As the finale draws near, Manchester United will face Everton at Old Trafford, looking to maintain their six-point lead at the top in a bid to win a record 19th title.

The last time the two sides met in the Premier League, United let slip a two-goal lead, conceding two in injury time to draw 3-3 with an Everton side languishing in the relegation zone. The red devils will be looking to avoid any such slip-ups today. With five games remaining, United will have to face potential title deciders against Arsenal and Chelsea, both teams who are six points behind them.

However, United will have one eye on Tueday's Champions League clash with Schalke 04 and Everton have a reason to be hopeful of snatching a point or more. Everton have found form and are unbeaten in their last seven enounters, and have won six of their last nine. The Toffees will also hope to put an end to a long-drawn record - they haven't won at Old Trafford in 19 years.

Team News -

United have Scholes suspended, Fletcher and Hargreaves injured while Berbatov and Ferdinand are doubtful.

Everton have Baxter, Fellaini and Saha all injured while Cahill, Arteta and Heitinga all are doubtful.

Prediction -

If United win today they will have a nine point lead, heaping pressure on second placed Chelsea who play later on, and they will look to do just that. However, United are expected to rest some players and Everton will look to snatch a point. Expect a narrow win for United.
