Sir Alex Ferguson's admission that United were "slaughtered" at Goodison in February may console an Everton side without a win and yet to rediscover those heights. David Moyes is not fooled. "I'm sure he said that for the benefit of his own players," said Everton's manager. "We've only beaten them once or twice in recent years." They urgently need another win to stop this campaign listing. United expect to welcome back Rio Ferdinand but Javier Hernández and Antonio Valencia did not return from international duty until late on Thursday. Andy Hunter
