaign at Old Trafford, forming an effective partnership with Ronny Johnsen. He won the Premier League title in each of his three seasons with United.

After making 127 appearances he left to join Lazio in 2001. He later had spells with AC Milan and Ajax, while at international level he played at the 1998 World Cup with the Netherlands and won 67 caps for his country.

Who is your all-time favourite United defender?

#MUonthisday: Law's last treble

On this day in 1971, Denis Law scored his 18th and final hat-trick for United in a 5-3 win at Crystal Palace. Law's tally of trebles remains a club record, and to mark the occasion we're looking at the other players who have hit three most often.

Jack Rowley: 12 hat-tricks
Rowley incredibly netted four times in only his second game for United aged just 17, and also once scored five in an 8-0 hammering of Yeovil Town.

Dennis Viollet: 9 hat-tricks
Along with Tommy Taylor, Viollet hit a hat-trick in the Reds' first-ever home European fixture, as he bagged four in a 10-0 rout of Anderlecht in 1956.

Bobby Charlton: 7 hat-tricks
Sir Bobby's first hat-trick came, appropriately enough, against Charlton Athletic. It took him to a stunning tally of seven goals in just his sixth senior appearance.

Wayne Rooney: 7 hat-tricks
Rooney wasted no time with three goals on his United debut against Fenerbahce. His most recent treble was in a 5-0 win at Bolton in September 2011.

Which is your favourite Reds hat-trick?

#KnowYourUnited: Sandy Turnbull

Sandy Turnbull made his 100th appearance for the Reds on this day in 1910, finding the net in a 2-0 home victory over Sunderland. He was a prolific forward and a key part of Ernest Mangnall's successful United side in the early 1900s.

Despite arriving from local rivals Manchester City he proved an instant hit, helping to win league titles in 1908 and 1911, as well as scoring the only goal to defeat Bristol City in the 1909 FA Cup final as the Reds won the FA Cup for the first time.

He managed 101 goals in 247 games but his career ended in scandal as he was one of several players banned for life for match-fixing, although this was later posthumously lifted. He tragically died in battle in 1917, while serving for Britain in World War I.
