    On this very significant day, gonna spread some love and positivity in this thread.

    Saturday evening match for our enjoyment, prime time slot at eight o clock.

    Really, it's case of pick up where we left off. Everton at home, nothing to fear, right?

    Don't look at the table Ole, just remember when you used to play, and beat, them every time.

    Personally I'd bring Pogba back but then Fred and McTominay do work well together. This time for me, Fred should step aside.

    Cavani up front, Rashford on the left, give Greenwood and other go on the right, but time running out for him there with maybe Diallo given a go soon.

    With Liverpool and City playing tomorrow we could be 7 points clear of Liverpool or level on points with City after they've played.

    A real potential to make this game count.

    Pogba returns. Cavani upfront.

    Looks like a decent line up.

    Let's do this :emoticon-0165-muscl

    Who could have possibly suggested this line up, eh?

    'Must win' game given City's upcoming fixtures. Good team selection - and a very strong bench too.

    Frustrating isn't it, watching Cavani line up?

    Same as when we had Zlatan, you just think why the **** did we not sign this bloke five years earlier.

    Same as Larsson, these nuggets are out there, but a year ago we probably would have had to pay PSG tens of millions to get Cavani. Hopefully he will extend his contract, he's well worth the money - even if it's only for our young strikers to learn from his movement off the ball.

    I was less fussed about Larsson as he was stop gap in a period we were really successful anyway.

    Did think it weird he didn't take a punt in having a full season with us mind.

    Zlatan though, ****ing hell, had we had him two years sooner and then also he not be injured. The bloke was genuinely awesome, still is.

    Cavani has that persona, proper player.

    He also wasted a bit too much time at PSG in a Mikey Mouse league!

    Go Cavani, go vintage strikers. He's 33 - you would never think to look at his movement and speed on the ball. Perhaps we should sign a 'vintage striker' every couple of years to pepe up the squad - CR7 next .....

    We were completely dominating.

    Totally dominant first half.

    Got off to a quick start. I thought Everton passed the ball well at the start but we just took control as the game went on.

    Everton always in it at 1-0 so glad we got the 2nd goal cushion. Not over yet though but it helps!

    This is the way to deal with rivals, eh?

    The way forward, definitely.

    Can only repeat what I said at kick off, such a shame we didn't get hold of Cavani sooner. He's like the ultimate No.9.

    As for Fernandes, what can you actually say?

    Good game so far. We need to keep it up and keep pressing their back 4. Another goal wouldn’t go amiss.
