Everton will likely have added incentive when they face Manchester United after they were handed a ten point deduction by the Premier League.

The sanction, which takes effect immediately, is the biggest ever imposed in the history of the competition, and comes as a result of the Toffees being found guilty of financial wrongdoings.

Sean Dyche’s side now sit 19th in the top flight table, and the former Burnley boss will be desperate to see his side impress when they welcome the Red Devils to Goodison Park after the international break.

United have also had their fair share of off-field distractions this season, most notably Jadon Sancho’s continued exclusion from the first team squad.

Despite interest from Saudi Arabian clubs, it appears that Sancho is unsure about a move to the Middle East leaving his future extremely uncertain.

Sancho faces an uncertain future at Old Trafford

The Englishman hasn’t played for United in more than ten weeks after being ousted from the first team squad after a public fall out with Ten Hag.

After the manager cited Sancho’s attitude in training as the reason why he was left out of the squad to face Arsenal in August, the player responded on social media and hasn’t since featured.

Sancho, 23, joined United from german side Borussia Dortmund in 2021 having scored 50 goals and provided 64 assists for the Bundesliga outfit across all competitions.

He has failed to maintain that form since returning to Manchester, though, scoring just 12 goals and providing only six assists in 82 games.

It is also claimed that the relationship between Ten Hag and Sancho is now almost beyond repair, suggesting that the player will almost certainly depart Old Trafford when the transfer window reopens in January.

He is currently contracted to United until the summer of 2026.
