Despite what on paper looked a relatively easy start with fixtures against Swansea, Sunderland Burnley, QPR, the foxes and the Hammer, United have struggled winning just two of their games and drawing two.
The clash with the Toffees however represents Van Gaal toughest assignment as manager yet and while the Dutch boss respects Sunday’s opponents, he will be keen to show that his new look side are up for the challenge.
“I have to say that I like Everton because they want to play football like I want to play football,” he said. “It shall be a very interesting game.
“I know we lost to them twice last season, so it will be difficult.
“I hope we can dominate the game but they will want to do that too. They are more likely to play on the counter than us. That’s also the difficulty.”
Van Gaal will be without the suspended Wayne Rooney for the clash with Juan Mata the most likely replacement. In addition to the absent Rooney, United will also be without Ander Herrera (rib), Chris Smalling (thigh), James Wilson (knock), Jesse Lingard (knee), Phil Jones (hamstring), Jonny Evans (ankle), Ashley Young (groin) and Sam Johnstone (elbow).
Paddy McNair could continue in defence after his debut last weekend while former Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini (ankle) returned to training this week and could be on the bench.
Everton like United have struggled so far this season and currently sit 17th in the table with 6 points on the table. Unlike their North West rivals the Blues have had a tough start to the season having already played Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.
They club have picked up just one, a 2-0 success at WBA, and last time out drew 1-1 with Liverpool, a result they followed up with another point in the Europa league midweek.
James McCarthy (quad) and Seamus Coleman (soft tissue) face late fitness tests ahead of the game while Ross Barkley (knee) and Kevin Mirallas (hamstring) are both out. Steven Pienaar could return however.
