Manchester United are in televised action this weekend on BT Sport, as the big-spending Red Devils line up against Everton.

Louis van Gaal's side has shown signs of promise in recent weeks after a rocky start, but concerns about defensive frailty remain.

The expensive additions of Radamel Falcao and Angel Di María have vastly increased United's attacking options, but injuries have left them short of options at centre-half.

A 2-1 win over West Ham United at the weekend saw the 20-time English champions move up to seventh in the table with eight points from six games.

However, van Gaal's side are already a full eight points behind the Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Everton have been another of the slow starters in 2014-15, having claimed just six points from their first six games.

The Toffees needed a late screamer from England defender Phil Jagielka to rescue a point against local rivals Liverpool at the weekend.

But in fairness to Roberto Martinez's side, their start has been difficult - with matches against Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool already negotiated.

A trip to Man United looks like another difficult fixture on paper, but it's fair to say Old Trafford hasn't been the fortress of old in recent times.

The big question is which United turn up at the weekend - the side that blew away QPR 4-0 or the one that conceded five away at Leicester?

BT Sport subscribers can find out at 12pm on Sunday October 5th, live on BT Sport 1.

TV viewers have a number of other top games to look forward to at the weekend, including Eintracht Frankfurt v FC Cologne from the Bundesliga at 5:30pm on Saturday October 4th.

AC Milan v Chievo from Italy's ?Serie A is on-air at 7:45pm, before Brazilian sides Cruzeiro and Internacional lock horns at 10:30pm.

Sunday's games include Wolfsburg v Augsburg (2:30pm) and Borussia Monchengladbach v Mainz (4:30pm) from the Bundesliga, and Juventus v Roma (5pm) and Fiorentina v Inter Milan (7:45pm) from Serie A.
