Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin insists he is ready for the game against Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Red Devils won the reverse fixture 3-0 at Goodison Park, back in October but the Toffees have lost just once away from home so far but the Frenchman believes that the home team can take the three points at stake.
“Since Roberto Martinez came, they have been a possession team, they have a lot of possession and have some very good players,” he told MUTV. “Some fast players, some strong players, some technical players, they have a mix of everything.
“This season, at home they didn’t get many wins, which is strange because Goodison Park has always been a difficult place to go, but they have been good on the road, they’ve lost just once, so it’s going to be more challenging because we know they are more comfortable away from home. It’s going to be up to us to capitalise on any weaknesses.”
He added: “For us, it’s always the same, every team wants to come to Old Trafford and they want to win, it’s one of their games of the season.
“So for us, this match is not going to be different to any others. Maybe Everton’s players feel more comfortable away from home, so we have to try to make it a difficult afternoon for them.”
Schneiderlin is hungry to score at Old Trafford as he is yet to register a goal in front of home fans.
“I have my fingers crossed that I will score my first Old Trafford goal as soon as possible,” he added. “I’ve had a few chances in the last couple of games, but I need to capitalise on one and I’m going to try to score at Old Trafford as soon as I can.
“When I first came, I had big expectations, of course, I wanted to play for the title and I wanted to, straight away, have a big impact on everything.
“Since the weeks have gone on in the season, I’ve felt better and better and, of course, I know I have plenty more to show to everyone and plenty more in my locker. I know I will do it because I’m confident of my abilities.”
Manchester United have the opportunity of climbing to fifth on the log after West Ham United only managed a 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace.
