Match Preview

Moyes hoping for repeat showing against United Everton boss David Moyes believes repeating last season's victory over Manchester United could kickstart his side's campaign. The Merseysiders began the new Barclays Premier League term with high expectations but have collected just one point from their opening three games. Moyes is convinced his side should be challenging at the top end of the table and is looking for a lift as United visit Goodison Park, where they were beaten 3-1 in February. Moyes said: "It would give us all that belief that we can mix it with the top sides. "We feel if we play well we can be a match for any side, and that includes Manchester United. "We went into the season with high hopes, rightly so, we had played so well. "At the end of last season we lost two out of 24 and we had a pretty good pre-season. "I could come out and say we want to avoid relegation and let's see where we go from there. "I probably come out with that statement every year but I didn't this year. "I said we had a good team and probably our best squad. "I stand by that but we have not shown it in results so far." With Louis Saha out for three weeks with a calf injury, that places extra pressure on summer signing Jermaine Beckford. The former Leeds striker is still to open his top-flight account but Moyes does not want to overburden the 26-year-old, even though he is almost certain to start against United. Beckford, however, does have happy memories of playing Sir Alex Ferguson's side having scored the goal for Leeds which knocked them out of the FA Cup in January. Moyes said: "To come from League One and start scoring goals in the Premier League, it is a big ask - but I have got no doubts he will. "He should be given the same time, the same opportunities (as others), but it can take a little bit of time to establish yourself." One player Moyes will be without for the time being is highly-rated midfielder Jack Rodwell. The 19-year-old has been ruled out for up to three months with an ankle injury sustained in the Villa defeat. Meanwhile, Ferguson has admitted Manchester United's trips to Everton are always "a nightmare" even without taking into account the Wayne Rooney factor. After six days of his best player being plastered over the front pages because of those damning allegations in his private life, it took Ferguson just 16 words to inform the world he would not be responsible for any further comment. Words might have been exchanged behind closed doors but a feature of Ferguson's illustrious managerial career, which reaches its 700th Premier League game on Saturday, is an ability to protect his players from further suffering, whether self-inflicted or not. The attitude has so often been rewarded in the past and, when his team run out at Goodison Park, Ferguson will hope Rooney responds in the appropriate manner. "Let's put it to bed straightaway," said the United boss. "I am not discussing any of my players' personal lives. "It is always a nightmare going there and it wouldn't matter whether it was Dixie Dean playing for us. It is a hard place to go to. "The atmosphere is fantastic. But we have had to deal with it for many years and there is no problem with our record there." Indeed, while, by his own admission, United were slaughtered in the corresponding fixture last year, Ferguson's team have lost just three times at Goodison in the entire Premier League era. Their chances of success this time around have been increased by both Everton's poor form and the return of Ferguson's huge international contingent, including Rooney, 24 hours earlier than usual. For that, United have the new international fixture calendar to thank, which, in the case of Tuesday matches, Ferguson is hugely appreciative. "It is the best decision FIFA have made in my time here," he said. "I don't know why it has not been done before. "It gives club managers a great boost and is not a problem for the international managers because they still have 10 days with their players." If he does play, Rooney is expected to be accompanied by Rio Ferdinand. There was a stage when Ferguson did not expect to have the England skipper back until the end of the month. However, Ferdinand's recovery from the knee injury he suffered in that freak World Cup training ground collision with Emile Heskey has been so swift and so successful, Ferguson opted not to let him play a reserve team game against Stockport.

Match Report

Toffees comeback stuns United Everton scored twice in stoppage time to snatch a dramatic 3-3 draw at home to Manchester United, who left Wayne Rooney out of their squad after a week of allegations about his private life. Rooney did not even travel to Goodison Park as manager Sir Alex Ferguson, on the occasion of his 700th Premier League match, claimed he wanted to protect the 24-year-old from abuse from the fans with whom he used to be a favourite. The disruption appeared to affect his team-mates early on as they fell behind to a Steven Pienaar goal but Darren Fletcher, Nemanja Vidic and Dimitar Berbatov put United well ahead before the Toffees' stunning late comeback through Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta. Ferguson has overseen plenty of player controversies during his lengthy tenure at Old Trafford, dealing with the likes of David Beckham's celebrity lifestyle and Roy Keane's unique brand of criticism. However, leaving out a player to protect him from opposition fans is unprecedented and surely unlikely to be repeated. Whether it affected the overall result is open to debate but when the England international next appears, likely to be in Tuesday's Champions League clash against Rangers he will get nothing less than a rousing Old Trafford reception. Rooney's absence seemed to affect United more than they expected as, for the first 15 minutes, they found themselves under constant pressure. Arteta's sixth-minute free-kick was tipped over by Edwin van der Sar, although referee Martin Atkinson did not spot the goalkeeper's touch. The Spaniard had another shot deflected behind by Jonny Evans, Pienaar saw his shot from the Spaniard's corner blocked and Leon Osman blazed over all in the same passage of play. Ferguson was less than happy and was soon prowling his technical area barking orders at the players. John O'Shea's response was a blistering drive from the left angle of the penalty area which grazed the outside of Tim Howard's left-hand post. Everton's pressure, albeit slightly less intense, continued while Nani was off the field having a cut lip tended with Cahill, Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines all failed to trouble the goalkeeper with half-chances. There was always the danger their failure to capitalise on possession would leave the way open for United to nick a goal and they almost did in the 34th minute. Tony Hibbert's foul on Ryan Giggs, despite winning the ball, saw Nani roll the free-kick to Paul Scholes and his powerful drive took a big deflection off Cahill but Howard, diving in the opposite direction, somehow diverted the ball over with his foot. Four minutes later the American goalkeeper stuck up a hand to palm away Giggs' close-range shot after United counter-attacked. But the visitors were caught cold themselves when Patrice Evra missed an ambitious overhead-kick clearance to put Arteta charging through on goal and although he shot straight at Van der Sar, Leon Osman turned the rebound to Pienaar at the far post who rolled home. Two minutes before half-time, however, Nani's cross was diverted home by Fletcher and Berbatov's volley almost put them ahead in added time. It was apparent at the start of the second half Everton were in for a tougher test and it took just three minutes for that to become a reality. Nani's corner from Berbatov's deflected shot was only half-cleared and when Scholes returned the ball to the Portugal international wide on the right he swung over a cross for an unmarked Vidic to head in from five yards. It at least provoked a reaction from Everton and Pienaar's curling 20-yard shot was held by Van der Sar at the second attempt. But United were where they like to be, in control and able to counter-attack, and one rapid foray forward saw Howard deny Nani low to his right. He got nowhere near the next one in the 66th minute, which owed everything to the brilliance of Scholes and Berbatov. The former England international's raking pass picked out the Bulgarian wide on the right and his first touch brilliantly took him clear of Sylvain Distin. With acres of space to run into the languid striker took five or six paces before lashing an early shot into the bottom corner, taking Howard by surprise. Baines curled a free-kick into the side-netting and as Osman hit a woefully-weak shot at Van der Sar as the hosts tried to find a way back but, as has been the case in their previous matches, they lacked a cutting edge. However, in a dramatic finish Cahill headed home in injury-time before Arteta's deflected strike snatched an unlikely point.
