A vital boost or two in attack could aid Manchester United in their clash with Everton this weekend.Marcus Rashford was pictured in training on Thursday having been taken off in the defeat to Manchester City last weekend due to an injury.However, there was no sign of Jonny Evans in the images released by the club ahead of a full update from Erik ten Hag on Friday.The veteran defender only lasted an hour in the derby having struggled with an unspecified issue beforehand.United will be hoping to unleash Rasmus Hojlund sooner rather than later having set a timeframe of at least two weeks for the striker to recover from a muscle injury – which was announced 15 days before the lunchtime visit of Everton.Ten Hag set his team up to grind out a result in the derby but will be expected to revert to a more offensive style for a meeting with the relegation-threatened Toffees.Antony, Amad Diallo, Omari Forson and Christian Eriksen are all attack-minded options to enter the starting line-up while Willy Kwambala and Sofyan Amrabat could drop into the defence if Evans is absent.There is, as yet, no indication that United will be able to welcome back any of their troop of injured stars, which includes Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Mason Mount, Lisandro Martinez and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.Predicted Man Utd XI: Onana; Dalot, Varane, Lindelof, Amrabat; Mainoo, Casemiro; Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho; RashfordDoubts: EvansInjuries: Mount, Martinez, Malacia, Hojlund, Maguire, Shaw, MartialTime and date: 12.30pm GMT, Saturday March 9, 2024Venue: Old TraffordTV channel: TNT Sports
