More clean sheets, fewer goals conceded, more bonus points and more points per appearance Jordan Pickford (£5.5m) has David De Gea (£5.5m) comfortably beat in all the categories that matter. Everton’s defensive record was actually similar to United’s until the final third of the season where the Toffees kept eight clean sheets in their final eleven games. While Everton have kept faith in the same backline from 2018-19, United have signed both Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) and Harry Maguire (£5.5m) in a bid to improve their defensive frailties. The choice between the two would appear to be between who you trust more – Everton to continue the form they showed at the end of last season or United to strengthen following their summer outlay.
Verdict: Jordan Pickford
