Everton entertained Manchester United at Goodison Park earlier tonight as they hoped to earn all three points at home. The Toffees made a dream start to the game as they scored the opening goal in the fifth minute when Alex Iwobi scored with a brilliant strike. However, Antony equalised for the Red Devils just ten minutes later before Cristiano Ronaldo made it 2-1 to Man United just before the half-time break.

Frank Lampard’s men gave it a real good go in the second half but failed to net the equaliser as the contest finished with Everton suffering a narrow 2-1 loss in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Everton player performed during the clash against the Red Devils.

GK: Jordan Pickford – 6/10

The English keeper made a couple of solid saves during the game but was a bit untidy with his passing.

RB: Seamus Coleman – 6.5/10

He did his fair share of defending and made one good run with the ball.

CB: Conor Coady – 6/10

Coady earned the ball back twice and made one key chance going forward.

CB: James Tarkowski – 6.5/10

He made a few crucial clearances inside his half but could not stop Man United from scoring twice in the first half.

LB: Vitaliy Mykolenko – 6.5/10

Mykolenko had a few bright moments in the game but offered very little in the final third.

CM: Alex Iwobi – 7.5/10

Iwobi opened the goal-scoring with a brilliant strike in the fifth minute and managed to cause a few problems for the opposition defenders.

CM: Idrissa Gueye – 5/10

He earned the ball back twice but looked shaky when defending at the back.

CM: Amadou Onana – 6/10

Onana anchored the midfield well but should have been more clinical in front of the Man United goal.

RW: Anthony Gordon – 6.5/10

He made two encouraging runs with the ball but had a quiet game in the opponent’s half.

ST: Neal Maupay – 6/10

Maupay came back to defend when needed but his impact was minimal in the final third.

LW: Demarai Gray – 7/10

He caused a few headaches for the Man United defenders but failed to register a goal.

Substitutes:

RW: Dwight McNeil – 6/10

He made one key chance in the final third.

CM: James Garner – 6/10

Garner was a threat after coming off the bench.

ST: Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 6/10

The English forward went close to scoring with his header.

ST: Salomon Rondon – N/A

He didn’t get enough time to influence the contest.
