Owen Hargreaves faces a race to be fit for Saturday's clash with Everton at Goodison Park, and if he does make the match he knows he'll be in for a tough afternoon.

Despite having not played against David Moyes' side, the 26-year-old midfielder is well aware of the the threat posed by Everton, who currently lie third in the Premier League.

"The rest of the lads have all said that Everton away is a tough game, especially with the way they play," he told this week's Red View newsletter.

"They've signed some good players recently. Until they signed Yakubu they played mainly with just Andy Johnson up front, but with this being a home game they'll probably play two up. Yakubu has a great physical presence and he's been a good goalscorer in the past."

It's certain to be no easy ride for the Reds, as was discovered last season at Goodison Park when United had to come from two goals down to clinch a crucial 4-2 win en route to the league title.

"Everton are a good, hard-working team," added Hargreaves. "They play together, don't make a lot of mistakes, defend very well and they're a strong team.

"They keep it quite simple, but they obviously have two good strikers going forward. It'll be a very tough game, but whenever Manchester United show up you're expected to win games, and we'll expect to win at Everton."
