Evans is eligible to play Sunday against Everton after serving a six-match suspension for spitting at Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse.

With Phil Jones out with an ankle injury, Evans could get a chance to start, though youngster Paddy McNair did play well in place of Jones last weekend against Chelsea.

Evans' appeal of his FA charge for spitting at Newcastle's Papiss Cisse on Wednesday was denied, and he has been suspended for six games.

Evans was getting consistent playing time while fit, though United have plenty of replacements. He also wasn't a great fantasy contributor outside of clean sheets, making him a fairly weak option.

Evans was charged by the FA on Thursday after being caught on video spitting at Newcastle's Papiss Cisse during Wednesday's match.

Cisse was also charged for returning the spit-fire, and each player is facing a suspension if their appeals, should they submit them, are denied.

Evans said that Manchester United is not playing the style of attractive football manager Louis van Gaal has been working on, according to the Daily Mail.

Evans said he thinks the players know they could be playing better, and that Van Gaal wants the team to be playing a more attractive style. Despite being third in the table, United has endured criticism recently over their style of play.

Evans had one tackle, two interceptions and two clearances during Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Evans has started back-to-back matches for United now that he's back to full fitness, and he's got a decent shot at his second clean sheet in three matches on Boxing Day against Newcastle.

Evans is in contention to play Saturday against Arsenal after spending the international break rehabbing his ankle injury with the club, the Telegraph reports.

Evans has been sidelined since picking up the injury Sept. 29 against Leicester City, though his return to fitness will not guarantee a spot in the starting XI, as Chris Smalling is eligible after his three-match red-card ban, and Phil Jones is expected to be fit after recovering from a shin injury.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday that he does not believe Evans (ankle) will be fit to face Arsenal on Nov. 22 after the international break, The Guardian reports.

Van Gaal did intimate that Evans may be fit to be available off the bench, though that does little for fantasy purposes, as he's not a great offensive weapon and defenders usually don't produce big points in limited time.

Evans will likely miss a number of matches, starting with Saturday's tilt with West Ham, due to the ankle injury he picked up last Sunday against Leicester City, ESPN reports.

With Evans, Chris Smalling (thigh) and Tyler Blackett (suspension) all out against the Hammers, Paddy McNair and Tom Thorpe were called up from the Under-21 side. It's unclear how long Evans will be out, but it appears likely he'll return after the international break.
