Manchester Utd vs Everton Premier League LIVE Football Score 2 Oct 2021
ABOUT THE MATCH
Manchester United is going head to head with Everton starting on 2 Oct 2021 at 16:30 UTC at Old Trafford stadium, Manchester city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League
Fellaini, on his 100th United appearance, was introduced in the 85th minute to help see out the win but his first meaningful action was to commit a clumsy foul on Idrissa Gueye in the area, and Baines made no mistake from 12 yards.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s sixth goal in five games had earlier put United on course for just a third Premier League win in 11 matches.
The 35-year-old Swede struck with a sweet first-half lob that hit the bar and post before finally deigning to cross the line – although Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg’s will be unhappy with his decision to rush from his area.
United, with manager Jose Mourinho back on the touchline after his midweek ban, also saw Ander Herrera crash a shot off the frame of the goal in the second half.
However, it might have been a different story had referee Michael Oliver shown a red card to United defender Marcos Rojo for a wild, two-footed lunge on Gueye with just 15 minutes gone.
That was the prelude to a bruising encounter for the out-of-form Toffees, who lost Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie to injuries before they rallied for a point late on.
David de Gea
Had an iffy moment from an early corner but otherwise rarely troubled. A clean sheet on his return. 6
Said it all the majority of United’s attacking came down the left with Luke Shaw back. More hope for Kieran Trippier. 6
A serene return to club football for the Swede, aided by the absence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin. An encouraging hour. 7
United’s new formation starts successfully in Everton thrashing
Manchester United may be requesting the same menu next week if they maintain this performance level.
Mason Greenwood ordered his steak overcooked at St Andrews but did not overcook his strike and Luke Shaw needed the carbohydrates as he pounded up and down the turf. Shaw was not one of the players who explored the St Andrews Links yet his corner-taking hit the pin.
United matchgoers had waited 18 months and six days to walk down the Warwick Road on a Saturday and this was about as enjoyable as they could have hoped it would be. Denis Law, clad in a dapper club blazer, nodded approvingly in the directors’ box.
