Seamus Coleman has no fears of a potential Manchester United backlash at Everton on Saturday.

Seamus Coleman: Prepares to face Manchester United

The Toffees host United in a lunchtime kick-off with the defending champions still smarting from last week's derby demolition against Manchester City.

United were beaten 6-1 on their own patch by their neighbours, a result Sir Alex Ferguson admitted was the worst of his career.

And although the Red Devils will be determined to get a positive result this weekend, Coleman insists Everton plan to pile on the misery at Goodison Park, where United have failed to win on their last three visits.

"I think teams coming here know what they're going to get," said the Toffees midfielder.

"We never give up and we play for the 90 minutes.

"Teams don't get an easy game and we'll be looking to do that again on Saturday.

"It's a massive game in the Premier League and it's really important to us."

Everton suffered a derby defeat of their own in their last league game at Goodison, losing 2-0 to Merseyside rivals Liverpool.

They were then knocked out of the Carling Cup at home to Chelsea on Wednesday night so Coleman warned the Toffees will be eager to bounce back themselves, not just to get back on track at Goodison but to build on last Sunday's league win away to Fulham.

"Manchester United are definitely going to be going for it," he said.

"They'll be disappointed and we know they'll be like a wounded animal, but we'll be the same.

"The manager has said to us we need to get our heads on. It's really important to us - a massive game at home."
