Manchester United are back in Premier
League action on Sunday afternoon against
Everton at Goodison Park.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his side
are looking to return to winning ways
following their Champions League exit in
midweek and know victory is crucial if they
are to have any chance of a top four finish.
The game started on a brilliant note , with
Manchester united hoping to get the best out
to secure their top 4 spots.
A Lucas Digne long throw is not dealt with
and, after Calvert-Lewin helps the ball on,
Richarlison acrobatically converts from
inside the box, hooking the ball beyond De
Gea. Diogo Dalot stooped to head the ball
away, but it was very half-hearted. That’s
Richarlison’s 14th goal of the season and his
third in his last six matches.
Sigurdsson scored Evertons second goal to
put them ahead of the red devils in the 28th
minute with an excellent finished.
Sigurdsson’s corner was punched clear by
the Manchester United goalkeeper but it
landed at the feet of Digne, who allowed the
ball to bounce one before winding up a left-
footed pile driver. The result of that is
devastating for United, joy for Everton, as the
red devils trailed by 3 goals to nil in the 56th
minutes of the game.
Theo Walcott finished up the game for
Everton putting man united in pains.
More excruciating defending – Dalot gets
painfully sucked in to leave United at sea –
allows Gylfi Sigurdsson to slip through
Walcott, who side-foots the ball beyond an
exposed De Gea. Humiliating for Manchester
United but no less than Everton deserve.
David de Gea has now conceded four goals
from outside of the box in the Premier
League in 2019; no goalkeeper has let in
more in that timeframe. Beaten again from
The 48 goals Manchester United have
conceded in 2018/19 is the most they’ve ever
conceded in a Premier League season.
