Everton ended another disappointing matchweek in the Premier League, extending their losing run to three games in a row. They are now standing in the 18th position, which means they have now officially entered the dreaded zone of relegation.
Though it is quite early in the season, Everton will need to get their act together and bounce back with wins in their forthcoming matches, just as they did to finish in the seventh spot in the last term. They went onto the field with that intent in their mind, but were unable to execute it in the right way and faced another humiliating defeat at the hand of Manchester United.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, made it clear about their intention from the word go to make sure that they refrain from making the same mistakes that they did in their last match against Stoke City, which compelled them to end the match in a 2-2 draw in the last match. However, it was not the same case in this match though, as Manchester United came out all guns blazing to turn Everton’s visit to the Theatre of Dreams into a horrific nightmare for the Toffees in their fifth match of the season.
Lukaku’s brilliant form continues-
It seems like the former Everton striker has started the season from where he left it in the last one, in which he went to become the second highest scorer in the Premier League, finishing right after the top scorer Harry Kane. A change of jersey has not affected his hunger for goals, which is clear from his five goals in five league games so far this season.
Manchester United head back to winning ways-
The Red Devils lost their 100 percent record of three wins from three matches when they drew their fourth match against Stoke City in Matchweek 4. However, they have made it back to the winning ways in this match against Everton, demolishing the Toffees 4-0 and will surely look to keep it that way in the forthcoming matches of the season as well.
Red alert for Everton-
Having lost their third match in a row, Everton are currently languishing in the relegation zone and are stranded on the 18th place. It is high time for the Toffees to try harder than they are doing to get back to winning ways and make justice to the high expectations their fans have for them this season.
