United vs Everton preview: the pitch in the spotlight

Center-stage should be taken by the pitch at Wembley today when the Devils meet the Toffees.

For a pitch that was only renovated recently it really is despicable. Did I hear almost 800 million pounds sterling? Oh, my. Wenger has a point, then?

Looking on from the sidelines would be a worried Fergie and Moyes. Their teams are premiership spoiled and they like to pass the ball around...well, United moreso. However with that aside, it is looking like being an evenly fought game. Everton are not a pushover. Think Cahill, Pienaar, a possible Loius Saha who has a virus, Fellaini...

Yes, United have a strength in depth but the Toffees know how to keep their cool in big ties.

Manchester United (from):
Van der Sar, Foster, Kuszczak, Neville, Evra, Ferdinand, Vidic, Rafael, Fabio, O'Shea, Evans, Ronaldo, Anderson, Scholes, Fletcher, Gibson, Carrick, Park, Nani, Giggs, Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov, Macheda.

Everton (from): Howard, Hibbert, Lescott, Jagielka, Baines, Osman, Pienaar, Neville, Rodwell, Fellaini, Cahill, Yobo, Saha, Vaughan, Nash, Gosling, Jacobsen, Van der Meyde, Castillo, Baxter.

Say, when the Devils meet the Toffees, won't the Devils eat the latter? Just a soliloquy...just like Hamlet's!
