Man United vs Everton live stream: match preview
With it fast approaching six years since Man United lifted a trophy, Erik ten Hag's men will be eyeing glory in this year's FA Cup to end that drought, as they begin their campaign at home to Everton on Friday.
The Red Devils come into the cup clash amid growing confidence around Old Trafford with the hosts on a run of six straight wins across all competitions.
Here's how to watch a Manchester United vs Everton live stream online wherever you are.
Looking poised for an all-important top four finish in the Premier League, ten Hag will be keen to carry on that form in a competition his team have won on 12 previous occasions, a record only bettered by Arsenal who are on 14.
The buoyant mood for United contrasts sharply to the Toffees, who find themselves under threat of relegation with serious question marks now surrounding Frank Lampard's future as manager at Goodison Park.
The pressure on Lampard has been intensified by an abject 1-4 home defeat to Brighton on Tuesday night, a result that has left his side in 16th position in the Premier League on 15 points.
Everton have plenty of FA Cup pedigree having won the tournament five times, and will likely be grateful for a distraction from gloomy league matters.
Nevertheless, with crucial clashes coming up against fellow strugglers Southampton and West Ham, Lampard may choose to prioritise those upcoming high-stakes Premier League fixtures over this cup tie.
The match is free on ITV, and can also be watched through subscription streaming services like ESPN+ in the US and Paramount Plus in Australia. Here's how to get a Man United vs Everton live stream and watch this FA Cup fixture online from wherever you are.
