Manchester United clashed heads with Everton at Goodison Park earlier tonight as they looked to secure a victory on their travels. The Red Devils made a poor start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the fifth minute when Alex Iwobi found the back of the net with an excellent strike. However, Antony equalised for the visitors just ten minutes later with a clinical finish. Cristiano Ronaldo completed the turnaround just before the half-time break when he scored with a great run and finish. Man United were leading 2-1 at half-time.

Everton grew in confidence in the second half but Erik ten Hag’s men managed to defend their narrow lead well. Man United ended up securing a hard-fought 2-1 win away at Merseyside.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player performed during the match against the Toffees.

GK: David de Gea – 6.5/10

The Spanish keeper made one good save in the game but will be disappointed after conceding an early goal.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 7/10

The Portuguese talent was solid at the back and made one good run with the ball.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 6.5/10

Lindelof cleared his lines when needed and earned the ball back twice.

CB: Lisandro Martinez – 6.5/10

The Argentine defensive ace made a few important clearances at the back and did enough to restrict the opposition to just one goal.

LB: Luke Shaw – 6.5/10

Shaw was defensively solid but lacked quality in the Everton half.

CM: Casemiro – 7.5/10

The Brazilian sensation anchored the midfield with conviction and made two good chances in the final third.

CM: Christian Eriksen – 6.5/10

Eriksen didn’t offer enough protection defensively but was a threat going forward.

RW: Antony – 7.5/10

Antony scored with a great finish to equalise for Man United in the 15th minute. He also created some decent chances for others around him.

CAM: Bruno Fernandes – 6.5/10

He was always looking to create chances for others around him but didn’t get a sniff at goal.

LW: Marcus Rashford – 6.5/10

Rashford had a few bright moments in the game but was unfortunate to see his goal get ruled out due to a handball.

ST: Anthony Martial – 7/10

The French striker made a decent start to the game as he set up Antony’s goal. However, he had to come off in the 28th minute due to an injury.

Substitutes:

ST: Cristiano Ronaldo – 8/10

The Portuguese superstar scored the 700th goal of his club career with a fine run and finish which was enough to give Man United all three points tonight.

CM: Scott McTominay – N/A

He hardly had any time to influence the game.

CB: Raphael Varane – N/A

Varane came on in injury time.
